Mad Scientist Lab Gear: Quick Multipurpose Cleaner

Introduction: Mad Scientist Lab Gear: Quick Multipurpose Cleaner

Every scientist is bound to get their hands dirty while working in the lab, or shop, or at home. Thats why I cobbled together this cheap cleaner that does a very good job of scrubbing off dirt, grease, oil, sharpie, %99.99 of bacteria. You get the Idea.

This is the first in my Mad Scientist Lab Gear series.

Step 1: The Ingredients and Formula

Ingredients(in no particular order)

-A bottle of alcohol-based hand sanitizer(the thicker, the better)
-granular salt or other gritty, granular substance that doesn't dissolve in alcohol


1 part of solution/fluid mix(if your adding extra liquids) to 1 part salt(or other granular substance of your choosing), shake hard in a sealed container and its ready to use.

Step 2: Other Notes

If you modify the formula or add stuff, I don't mind at all, I'd rather like to hear how it goes for you.

Use a container with a lid that has a little hole in it (the flip top kind) as this stuff is pretty quirky in the pump tops.

Gojo will works pretty well on everything, but that's not the point now, is it? This is a quick fix, when you're at home or wherever without Gojo.
