Pure Food Grade Alcohol: The Ultimate Super-Tool for Your Home

Culinary Solvent's 200 Proof Food Grade Alcohol ticks all these boxes. This multi-purpose tool promises to make your life easier and more eco-friendly. Let's delve into the multitude of applications this product offers.

Surface Disinfectant

In the age of heightened awareness of hygiene, ensuring your surfaces are thoroughly clean is crucial. Culinary Solvent's 200 Proof Food Grade Alcohol can step in as an effective surface disinfectant. Combining two parts of this alcohol with one part of water in a spray bottle, you can quickly and safely sanitize surfaces in your kitchen, bathroom, and living areas. The alcohol evaporates quickly, leaving no residue, and effectively eliminates germs and bacteria without any harmful side effects of commercial cleaners.

Fruit and Vegetable Wash

Your family's health starts with what they eat. Safeguard the purity of your produce with a natural wash made from one part alcohol and three parts water. A quick spritz and rinse will remove any lingering bacteria or pesticides, providing peace of mind as you prepare meals.

Homemade Hand Sanitizer

The ability to create a homemade hand sanitizer that is effective against germs and gentle on skin is another benefit of this versatile product. Mixing the alcohol with aloe vera gel and a few drops of essential oils creates a sanitizer that is protective without being harsh.

DIY All Natural Food Coloring

Artificial food colors and dyes have been a point of concern for many who strive for a cleaner, healthier lifestyle. They are present in a wide variety of processed foods, often to make them more visually appealing. However, for those interested in a healthier and more natural approach, there's good news: you can easily create your own natural food coloring using 200 proof food grade alcohol and natural ingredients.

Cleaning Kids' Toys

Toys can often be a hotbed for germs. The alcohol, when diluted with water, is safe for cleaning your children's playthings. Simply spray the mixture on the toys, then wipe them clean. Its non-toxic nature ensures safety and cleanliness for your little ones.

Removing Sticky Residue

Sticky residues can be tough to remove. Whether it's labels on new dishes or stubborn adhesive residues, dabbing a bit of the 200 proof alcohol can effectively dissolve the stickiness, leaving your items clean and residue-free.

Cleaning Electronics

The sensitive nature of electronics requires gentle cleaning solutions. A microfiber cloth lightly moistened with this alcohol can clean keyboards, phone screens, and tablets without causing damage or leaving streaks.

Cleaning Glass

Your windows, mirrors, and glass tables can also benefit from the streak-free shine provided by an alcohol and water solution. A quick spray and wipe with a lint-free cloth will have your glass surfaces gleaming.

Removing Permanent Marker Stains

Permanent markers don't have to leave a permanent mark. This alcohol can break down the ink, allowing you to wipe it away from most surfaces, including walls and furniture.

Homemade Disinfecting Wipes

By soaking reusable cloth wipes in a mixture of the alcohol and water, you have homemade disinfecting wipes. They're reusable, effective, and free from the harmful chemicals found in commercial brands.

Removing Ink or Pen Stains from Fabric

An accidental pen mark on clothing isn't a disaster when you have Culinary Solvent's alcohol on hand. Dab the stain with a cloth soaked in alcohol before washing the garment as usual.

Deodorizing Shoes

No one likes smelly shoes. A quick spray of alcohol inside can help eliminate odor-causing bacteria, giving shoes a fresh, clean scent.

Sanitizing Makeup Brushes

Your makeup brushes can be a breeding ground for bacteria. Give them a soak in a diluted solution of alcohol, then let them air dry for clean, sanitized brushes ready for your next application.

Cleaning Stainless Steel

A dab of alcohol can make your stainless steel appliances sparkle. Apply with a soft cloth and buff in the direction of the grain for a streak-free shine.

The versatility of Culinary Solvent's 200 Proof Food Grade Alcohol is indisputable. From cleaning and sanitizing to disinfecting and deodorizing, this product is an effective, non-toxic alternative to many commercial household cleaning products. Its variety of applications around the home can help make daily tasks easier and more sustainable, supporting the well-being of your family and our planet.

"Non-Denatured" means "No Toxic Additives"

Non-denatured alcohol, like the 200 Proof Food Grade Alcohol offered by, contains zero additives, toxic or otherwise. Culinary Solvent is just pure ethyl alcohol – nothing more, nothing less. The term "denatured" refers to alcohol that has been chemically altered with the addition of substances (chemicals allowed due to their toxicity) thereby making the alcohol unsuitable for human consumption. While denatured alcohol is often readily available at most hardware stores, costs less because there is no additional "excise tax" on the product, and is often used in cleaning products despite the potential negative health risks associated with such, these added substances can be extremely toxic, harmful to you or your loved one's health, and environmentally damaging in their manufacture and disposal.

Culinary Solvent's non-denatured alcohol stands in stark contrast to its denatured counterparts. With no harmful additives, it's the safer, more natural choice for numerous uses around your home where safety matters. Culinary Solvent can effectively sanitize surfaces, clean electronics, remove stains, and much (much) more, all without exposing you or your family to unnecessary chemicals.

Isopropyl Alcohol vs Culinary Solvent

When it comes to health and safety, 100% ethyl alcohol has distinct advantages over 70% isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol can be harmful if swallowed, can cause irritation when it comes into contact with skin or eyes, and is known to be drying to the skin with frequent use.

In contrast, 100% ethyl alcohol, particularly when it's food-grade and non-denatured like Culinary Solvent's 200 Proof Ethyl Alcohol, is far less toxic. It's safer for skin contact and, being food-grade, is safe for human consumption in the quantities typically used in food preparation or consumption.

Safer for You (and the Earth, Too)

Beyond being safer for human health, the non-denatured status and 100% corn recipe of Culinary Solvent's 200 Proof Food Grade Alcohol also makes it more eco-friendly and sustainable than denatured alcohol and isopropyl alcohol. Many denaturants used in other alcohol-based cleaning products are non-biodegradable and can contribute to pollution when they make their way into waterways. Similarly, isopropyl alcohol is a petroleum derivative, meaning its production is reliant on non-renewable fossil fuels. The production of isopropyl alcohol often involves chemical reactions that produce harmful byproducts, which can contribute to pollution if not properly managed. Furthermore, improper disposal of isopropyl alcohol can contaminate water and soil due to its slow rate of biodegradation.

Pure ethyl alcohol like Culinary Solvent is made from sustainable natural corn, doesn't pollute the environment with toxic chemicals if spilled or discarded, and breaks down naturally and quickly in the environment, making it the all around greener choice.
