House Hold Uses
The compound is used in bathtub refurbishing. Dichloromethane is highly used industrially in the production of pharmaceuticals, strippers, and process solvents.
Industrial and Manufacturing Uses
DCM is a solvent that is found in varnish and paint strippers, which are often used to remove varnish or paint coatings from various surfaces. As a solvent in the pharmaceutical industry, DCM is used for the preparation of cephalosporin and ampicillin.
Food and Beverage Manufacturing 
It is also used in manufacturing beverage and food manufacturing as an extraction solvent. For instance, DCM can be used to decaffeinate unroasted coffee beans as well as tea leaves. The compound is also used in creating hops extract for beer, beverages and other flavoring for foods, as well as in processing spices. 
Transportation Industry 
DCM is normally used in the degreasing of metal parts and surfaces, such as railroad equipment and tracks as well as airplane components. It can also be used in degreasing and lubricating products utilized in automotive products, for instance, removal of the gasket and for preparing metal parts for a new gasket. 
Experts in automotive commonly use vapor dichloromethane degreasing process to for the removal of grease and oils from car parts of car transistor, spacecraft assemblies, aircraft components, and diesel motors. Today, specialists are able to safely and quickly clean transportation systems using degreasing techniques that depend on methylene chloride. 
Medical Industry
Dichloromethane is used in laboratories in the extraction of chemicals from foods or plants for medicines such as antibiotics, steroids, and vitamins. In addition, medical equipment can be efficiently and quickly cleaned using dichloromethane cleaners while avoiding damage to heat-sensitive parts and corrosion problems. 
Photographic Films
Methylene chloride is used as a solvent in the production of cellulose triacetate (CTA), which is applied in the creation of safety films in photography. When dissolved in DCM, CTA begins to evaporate as the fibre of acetate remains behind. 
Electronic Industry
Methylene chloride is used in the production of printed circuit boards in the electronic industry. DCM is utilized to degrease the foil surface of the substrate before the photoresist layer is added to the board.  Methylene chloride is widely used as asolvent, as a degreasing and cleaning reagent,in paint removers, and in extractions oforganic compounds from water for analyses. Methylene chloride is used in refrigeration, aerosol propellants, paint stripping, urethane foam-blowing agents, adhesive, and food extractants. Methylene chloride is used principally as a solvent in paintremovers. It is also used as an aerosol propellant, processingsolvent in the manufacture of steroids, antibiotics, vitamins,and tablet coatings; as a degreasing agent; in electronicsmanufacturing; and as a urethane foamblowing agent.Methylenechloride is also used in metal cleaning, as a solvent in theproduction of polycarbonate resins and triacetate fibers, in filmprocessing, ininkformulations, and as anextraction solvent forspice oleoresins, caffeine, and hops. It was once registered foruse in the United States as an insecticide for commodityfumigation of strawberries, citrus fruits, and a variety of grains.
Methylene chloride has been used as a blowing agent forfoams and as a solvent for many applications, includingcoating photographic films, pharmaceuticals, aerosol formulations,and to a large extent in paint stripping formulations. Itis used as a solvent in a number of extraction processes,where its high volatility is desirable. It has high solvent powerfor cellulose esters, fats, oils, resins, and rubber, and is morewater soluble than most other chlorinated solvents. Formulationsfor paint stripping may contain other solvents as well asmethylene chloride and are frequently found outside theworkplace. These formulations often contain other ingredientsthat retard evaporation and in the process increase thelikelihood of skin irritation.
Dichloromethane was used as an anesthetic gas but is nolonger used because of the narrow therapeutic index.

Ethylene Glycol

Mainly used in the production of polyester resins, alkyd resins, plasticizers, antifreezes, and also used in cosmetics and explosives; used as analytical reagents, chromatographic analysis reagents and capacitor media; ethylene glycol is the fungicide tebuconazole and moxa The intermediate of the spirit. Gas chromatographic stationary liquid (maximum use temperature 50℃, solvent is chloroform), separation and analysis of low-boiling oxygen-containing compounds, amine compounds, nitrogen or oxygen heterocyclic compounds. Determination of calcium oxide in cement, solvents, antifreeze, manufacture of polyester resins, plasticizers, cosmetics, explosives, cold-resistant lubricants, surfactants, varnishes, dyes, inks, etc., organic synthesis.

Propylene Glycol

Propylene glycol has good solubility and less toxicity and irritation, and is widely used as solvents, extraction solvents and preservatives for injections (eg. intramuscular injections, intravenous injections) and non-injectable pharmaceutical preparations (such as oral liquid, ophthalmic preparations, otic preparations, dental preparations, rectovaginal preparations, transdermal preparations, etc.). It is better than glycerol solvent and can dissolve many substances such as corticosteroids (sex hormone), chloramphenicol, sulfonamides, barbiturate, reserpine, quinidine, corticosterone acetate, tetrahydropalmatine sulfate, mechlorethamine hydrochloride, vitamin A, vitamin D, many volatile oils, most of the alkaloids and many local anesthetics. Propylene glycol is similar to ethanol when used as a bacteriostatic agent, and its efficacy to inhibit mold is similar to glycerin and is slightly lower than that of ethanol. Propylene glycol is commonly used as a plasticizer for the aqueous film coating materials. Its mixture with equal amounts of water can delay the hydrolysis of certain drugs, and increase the stability of the preparation product. It is used as an antimicrobial preservative in 15% to 30% propylene glycol solution and semi-solid formulation, as humectants in about 15% propylene glycol topical formulation, and as solvent and co-solvent in 10% to 30% propylene glycol aerosol solvent, 10% to 25 % propylene glycol oral solution, 10% to 60% injectable formulation and 5% to 80% topical formulation.

Butyl Acetate

N-Butyl acetate, also known as butyl ethanoate, is an ester which is a colorless flammable liquid at room temperature. Butyl acetate is found in many types of fruit, where along with other chemicals it imparts characteristic flavors and has a sweet smell of banana or apple. It is used as a synthetic fruit flavoring in foods such as candy, ice cream, cheeses, and baked goods. Butyl acetate is often used as a high-boiling solvent of moderate polarity.The other three isomers of butyl acetate are: isobutyl acetate, tert-butyl acetate, and sec-butyl acetate.
