Who Knew ??????

1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka The stuff 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 wine stains, scrub with a brush, and then blot dry.

and stimulates the growth of healthy hair. Straight vodka gets rid of nits too.

9 Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water into a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze for a slushy, refreshing 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.

The Good Stuff gets into the Glass.

The Cheap Stuff ... I mix some up with Apple Cider Vinegar and use it as an after-shave (astrigent).

And I could see see it being used to make a scented astrigent (Maybe Lemon or Orange Zest.).

But, I am using some Rum for that.

And..it is a really nice way of getting some of the Double Back sticky tape from between the scales you just contoured. Not all but many adhesives will lose their tackyness.

PS 190+ vodka is a great base for making your own aftershave. It leaches the aroma chemicals out of the natural ingredients.

And. With a bit of mineral oil in it it is a good aftershave drier and protectant when used as a razor dip. Wipe the length of your blade between your fingers after dipping it.

Wish they sold ethanol based rubbing alcohol in the US. Guess I could just buy some of that Kirkland brand vodka instead. Tongue
