Denatured Alcohol Vs Isopropyl Alcohol
Is it enough to clean my grooming tools (nail clippers, scissors etc.)with a paper towel and spray them with some isopropyl or denatured alcohol?
Do a bit better: Please wash your utensils with soap and water and then soak in alcohol. It is preferable to get the sanitazion formulas from a beauty equipment store and after thoroughly cleaning soaking in that liquid. Do not share utensils with others. Fungal infections come from this behavior.See 1 more doctor answer

Is alcohol denatured a carcinogen? I use 12 anti bacterial wipes. Does this increase my cancer risk?

Not the best: Initially clean with betadine, then daily dress with a less caustic medicine. Daily application of even hydrogen peroxide causes tissue destruction and retards natural healing. Best to see a doctor, at least once, and get a good treatment regemin so you will heal as fast and safely as possible. Your pharmacist can be of help as well.
The alcohol: Isopropyl alcohol contains just that, alcohol. Alcohol is extremely drying and kills germs on your hands by disolving their membranes. Your skin cells have membranes too.
Isopropyl Alcohol: Here is the msds for the product: http://www. Officedepot. Com/pdf/msds/877218.Pdf. It consists of pure isopropyl alcohol and deionized water. Are you experiencing a skin reaction to it? Ia is a powerful drying agent and can irritate the skin. Topical corticosteroid creme can help. If this doesn't clear up, consult your dermatologist. Of course, you should never ingest isopropyl alcohol!See 1 more doctor answer
Horrible: The international programme on chemical safety, says ingesting isopropyl alcohol can be lethal (8 oz lethal -adult & 3 oz lethal- child). It can cause vomiting, seizures, loss of consciousness & respiratory problems. Isoproply alcohol would only be consumed by someone who was stupid or someone who was suicidal. If are considering suicide - please go to your nearest er for help.
Can I clean razor blades with isopropyl alcohol? I bought gillete Mac 3 disposable razors. Should I throw that razor away or use it till it's dull?
OK to keep using it: Disposable razors are designed and intended to be used repeatedly until they become too dull, and probably almost all men do it that way, without cleaning or disinfecting them. If you have no obvious skin infection in the shaved area, and if the razors are not shared with other persons, there is no health risk.
Wound: You can use hydrogen peroxide to cleanse your wound or you can use rubbing alcohol but you may want to use one or the other, not both together
Could prolonged/frequent exposure to isopropyl alcohol on your skin be absorbed and affect your liver?
Isopropyl alcohol: Definitely some isopropyl alcohol absorbs through the skin when applied- usually for medical uses. Fortunately, however, you need very large doses for toxicity to develop. Your liver can certainly handle the trace amounts that may come through the skin from hand sanitizers and the like. Even over the long term, I wouldn't worry too much. Drinking alcohol (any) would have far more of an affect.

Would 70% isopropyl alcohol be a sufficiently effective cleaner for toilets, plungers and other surfaces contaminated with fecal matter?
Probably but: Not the intended use for isopropyl alcohol. A bleach containing product is better
Which of these kills microbes faster, 3% hydrogen peroxide or 70% isopropyl alcohol? I am considering them as alternative cleaners around the house.

Simple Care: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected.
The alcohol: Isopropyl alcohol contains just that, alcohol. Alcohol is extremely drying and kills germs on your hands by disolving their membranes. Your cells have membranes too.
Is it okay to rub isopropyl alcohol on head for razor bumps? Will it be able to dry out the razor bumps?
Not effective: Best to use non alcohol containing facial moisturizer. Also shaving with, not against the direction of hair growth can reduce irritation from shaving as well. Softening hair with warm, moist towel prior to shaving or shaving in shower also helpful.
Can you please tell me if it's less dangerous to smell alcohol wipes then a cotton ball soaked in isopropyl alcohol?
No: Either one basically gives off similar fumes and produces the same effects - killing brain cells. You are basically engaged in a type of huffing. There is no good side to this except to feed a compulsion/addiction you have, so I would seek out psychological evaluation and treatment to help you overcome this habit.
Is it possible to get a bac level of. 219 from rubbing isopropyl alcohol on skin. If so how much alcohol and for how long?
