    I sprayed the inside of my vacuum where I can't reach with alcohol. just realized it is electrical (though quit crappy, no attachments).

    i wonder how long before I should use it?

    can I break it down with water? or something?

    Don't use it and DON'T SPRAY WATER IN IT!

    If you just sprayed 91%AL in it, open it up as much as you can and allow it to dry out for at least 24 hours. The AL dries much faster than water and once it does dry you should be okay.

    The above is my opinion, use at your own risk.

    100% alcohol is used to clean electronic circuit boards. It dries and leave nothing harmful behind.

    Follow what upagain said.

    Only if you could get 100%. That has nothing in it that will remain.
    Flammable as all get out though.

    The hazard could be it could lift some dirt with electrical properties that is in a harmless location and lay it across someplace it could cause issues.

    I have done it in a factory setting and blasted the alcohol off with compressed air.
