Ethanol is used as a solvent for a wide variety of compounds; it also evaporates readily. These properties make it very useful for cleaning many stains and spills around the home ethanol alcohol can be used to clean phones, computer keyboards, doorknobs, switch plates, and fresh ink stains on carpets or keyboards. It acts both as a cleaner and disinfectant, which makes it especially useful for bathroom counter tops and other dirty surfaces. Ethanol may not be safe for all carpets, surfaces or materials, however, so you should test it first on a portion of the surface you want to clean.
Its ability to disinfect and the readiness with which it evaporates make ethanol an important item in a first aid kit of mixtures of 70 to 99.9%
Ethanol's activity as a solvent makes it a useful chemical for cleaning some electronic devices, like computer monitor screens, lenses in CD drives, disk heads and contact pins. It's important to note, however, that store-bought ethanol contains water and can act as a conductor of electricity; consequently, spilling ethanol on exposed wires or electronic devices could damage them. So be especially careful when using ethanol around electronics. The alcohol evaporates quickly enough it will not leave an undesirable residue.

I use this to replace numerous household cleaners . I use it for windows, spray as I mop floors, cleaning the bathroom, the toilet, kitchen worktops, stainless steel, etc. It does a great job, doesn't leave smears, sterilises and no after taste on work top surfaces like branded sprays. Saves me money over the year and it works.
This product is fantastic. I no longer buy kitchen cleaners,bathroom cleaners,floorcleaners etc, simply because this does it all. It removes grease instantly, gives my ceramic hob a lovely shine, cleans my windows,mirrors and every cupboard door leaving no smears. On work surfaces it is a cleaner and sanitizer and leaves no after taste when preparing food.Fabulous for cleaning paintwork too. I cant rate this stuff highly enough. Also, it saves me money in the long run as I am no longer buying a bottle of cleaner for all the different jobs around the house.
Ordering is no problem and delivery is fast. Oh and the price is great too !
Will be buying more when needed and have recommended it to my friends and family. ITS BRILLIANT!
I purchased the 5 litre bottle which comes with an additional 500 ml "sprayer".
I am extremely pleased with this product. It is a brilliant alternative to using surgical spirits.
I primarily use it to clean an elderly relatives feet, and the area surrounding a nasty leg ulcer prior, to treating the ulcer itself with manuka honey which has healing properties. I also use it to sanitize my hands and any implements e.g. scissors which are used for cutting dressings, to try and maintain a sterile an environment as possible.
I have also found it handy for general quick cleaning of various household items e.g. magnifying glass, computer keyboard etc.
At a ratio of 70% alcohol to 30% de-onised water it is strong enough to kill bacteria and it doesn't leave a residue on e.g. glass. It is also brilliant for removing the residue from plastic tape.
I found the sprayer very useful, because it makes application of the rubbing alcohol more efficient, by allowing it to be sprayed directly on to the surface required, rather than having to first apply the alcohol via e.g. cotton pads which not only saves money on cotton pads, but makes the rubbing alcohol last longer.
For a 5 litre bottle it cost me approx £5 plus approx £7 for courier postage (delivered in 1-2 days) so just under £15 in total. This represented, for me, a tremendous saving over time, because to purchase the equivalent in e.g. surgical spirits (5 litres) from a high street store at an average cost of e.g £4.60 per 500 ml bottle would cost (10 x 500ml at £4.60 each) approx £46. So buying through Chemisphase saved me over £30 per 5 litres.
I would recommend Chemiphase to anyone looking to purchase rubbing alcohol.
For information, I found it easy to decanter the contents of the 5 Litre bottle into the 500ml sprayer. The 500 ml sprayer actually holds about 250mls of liquid due to a plastic mesh or similar inside it (I'm not sure of the purpose, but I do know that e.g. some portable 5 litre petrol cans also contain a mesh to limit a fire hazard if they were ignited or exposed to a flame). As a guide then, the plastic sprayer can be refilled about 20 times from a 5 litre container.
I was impressed with the Customer Service at Chemiphase, because when I first inquired by phone, their sales staff spent time answering my queries about the product, bottle sizes, postage etc and I found their answers to be accurate. It is because I am so pleased with this and the product that I have spent time writing an honest opinion / review which I hope will be of use to others.
