A few more uses for vodka altho seems to me it may be a waste!


What You Can Do With Vodka:

1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the
bandage with vodka. The solvent dissolves the

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. To clean your eyeglasses, simply wipe the lenses
with a soft, clean cloth dampened with vodka. The
alcohol in the vodka cleans the glass and kills germs.

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 vomit stains, scrub with a brush,
then blot dry.

6. Using a cotton ball, apply vodka to your face as an
astringent to cleanse the skin and tighten pores.

7. 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.

8. Fill a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle with vodka
and spray bees or wasps to kill them.

9. Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water in a
Ziplock freezer bag, and freeze for a slushy,
refreezable 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. Make your own mouthwash by mixing nine tablespoons
powered cinnamon with one cup vodka. Seal in an
airtight container for two weeks. Strain through a
coffee filter. Mix with warm water and rinse your
mouth. Don't swallow.

12. Using a q-tip, apply vodka to a cold sore to help it dry out.

13. If a blister opens, pour vodka over the raw skin as a
local anesthetic that also disinfects the exposed dermis.

14. To treat dandruff, mix one cup vodka with two teaspoons
crushed rosemary, let sit for two days, strain through a
coffee filter and massage into your scalp and let dry.

15. To treat an earache put a few drops of vodka in your ear.
Let set for a few minutes. Then drain. The vodka will
kill the bacteria that is causing pain in your ear.

16. To relieve a fever, use a washcloth to rub vodka on your
chest and back as a liniment.

17. To cure foot odor, wash your feet with vodka.

18. Vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting.

19. To remove cigarette smoke in your home or office mix
one part vodka and three parts water and spray the
clothing, then launder and let dry.

20. Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to
remove the urushiol oil from your skin.

21. Swish a shot of vodka over an aching tooth. Allow
your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb
the pain.

After reading this, can you believe that some people drink the stuff?

IMHO there should be a #22----goes good with orange juice or should it be #1 and everything else moved down a notch.

Hi All,
What a Waste...........
Best use I've found for good Vodka is to keep it
in the freezer.
Pour a double, lift it for a Toast. Drink it, straight up, out of the freezer, ice cold.
I like Thors Hammer, from Sweden. But that's just a persaonal preference.
'Til later.

You can also pour trails of cheap 100-proof vodka along your the rug of your college dorm, light them, and have "vodka races". Don't ask me how I know this....... Another use is to steep Ginseng root in vodka and use it as a tonic for headaches, fever, etc. A friend who married a Korean woman woman had bottles of this concoction around that his wife had made, and it works quite well--just don't drink too much!
