    Using Rubbing Alcohol

     Rubbing alcohol is another great product that has many uses and can be frugal.

    What do you use rubbing alcohol for in your home?

     I use it to make "wipes" that I take to work -- I wipe down my keyboard, phone and desk with them.

      It's also good for dabbing on itchy mosquito bites ...

    Cordless phones, too!  This is my first step if I feel it's not charging well -- clean the contacts and try charging again.

    I also clean my glasses with alcohol; contacts don't work for me, so I'm in glasses all the time.  (Need new ones, but that's a different story....)

    Wipe down tricky spots on mirrors, sanitize toilet/tub/sink/door handles if I'm out of lysol or just don't feel like going to the other room to get it.

    Definitely!  And any other surface that's not harmed by liquids.

    Re: Using Rubbing Alcohol

    I make my antibacterial all-purpose cleaner using equal parts of rubbing alcohol and distilled white vinegar. I add a few drops of lavender oil for a fragrance.
