Hello, I was/am under the impression that rubbing alcohol will kill mold/mildew. Will using it in small amounts with a cotton pad or q-tip on the inside of an M1 liner have ill effects?

Solution of vinegar will work too.

Rubbing alcohol will immediately kill molds and a quick swipe of a wash cloth will remove the residue. Using rubbing alcohol on your helmet liner shouldn't have any ill effects so long as you don't do something silly like try to soak the liner in alcohol. The alcohol will quickly evaporate, so there shouldn't be any residue.

Okay, thanks. I've done this a couple of times but was not sure if it would damage the liners construction on the inside. Dabbing a couple of small spots on the outside seems to mark the paint. I was not aware of alcohol for paint removal like I have since read.
