Warning: Check the Strength of the Alcohol and Witch Hazel you are buying!

When you purchase rubbing alcohol or witch hazel at the store please read and make sure you are purchasing the highest % of purity you can find.

Try to purchase 100% Witch Hazel and at least 75% alcohol, 93% is even better.

I was reading the packages at the big chain store and one was 48%. the first ingredient was water. Yes it was under a $1 but if I want to pour water on my cut I don't need you bottling it for me, and putting a fancy name to it. The witch hazel was also under 50% . Try to buy 100%, the other bottle had a whole bunch of names I have no idea what they are. Look for pure! You may pay a little more but think of it as the bottle of 100% can make 2 bottles if I added water DO NOT EVER ADD WATER TO IT but you get the idea (HOPEFULLY) if not I will get lots of nasty notes from people. Stay safe!

    @bcabrobin Agreed. Rubbing alcohol (isopropyl) must be at least 70% to be effective at sterilising equipment according to protocols. Place equipment or instruments in alcohol for 20 minutes and then let air dry.
