Rubbing alcohol is possibly one of the most versatile cleaning agents when it comes to the household. You can clean everything from surprise drawings to the blinds and everything in between. With just a few other bits you can easily find around the house, you can quickly and easily clean up if you ever find yourself out of store bought cleaners.
One of the quickest and easiest things to do when cleaning with alcohol is removing hairspray from a mirror. Just grab a rag and spritz with a bit of alcohol and that sticky residue will be gone in a matter of moments. Not even the sturdiest holding hairsprays will hold up to this trick, leaving you with a clear view of your smiling face.
Speaking of clear views, windows are another article that you can use rubbing alcohol to clean. For this one, it is easiest to use a newspaper rather than a washcloth or paper towel as those can both leave particles behind on your windows. Just mix a solution of 1/2 cup rubbing alcohol to 1 quart (1 liter) water and not only will you have a streak-free window, it will also keep the frost off in those chilly winter months.
With the help of a spatula or drywall knife, the hassle of cleaning venetian blinds is suddenly made hassle-free. If you put a cloth over the spatula or drywall knife then keep it tight with a rubber band or hair tie, you simply dip the cloth into a bit of alcohol and swipe it across the blinds. Much easier than trying desperately not to bend them when attempting to clean it with your hand.
