When to Use Alcohol Swabs

An injury such as a cut can occur at any time. Many injuries can be treated at home or at work with simple supplies that can be found in a standard first aid kit.


Alcohol swabs should be located in the first aid kit at your home, in your car, or at work. Alcohol swabs are made from a cotton-type material and saturated with isopropyl alcohol. They are sealed in individual packets to keep them sterile and moist until they need to be used. Alcohol swabs are made in a variety of sizes that can be used to treat different types of wounds. 

When and When Not to Use Alcohol Swabs

Use Alcohol Swabs

If you get a cut and you are not in a place where you have access to soap and water, you can clean the area with an alcohol swab instead. This is a good alternative if you get a cut or a scrape while you are in your car or out hiking, camping, or participating in other outdoor activities. Alcohol swabs can be used to clean insect bites and new blisters. They can also be used to disinfect medical equipment, such as bandage scissors and tweezers.

Alcohol swabs should not be used on sensitive skin because they can cause the skin to become dry, red, and irritated. They should not be used to clean an open wound because they can cause damage that could delay or prevent healing. Alcohol swabs should not be used on deep puncture wounds or bites or in the eyes or nose. They should not be used to try to lower a fever.
