Hello,

As an alternative you can use any other antiseptic solution in the house.

You can use any antiseptic that you may have, like dettol or savlon, etc that is used for wounds.

Hope this shows you the way forward.

Will alcohol work like tequila ?

Alcoholic drinks are not as effective because the concentration is low. Spirit used in such injections have alcohol of 70% but drinks usually have around 40%.

But if there is no other alternative then you can use this also.

Best of course is to go out and get some alcohol spirit from the chemist.


Hope this shows you the way forward
