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%.
