I know for a fact that you can mix rubbing alcohol and water, as most rubbing alcohol is a water and isopropyl alcohol solution, but when you mix vinegar and backing soda a gas is produced, so it probably wouldn't mix that well.

Rubbing alcohol is mixture with different compositions; rubbing alcohol can contain isopropyl alcohol or ethanol plus methanol, coloring and odorous substances etc.

Very much so. Drinking alcohol is called ethanol. Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) on the other hand is very hazardous if consumed. DO NOT try to drink rubbing alcohol.

try rubbing vinegar on youself or rubbing alcohol also calamine lotion helps relieve the itch

Yes it does. works just as good as the mixture on your hair. Vinegar, rubbing alcohol and water.

There are different types of isopropyl rubbing alcohol. You have to understand that there are different proofs of alcohol. An alcohol proof is defined as twice the percentage of alcohol volume. So depending on what proof your rubbing alcohol is ingredients could possibly change. Now to answer you question, the most common type of rubbing alcohol is the 70% isopropyl rubbing alcohol. INGREDIENTS INCLUDE: -isopropyl alcohol 70% proof -trace amounts of multiple minerals that are so small they don even matter

They're the same (isopropyl alcohol), generally speaking. Although there might be another "alcohol" compound that also goes by the name "rubbing alcohol".

Examples: vinegar, beer, rubbing alcohol, wine, gasoline.

Examples: rubbing alcohol, beer, liquid detergent, vinegar, gasoline.

when you have rubbing alcohol with 91% more alcohol, distilled white vinegar, and water the distilled white vinegar wins for some reason but I'm guessing if acetone removes permanent marker then get an acetone nail polish remover and try that and vinegar an alcohol.

Rubbing alcohol is usually 2-propanol and water. Propylene glycol is 1,2-propanediol, a different compound.

No. Rubbing alcohol contains either Isopropyl or Denatured Ethyl alcohol.

I believe it's ethyl alcohol. Also I think rubbing alcohol is 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% water.. Hope i helped!Rubbing alcohol is a solution of 70% isopropyl alcohol (also called isopropanol or 2-propanol), and 30% Deionized water.Ethyl alcohol is something entirely different.Note that there are also different solutions of Isopropyl alcohol that can also be used for disinfecting and first aid, but Rubbing alcohol is the household name for the 70% Isopropyl alcohol solution.

Basically you get weaker rubbing alcohol. Rubbing alcohol is already a mixture of water and isopropyl alcohol.

rubbing alcohol, baking soda, vinegar, coke may work.

Do NOT Drink Rubbing Alcohol It can cause blindness. Rubbing alcohol is "isopropyl" alcohol, not the same chemical as grain alcohol, ("ethyl" alcohol). Don't drink it! Rubbing alcohol is POISONOUS to drink!

Rubbing alcohol may contain methanol, ethanol, isopropanol, water, a dye, etc.; the recipe is different for each manufacturer.

It is a mixture of denatured alcohol, water and agents added to make the alcohol unpalatable to drink and sometimes colorants. There are two common types of rubbing alcohol, Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol and Ethyl Alcohol Rubbing Alcohol.

No, rubbing alcohol is very flammable.

Yes, rubbing alcohol boil.

No. Rubbing alcohol is a solution.

No, rubbing alcohol is 2-propanol.

Yes, rubbing alcohol is polar because all alcohol is polar. :) Yes, rubbing alcohol is polar because all alcohol is polar. :)
