    VODKA. . . .Who knew!!!!
    1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage withvodka. 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. 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, and 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 and spray bees or wasps to kill them.
    9. Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water in a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze for a slushy, refreshable 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 relieve a fever, use a washcloth to rub vodka on your chest and back as a liniment.
    12. To cure foot odor, wash your feet with vodka.
    13 Vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting.
    14. Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove the urushiol oil from your skin.
    15. Swish a shot of vodka over an aching tooth. Allow your gums to absorb
    some of the alcohol to numb the pain.

    And silly me. I've only been drinking the stuff!!!

    That is just a waste of good vodka. Isopropyl will do all that stuff and it is a dollar at Dollar General.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    Mythbusters did a show on this stuff recently. A lot of it was busted.

    HOWEVER, vodka really is great for herbal tinctures. I keep a large bottle of very cheap stuff on hand for working with medicinal herbs.

    Easy recipe for a cooling spray (at home use only, not for the car for obvious reasons)
    1 part cheap ass vodka
    1 part tap water
    a couple drops of either mint essential oil (any type) or mint extract

    mix in a spray bottle. Spray on skin, avoiding eyes. The alcohol evaporates first for an immediate cooling effect, the water stays around slightly longer, and the mint leave a refreshing cooling sensation and a slightly minty scent. If you're going to use it strictly on your feet, you can add a couple of drops of tea tree oil (available at walmart.) The tea tree oil is a very strong natural antiseptic and kills funky foot odor. If anyone is interested, I can give a recipe for a shoe powder that works incredibly well at neutralizing even summer boot funk.



    I know, who would have thought that I'd be into

    Do you how many times I've heard the old 'it's for medicinal purposes' line? Hey, it's your story, tell it however you want.

    Nope, if I'm going to drink something, I'm going to taste it. And hell, with the stuff I keep for herbals, there's not much of a chance of me drinking it. At less than $6 for 750ml, it's not even bottom shelf, it's more like behind the shelf... lol

    You can also soak diamonds/crystals in vodka to clean them or use it to clean glass. Vodka mixed with liquid dish soap and water can be used to kill weeds, too.

    Oh and light beer is good for cleaning solid gold jewelry also.
