Use 60-90% Isopropyl Alcohol in solutions with 10-40% water and other water soluble ingredients such as thickeners and essential oils.
If using in a hand sanitiser it is important to note the following:
A 70% solution of Isopropyl Alcohol in water is said to be the most efficient as the water causes the Isopropyl Alcohol to evaporate less quickly therefore it is in contact with the skin for longer while it does its job. The alcohol/water mix penetrates the cell membranes of the microorganisms then spreads throughout them effectively killing them off.
Replace the lid of the container immediately after use to prevent evaporation of the product.
Isopropyl Alcohol does not work with Xanthan Gum but it does work well with hydrated Cellulose Gum to form a thickened hydro-alcoholic gel that can be used for several purposes.
It is less drying to the skin than ethanol so is more suited to use in hand sanitisers, especially for those who need to use them frequently.
No direct Usage
Use as a cleaning spray around the house with freshening essential oils such as Lemon and Grapefruit but don’t use it on quartz or granite surfaces. Dilute the Isopropyl Alcohol first. See the recipe that is included below.
Clean makeup brushes by swirling the brushes around in a small amount of Isopropyl Alcohol and water then rinsing and drying them.
It can also be used to deodorise smelly trainers. Spray a mixture of Isopropyl Alcohol, water and a blend of Rosemary, Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils into your trainers, leave to air dry.
For those of you with children who love stickers, the glue residue can easily be removed by wiping it with Isopropyl Alcohol.
Keep away from the eyes.
Isopropyl alcohol vapour is denser than air and is flammable, therefore it should be kept away from heat and open flame sources.
Replace lid of container immediately after use to prevent evaporation of the product.
