Most people keep rubbing alcohol in their bathroom and use it as a disinfectant for cuts or as a sterilizer for things like tweezers. But there are other great household uses, too. We asked Linda Cobb, a.k.a. "The Queen of Clean" and author of the best-selling book Talking Dirty With the Queen of Clean, for her favorite tricks. Rubbing alcohol can be a very effective cleaner, says Cobb, but not for everything.
Though commonly touted on the web to do everything from clean makeup brushes to soothe a sunburn, Cobb says it can dry out both your brushes and skin, so steer clear.
What is rubbing alcohol great for? These 10 things:
1. All-purpose stain remover
Combined with water, rubbing alcohol can be a great spot remover that works on a wide variety of stains from ink to coffee, says Cobb. Combine one part rubbing alcohol with two-parts water to make the spotter. If you use a large spray bottle you can add one bottle of alcohol and two of the alcohol bottles filled with water. Spray this on spots and spills. Wait a few minutes, then launder as usual.
