Good old chlorine bleach is great for cleaning impervious surfaces such as tile, etc. precisely because it kills bacteria, but the space had better be well ventilated or you'll gas yourself, possible lung damage. Same for ammonia but don't go mixing the two. Muriatic acid is another. I wouldn't advise using any of these topically for infection though, they can do just as much damage as the microbes. Kerosene and battery acid? Don't go there, you're going to get somebody killed, imho.

Most of the topical antiseptics you buy from the store have a petroleum based products in them, kerosene,

I've used kerosene for over 50 years and I'm still alive.

Battery acid, just a small drop on an infected cut pretty much takes the infection out.

Just have some fresh water handy to wash it off.

First time I used battery acid was by accident.

Had a cut on side of my finger and another on the end of the same finger. Went straight down the end of my finger half way through the nail. Both cuts were infected and my finger was swollen and a bright red.

Pulled a cracked battery out of a tractor. The acid from the battery soaked the bandage on my finger.

The water trough was about 100 yards away, so it burned like crap until i got to the trough to wash it off.

Next day infection, swelling, and soreness was pretty much gone.

I've dabbed acid on cuts a lot of times since then.

Hasn't killed me yet, although I do get an urge to jump start a car every now and then.
