    Which is more effective? Rubbing alcohol or soap and water?

    i wouldnt recomend either highly, if you have a bad cut i think the best thing next to going to the doctor would be clean luke warm water and a clean dressing which you change regularly, definatly dont use soap in the water though

    Peroxide stings though. But it's fun to use. Maybe that's just me.

    please be aware thought that peroxide is a harsh chemical and not suitible for daily use in cleaning wounds, its an ok one off but after that it will only inhibit the healing of the wound
