19 Different Uses For Hand Sanitizer. Not Just For Cleaning Hands. Even I was surprised how handy these tips are.
1. Give your phone’s screen a shine with a dab of the stuff on a soft cloth. Believe me, your phone could use a proper sanitizing.
2.Clean your glasses or sunglasses. It’ll eliminate hairspray specks on your specs, too.
3.Dab it on a zit. The alcohol in hand sanitizer will dry that thing right up.
4.Erase “permanent” markers from whiteboards, clothing, and walls. (Be sure to test in an inconspicuous spot first.)
5.Get rid of paint stains on just about any surface, including paint brushes.
6.Remove sticky residue from labels.
7.Stop mosquito bites from itching. Really!
8.Sanitize your makeup brushes after washing them — rub a little hand sanitizer in the bristles and allow them to air dry.
9.Emergency deodorant: wipe it on and let it dry. Don’t do this on freshly-shaved pits, though.
10.Clean mirrors and windows in a pinch. (Bonus: it will prevent frost and fogging!)
11.Disinfect minor wounds in an emergency.
12.Get sticky pine pitch off your hands and other surfaces.
Clean the spills on child car seats.
13.Treat greasy stains before washing clothes. (Use unscented, uncolored sanitizer for this.)
14.Clean dusty candles: wipe on then wipe away the dust.
15.Get fingerprints off stainless steel. Yep, even your refrigerator!
16.Remove Scuff Marks
Have scuff marks on your shoes? It turns out hand sanitizer is one of the many things that can remove dark marks on light shoes.
17.Clean Household Items
Because of its alcohol content, hand sanitizer is great for cleaning household items. Try it on sinks, faucets, countertops, and other surfaces. It wipes away dirt, but evaporates quickly, so it’s even safe to use for cleaning computer keyboards.
18.Remove Sticky Labels
Need to remove those pesky price tag stickers on a present? Easy! Try hand sanitizer: The alcohol in the sanitizer works to de-stick the adhesive in the sticker glue. Just rub a bit into the spot and let it sit for a couple minutes, then use a coin to scrape it off. It will even work on bumper stickers!
19.Help Ingrown Hairs and Nails
Your on-the-go hand sanitizer can serve double-duty on ingrown hairs from shaving, as well as ingrown toenails. Rub the sanitizer on the skin in the affected area to disinfect it and eliminate the bacteria that causes the inflammation.
