After Shave

rubbing alcohol

Here is a frugal homemade recipe for the thrift conscious.  After Shave is composed of two basic ingredients- rubbing alcohol and cologne.  The cologne gives the scent to the rubbing alcohol.  Choose a scent you like, and put a small amount in the bottom of a bottle.  Add enough rubbing alcohol to fill the bottle about a quarter full.  Fill the rest of the bottle with water.  Shake and you are done.
