Amazing Uses for Beer and Vodka
Excessive consumption of alcoholic drinks can be hazardous to one’s health. But looking on the bright side, beer and vodka do have some pretty amazing uses! Here's some suggestions from gomestic:
1. Clean Jewelery
Put a few drops of vodka onto a soft cloth and wipe your jewelery gently. You can also dunk your diamond ring into a small glass of vodka for 2 minutes and wipe it dry until you can see the sparkle. However, you can only do this for jewelery with crystallized gemstones like diamond and emerald. Otherwise the alcohol will damage the gemstone. For gold jewelery minus gemstones, you can pour some beer onto a soft cloth and wipe it gently to dry. Beer is good for polishing solid gold to get the gold shine.
2. Disinfectant Wash
To sanitize your clothes, just put a few drops of vodka into some warm water, mixed together with some detergent. Soak your clothes in the solution for half an hour. Then, wash the clothes normally in water.
3. Clean Bathroom
Since vodka also contains alcohol, it can be used to clean up and sanitize your bathroom tub and washing basin. Just pour some vodka over your washing basin and bath tub and wait for several minutes before you scrub them with a brush. This is an easy way to remove mold and mildew.
4. Relieve Toothache
Soak a cotton wool with some vodka and dry the excess liquid. Put the cotton wool onto the affected area and bite through the said cotton wool to temporarily relieve the pain.
5. Kill Weeds
Put about 30ml of vodka, a cup of plain water and a few drops of liquid dish soap and mix the solution together. Put the solution into a spray bottle. Just spray onto the weeds in your garden or yard when there is sunlight. This is important so that the solution can react in the heat of the sun to kill off the weeds.
