NuGenTec Offers Bulk Discount Pricing on Isopropyl Alcohol 99%

Read on to learn four home uses of isopropyl alcohol 99% that you never would have thought to use.

Isopropyl Alcohol is the ubiquitous solvent.  It is cheap, effective and has a wide range of uses.  In the world of industrial cleaning, isopropyl alcohol is the solvent of choice due to the following features:
  • Dissolves a wide range of non-polar compounds
  • Evaporates quickly
  • Leaves nearly zero oil traces
  • Low cost

Along with other specialty-formulated products to suit industry degreasing needs, NuGenTec is now offering IPA 99% with bulk price discounts.    

Industry Uses of Isopropyl Alcohol 99%

In industry, IPA 99% is used on large scales and can be found in a surprising number of everyday products.  IPA is used as a solvent for the following:
  • Paint thinners
  • Inks
  • Cleaners and degreasers
  • Windshield and door lock de-icers
  • Antiseptics
  • Gas dryer fuel additives
  • Many more

4 DIY Uses of Isopropyl Alcohol 99%

In addition to its uses in industry, there are many fun, at-home uses for IPA 99%.  Here are our favorites:

1  Make Your Own Air Freshener

Just add 10-15 drops of essential oil to about one cup of IPA and put that in a spray bottle.  This will keep any room or workplace smelling fresh.

2  Make Your Own Gel Ice Pack

There’s no need to buy gel ice packs - take advantage of the low freezing point of IPA to make your own gel ice pack.  It’s easy!
  • Take a sealable plastic bag
  • Add 1 part IPA to 2 parts water
  • Close it, shake it up, and stick it in the freezer!

3  Remove Ring-Around-The-Collar Stains

If you have a favorite, light-colored button-down shirt, it probably has a ring-around-the-collar stain.  No need to get rid of it and buy a new one, simply use a washcloth with IPA and scrub the stain away - your shirt will be good as new.

4  Make Your Own Windshield Washer Fluid

If it’s time to fill your washer fluid, save a few dollars and mix your own.

Just add the following to a clean, 1 gallon jug:
  • 1-2 cups of isopropyl alcohol 99% (use 2 cups if you are exposed to extremely cold winters; 1 if you live in California, like NuGenTec)
  • 1 oz liquid castille soap
  • Fill to the top with water and mix.

In addition to your industry needs, we hope you’ll have fun with these little life hacks made possible by IPA 99%.
