Just a guess… But I think rubbing alcohol would be bad for any tricomes.

I have heard captain Jack’s dead bug works well.

@Hellraiser @Covertgrower @Myfriendis410 are much more experienced maybe they could help.

Actually you can use a dilute mix of Isopropyl alcohol: like 2 Tablespoons in a gallon. It actually works but dries leaves out worse than straight H2O2. I’ve never tried it although @garrigan62 is our expert there.

I wish I had seen this before! I sprayed my plants with 50/50 alcohol and water. Now the buds and leaves have turned brown and smell like hay. I’m in the 8th week of flowering. Have I ruined my plants and should I cut them down and start again or might they recover? I sprayed them 2 days ago. Any advice much appreciated.

H202 does nothing so I used lost coast plant therapy worked great
