    Exclamation The many uses of vodka..

    Advertisements
    Other than this


    Aside from being a fantastic drink, vodka has many uses which you may not have known about. Since vodka is one of the world's most popular drinks, many of us have a bottle handy in the home. And since its typically filtered and pure, it makes a handy liquid to have around.

    Here are a few uses:

    1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka. The solvent dissolves adhesive
    2. To clean the caulking around bathtubs and showers, fill a trigger-spray bottle with vodka, spray the caulking, let set five minutes and wash clean. The alcohol in the vodka kills mold and mildew.
    3. Clean jewelry. Soak the jewelry in vodka for five minutes, then rinse, and dry.
    4. Clean lipstick from clothing. Rub the stain with vodka, then throw into your regular wash.
    5. Remove the glue left behind by a bumper sticker. Rub the glue with a soft, clean cloth soaked with vodka
    6. 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.
    7. Spray vodka on vomit stains, scrub with a brush, then blot dry.
    8. Using a cotton ball, apply vodka to your face as an astringent to cleanse the skin and tighten pores.
    9. Add a jigger of vodka to a 12-ounce bottle of shampoo. The alcohol cleanses the scalp, removes toxins from hair, and stimulates the growth of healthy hair.
    10. Fill a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle and spray bees or wasps to kill them.
    11. Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water in a Ziplock freezer bag and freeze for a slushy, refreshable ice pack for aches, pain or black eyes.
    12. 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.
    13. To relieve a fever, use a washcloth to rub vodka on your chest and back as a liniment.
    14. To cure foot odor, wash your feet with vodka.
    15. vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting.
    16. Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove the urushiol oil from your skin.
    17. Swish a shot of vodka over an aching tooth. Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain.
    18. Soothe a sore throat. Add a tablespoon of vodka to glass of warm water and gargle. The alcohol helps numb the sore throat.
    19. Eliminate swimer's ear. If you don't have rubbing alcohol, fill an eardropper with vodka, and squeeze it into the affected ear, then let it drain out

    this list reminds me of the episode of mythbusters where they did all sorts of things with vodka. one of them was if you put cheap vodka through a brita water filter something like six times, it will taste just like top shelf vodka. the only other one i remember was that it makes a really good mouthwash (mixed with some other stuff that i can't remember). try explaining that one to the cop that pulls you over!

    I have totally done this at my parties When someone vomits, I reach for the vodka-especially on the carpet! it takes the smell out immediately! I figured it out by accident, of course, but it sure does work.

    Now to try the others!

    Thanks for sharing!

    If I start going through that much vodka, I think my DH will put me in rehab!

    And on a side note:Loretta, I want to come to one of your parties. People puking on the carpet? Mine NEVER get that fun!
