An Unexpected Weed Whacker0

 Do you have some of this stuff sitting in your medicine cabinet?   You know not to drink the rubbing alcohol, right?   If it were meant for drinking it would be in the liquor cabinet and not the medicine cabinet.  And also I’ve heard that it caused blindness when moon-shiners used it to make their hooch.  Or maybe that was due to watching too many Andy Griffith Show reruns.  Hard to tell. 

But, did you know that rubbing alcohol can be a weed killer.  Simply mix two tablespoons with a pint of water, pour into a spray bottle, and make the weeds suffer!

How does this work?  Well, rubbing alcohol accelerates evaporation.  Do I need to explain any further?

Just in case I do, here ya go: rubbing alcohol sucks the moisture out of living things –  such as weeds.  But be careful when you spray it around.  Friendly fire could cause your favorite plants to also shrivel up and die.

More uses for rubbing alcohol can be found (oddly enough) at Christian Personal Finance
