Everyone should have a first-aid kit.  However, if you get hurt, and you need an emergency disinfectant, use mouthwash.  Clean your wound first, and then apply the mouthwash to the surface. Seek medical attention if necessary, or buy some proper disinfectant as soon as possible.  Don't neglect your health or well-being to save money.

Frugal footnotes:


Here are some other frugal tips for disinfectant.

- Rubbing alcohol is a disinfectant.
- Vinegar with a little water and salt is a mild disinfectant.  Use 1 tsp vinegar, and 1 Tbsp
of salt to 3/4 cup water.
- You can substitute lemon juice for vinegar in the above recipe.
- To sooth a wound after applying disinfectant, cover with a breathable band-aid.
- Never use bleach on your body.  It will burn your skin. It is for household use only!
- Disinfectant wipes are also for household cleaning.
