Vodka isn’t just for drinking anymore!
It can actually be used around the house to help make cleaning a little easier. It is cheap and it’s a good solvent, much like lemon juice. Vodka is also non-toxic when used as a cleaning agent.
Here is our top 10 list of things you can clean using bottom-shelf vodka:
1.) Save yourself money by spritzing your “dry clean only” garments with a 50/50 vodka-water dilution between dry cleaning to remove odors. Since vodka has no smell once it dries, you won’t go into work smelling like a brewery.
2.) Clean your spectacles. Vodka is also a great glass cleaner, but it is NOT for use on coated lens.
3.) Get up that sticky stuff! Got sticker residue on your favorite frame? Maybe the kids have concocted some science experiment in their bedroom making everything sticky. Whatever the case, pull out the vodka!
4.) Keep flowers lasting longer than ever by adding one tablespoon vodka, one tablespoon sugar and then fill the vase with water. The vodka kills bacteria that will form in the vase and sugar gives the flowers nutrients.
5.) Got smelly feet? Use straight vodka as a foot soak. It eliminates odors, even the worst stinky feet!
6.) In a pinch for a quick hand sanitizer? Spritz some vodka on your hands and rub them together. Then, spritz your mouth because, hey, that needs santizing, too! 😉
7.) Vodka can also be used as an anesthetic and disinfectant by helping achey teeth, open blisters, cold sores and minor wounds.
8.) Get those diamonds sparkling! Use straight vodka to clean your diamonds, emeralds and other crystallized gemstones. Put vodka in a small bowl, add jewelry and let sit for 5 minutes. Dry your pieces then watch them shine.
9.) Fight oil build-up in your hair by adding an ounce of vodka to your shampoo bottle. Since it is odorless, you won’t smell like a bar after you get out of the shower.
10.) Kill weeds by adding one ounce vodka, a few drops of dishwashing soap and two cups water to a spray bottle.
