The main ingredient of medical alcohol is ethanol. In daily life, it is common for some people to use medical alcohol to scrub wounds to achieve the purpose of sterilization and disinfection. The reason why 75% alcohol can be disinfected is because it has a great penetration ability and can drill into the body of the bacteria to coagulate the bacterial protein, thereby killing the bacteria.

If the concentration of alcohol is too high, the protein on the surface of bacteria will solidify, resulting in a dura mater, which has a protective effect on bacteria and prevents further infiltration of alcohol, so the disinfection effect of concentrated alcohol is not as good as that of dilute alcohol.
