15 Uses Of Alcohol You Did Not Know Before

Many of you don’t know it but Alcohol can actually be used for purposes other than damaging your liver and forgetting your problems (for the time being). It is a natural cleaner and finisher and it is even used in some industries for this purpose. But since you don’t have access to simple alcohol, we are going to tell you some neat tricks which you can use with other variants. This is especially for those guys who don’t like drinking too much and keep seeing much of it wasted at parties, etc. You can put the rejected booze in great use through these 15 innovative ways:

1. Cleaning Windows and Mirrors:

Pour vodka into a spray can and you can use it for removing the nasty strains splattered across your windows and mirrors. Very good end results.

2. Beer as Fertilizer

Beer without fizz can become a great fertilizer for flower pots. We all know what else is a good fertilizer.

3. Vodka as fabric refresher

Vodka has great assimilation and antiseptic properties. You can make a perfect recipe by adding a table-spoon of water and vinegar to two table spoons of vodka. Do try it on fabrics that aren’t washable.

4. Removing “storage smell”

Although some people even like that kind of smell, majority of us don’t and that smell can removed by using the same mixture of vodka as mentioned above.

5. Removal of Sticky labels

Sticky labels are a nuisance to deal with it as they don’t tend to come off completely. Enter le vodka and here you are label-less.

6. Cleaning Sunglasses

Dirt, sweat and sunscreen are permanently pasted on your sunglasses. You can get rid of them by…… of course. Just take a towel and rub it off.

7. Shining Chrome Fixtures

Chrome fixtures are also stuff that never tend to part with their grimy appearance. Don’t worry, Captain Vodka will make them go away. Charge!

8. Jellyfishes Sting

So it seems the similarity between alcohol and urine is becoming more and pronounced. Jellyfishes sting can also be made to go away by vodka/beer.

9. Jewelry Cleaning

Jewelry can be cleaned spot on by soaking it in gin.

10. Stains like Grapes, oranges and red wine

All of these stubborn stains can be made to go away with white wine.

11. Getting rid of dandruff

So, vodka is also a pesticide of sorts. Who would have though of that. Vodka can remove dandruff by using it with rosemary.

12. Against Poison Ivy exposure

There is Urushiol oil in poison ivy that causes itching and swelling. Applying vodka acts as a pacifier for the skin.

13. Onion odors

The strong smell of onion can be removed from kitchen ware by applying a little vodka with a piece of cloth

14. Grease stains

White wine can overcome strong stains like grease.

15. Pulling sticky tape, bandages
