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.

Sort of. First off rubbing alcohol doesn't have to be all alcohol, it can be some water in it too, and water can promote rust. Next thing rubbing alcohol can remove a possibly protective layer of grease, which can make metal rust faster.

Drinking rubbing alcohol can kill you by destroying your organs. Don't do it.

Usually rubbing alcohol contains methyl alcohol. It will kill you or at-least make you blind. Never use rubbing alcohol for drinking purpose. Specially when you have so many good alcohol beverages to drink.

The two main elements that make up rubbing alcohol are carbon and hydrogen. However, oxygen is also part of the components.

Difference In Grain and Rubbing AlcoholIf memory serves me correctly, grain alcohol is derived from the fermentation of various grains, with the most common being from corn, and it's safe to consume. On the other hand, rubbing alcohol contains isopropyl alcohol (which is a chemically made alcohol), and usually contains additional water and sometimes glycerine, and isn't intended to be substituted for either grain or wood alcohol. To drink it would make one very ill and may even be lethal, or cause blindness. In other words grain alcohol is not equal to rubbing alcohol. period.steph says no.

The water will not "disappear"; it will evaporate. If it's hot, water will evaporate faster.

Rubbing alcohol (also called isopropyl alcohol) is made by combining water and propene. Propene is a gaseous hydrocarbon -- a byproduct of the oil refining or natural gas industries. Don't drink it !!! (It will make you sick.) Ethyl alcohol or ethanol (a.k.a moonshine) is formed by fermentation & distillation. This is the drinkable kind of alcohol.

You will need 2 gallon size zippered bags, 1 bottle of rubbing alcohol, and water. The mixture is 3 parts water to one part rubbing alcohol. Double bag to ensure the mixture does not leak. This type of ice pack will mold itself to the injured area and is a very effective tool to use in pain control.

Yes. Let the rubbing alcohol sit for a little bit before you squirt it out, and squirt it out slowly. Make sure you clean it with water a few times afterwards before you use it again.

No. Rubbing alcohol is a type of alcohol called Isopropyl Alcohol (or isopropynol). Drinking alcohol is ethyl alcohol (or ethynol). They are different at a molecular level, which means you would have to add and remove atoms to change them. You are about as likely to do this as to turn your charcoal for your BBQ into diamonds at home.

Rubbing alcohol probably does not kill the ringworm fungus. You have to immerse the brush in very hot water. Alternately you have to keep the brush immersed in 70 % alcohol for hours to make it free of ringworm fungus. The practice of rubbing the alcohol to your arm before giving injection is also questionable. Bacteria are not killed by such a short exposure to alcohol. The healthy skin does not have enough bacteria to create problem, when you pierce a skin with sharp needle.

Take a lint free cloth. Spray or drip some rubbing alcohol on the cloth, or if the screen is not so dirty make a mix of 50 % distilled water and 50 % rubbing alcohol. Gently wipe the screen. Repeat if necessary.

Active Ingredients Ethyl Alcohol by Volume 70% Ingredients Denatonium Benzoate , Methyl Isobutyl Ketone , Water The ingredients will be listed on the bottle. There are two standard kinds of rubbing alcohol: (1) one made with isopropryl alcohol, which has a certain toxicity but is more pleasant or neutral smelling; and (2) one made with ethyl alcohol with an added denaturing agent to make it inedible. The ethyl alcohol (ethanol) variety has a bitter or sour or unpleasant smell, and is therefore much less popular than the isopropryl alcohol variety. This is why even though the pharmaceutical definition for "rubbing alcohol" is denatured ethyl alcohol, isopropryl alcohol is far more available commercially and is also labeled as "rubbing" alcohol. The uses of both varieties are the same, although isopropryl alcohol, because of its inherant toxicity, carries warnings about overuse and safe handling. According to Wikipedia.org1: Common, over the counter "Rubbing Alcohol" in pads or in fluid form is generally 60-70% solution of isopropanol in water. Although Isopropanol is sometimes sold as "Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol, 70%" and "Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol, 99%" (harder to find but generally more useful for experimenters & cleaning uses), there is no isopropyl alcohol in the United States Pharmacopeia formula for Rubbing alcohol, U.S.P.. It is used as a disinfectant, and is a common solvent.

Rubbing alcohol should not be ingested in children AND adults, no matter if you are in perfect health, ingesting more than an ounce will make you feel the need to call 911

No. Isopropopal alcohol will dry any water out of the fuel system by scattering the h2o molecules, but it will not increase the octane rating, or power of the engine. Too much will lower the combustability
