Description

IPA is a useful addition to every garden; it’s a versatile solvent that can be used for cleaning your grow room surfaces and equipment of any residues, while simultaneously sterilizing 99% viruses and bacteria on contact.


IPA can also be used to extract essential oils for plants such as lavender and chamomile – there’s two methods used, a quick wash or complete extraction.


Quick wash iso

A ‘quick wash’ is where the iso is in contact with the plant material for around 30 seconds and no more. This method targets aromatic compounds like terpenes and flavonoids while leaving plant lipids and waxes.


Complete extraction iso

In this method, the plant material is left to sit in the IPA for an extended period of time, allowing all dissolvable compounds into solution. This method extracts lipids, waxes and chlorophyll as well as the targeted compounds.


Both methods then require the solvent to be evaporated, leaving the extracted concentrate.


How to use isopropanol alcohol

If using IPA to remove plant residue, we recommend using it straight from the bottle, as 99% will provide the best solvent characteristics. It’s particularly effective at removing resin from harvesting equipment.


If using IPA to sterilize surfaces, we recommend diluting it with 30% by volume water, as this will slow down the evaporation of the IPA, letting it fully sterilize any bacteria or viruses it’s in contact with before evaporating. IPA evaporates really quickly, especially on warm surfaces.
