I just use 91% rubbing alcohol and i've never had a problem, alcohol will kill as much stuff as a flame will.

The right procedure is to flame the needle and quickly wipe it with a alcohol soaked cotton piece.
If you flame the needle first, i think 70% rubbing will work. Could be risky if you don't.
Anyway, 90%+ is available at most drug stores, you should use it.

I think 70% alcohol works better then other percentages because the 30% water content allows the alcohol to enter through the cell membrane of the contamination bacteria which is more effective in killing them. just found this link on another post http://www.charm.net/~sj/lab_techniques.pdf read the part about disenfection

The rubbing alcohol will cool it off.
