Clean Bath Vanity With Alcohol to Remove Hairspray Residue.
That dried hairspray on the counter won't wash off. Put some rubbing alcohol on some tissue or cotton ball and wipe. The surface will sparkle and it will not harm the surfaces. Yes, you can use it on your eyeglasses, too. It works just like those eyeglass cleaners.
This is without harmful chemicals. You will need a spray bottle with an adjustable spray head. Fill the bottle with rubbing alcohol and adjust spray head so that it sprays a fine mist. When you spray fruit flies, the rubbing alcohol will not kill them but it will knock them out so that they fall onto the floor where you simply sweep them up. Doesn't work as good as insecticide, but then again, you won't be poisoning your family and yourself either!436
