Might be wrong, but I believe I have read on this forum that you should not use rubbing alcohol on your blocks. It can cause them to craze over time.
Someone with more experience can verify if I am remembering correctly or not.
The best cleaner for blocks is just water and a bit of dish detergent, then rinse.
