14 Uses for Vodka
Now this, some will say is a travesty. Vodka is to be drunk and enjoyed. Others (like me) will say that they're glad they don't drink the stuff. If it does all this, what on earth is it doing to the stomach?! Take your pick, but you may save yourself a couple of quid on a product or learn how the big V can be even more indispensable around the house!
1 - To remove a bandage painlessly; saturate the dressing with Vodka. It dissolves adhesive.
2 - Clean the caulking around the bathtub; fill a trigger-spray bottle with Vodka, spray the caulking, let set 5 minutes then wash clean. It kills mold and mildew.
3 - Clean your specs; wipe with a cloth moistened in Vodka. Cleans glass to a shine and kills germs. Use on household glass too.
4 - Prolong the life of razors by filling a cup with Vodka and letting your safety razor blade
soak in the alcohol after shaving. The Vodka disinfects the blade and prevents rusting.
5 - Spray Vodka on wine stains; scrub with a nail/scrubbing brush and then blot dry.
6 - Using a cotton wool ball, apply as an astringent to your skin. It cleanses and tightens pores.
7 - Add a shot of Vodka to a bottle of shampoo; The alcohol cleanses the scalp,removes toxins from hair, and stimulates the growth of healthy hair.
8 - Fill a trigger-spray bottle with Vodka; and spray Bees or Wasps to kill them. Bearing in mind that if you kill a Bee in any way you will burn in hell for eternity, but crack on with the Wasps.
9 - Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water into a Ziploc freezer bag; and freeze for a slushy, refreshing ice pack for aches, pain or black eyes.
10 - Fill a clean, used mayonnaise jar with freshly packed Lavender flowers, fill the jar with vodka, seal the lid tightly and set in the sun for three days. Strain liquid through a coffee filter,
then apply the tincture to aches and pains.
11 - To cure foot odour; wash your feet with Vodka.
12 - Vodka will disinfect and alleviate Jelly Fish stings and Poison Ivy.
13 - Swish a shot of Vodka over an aching tooth; Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain. And I don't suppose swallowing the rest would do you any harm if you're in agony - just don't drive afterwards!
14 - In really low temperatures, top up your windscreen washer bottle with Vodka and there's no way your bottle, or it's contents will freeze.
Well I think we've all learned something new today, haven't we?! I'm going to give several of these a go very soon indeed and I will report back.
