Rubbing alcohol for deodorant

I see a lot of posts about funky deodorant alternatives. I just swab rubbing alcohol in my arm pits once or twice day. It kills the bacteria that would cause odor. I've been doing it for years. Anybody else do this?

Yup, I've used it. Eventually I get a little irritation though and end up using a crystal/alum rock or regular stuff for a while until it clears up.

I tried it. It worked but it made my skin painfully dry.

I've heard that alcohol really dries out skin on lots of people. I have pretty oily skin so it's never been a problem for me. Makeup never stays on face in warm weather. In hot weather, in melts right off. Hmmm, perhaps I should be using the rubbing alcohol on my face.

Once in a while I use Hand Sanitizer, if it was all I had in my purse. It works pretty well.
