In this video, Justin from the Institute of Human Anatomy discusses the various structures ethanol interacts with as it journeys through the human body after consumption.

To name a few, one the most critical parts of why it is forbidden to consume alcohol in Islam is that it causes Euphoria and hangover as a side-effect. People who consume in this state would not be able to think independently, which may lead to unfortunate events in some cases. See video minutes 16:20 and 23:20, as explained by Justin.
Other effects are weight gain, making a bad decision, and others, which you may find in this video. Literally, for Halal, any intake that harms the body is Haram or forbidden, be it short-term or long-term.
For alcohol cleansing, the use of clean water is adequate to make glasses or bottles Halal again—as long as traces of odor, color, and taste are no longer traceable. This is because ethanol or alcohol has water-soluble properties.
