Alcohol and Invisibility

Alcohol doesn’t make you invisible

I simply couldn’t believe it when I was little and my grandfather told me that the air was full of bacteria, spores and other microorganisms. If they were there, why could I not even see them when I strained my eyes? Were they so small or transparent or both?
