1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Rubbed Out", Way to Die #431, is the sixth death featured in the season finale "It's a Dead, Dead, Dead World", which aired on July 15, 2012.


Jeremy is a man with germophobia. While taking out the trash one day, a homeless man begins to dig through Jeremy's trashcan before sneezing on Jeremy, causing him to freak out and run inside. Jeremy fills the bathtub with gallons of isopropyl alcohol (commonly known as rubbing alcohol) and climbs inside to cleanse himself of germs. However, a large quantity of the alcohol absorbs in his skin, causing him to die from lethal alcohol poisoning.
