Furthermore, does isopropyl alcohol kill mold spores?
Isopropyl alcohol cleans wood, linoleum, tile, glass and sealed surfaces of mold and mildew stains and spores. Isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) makes a great mold and mildew remover. Dip a clean cloth in rubbing alcohol and wring out OR. Using the spray bottle, spray the stained area.
Similarly, how do you kill fungal spores? To kill mold: Use white distilled vinegar and pour it into a spray bottle without watering it down. Spray the vinegar onto the moldy surface and leave it to sit for an hour. Finally, wipe the area clean with water and allow the surface to dry. Any smell from the vinegar should clear within a few hours.
Also, is isopropyl alcohol safe for extraction?
It's worth mentioning that Isopropyl alcohol isn't recommended for cannabis extraction, it's toxic and personally I wouldn't ingest or consume oil made with it in any way other than a topical application (external use only).
Can you kill mold with rubbing alcohol?
Although alcohol will not prevent more mold from growing back, it will kill any existing mold and mold spores. Any form of alcohol, including vodka and rubbing alcohol will kill mold and are cheaper than other alternatives.
