OK. I've been on a green kick recently, so lets keep it going! I've mainly been focusing on tech and cool gadety things, but there's another side to living Green. Reusing items or using current items for more than one purpose. So, lets focus on something simple to start with. Vodka.
10. Spit-Shine Your Knobs and Things
A very easy way to make your bathroom fixtures, mirros, porcelain, etc shine like new is to simply moisten a towel with a bit of vodka and rub it down. That's it.
9. Shake off the Scent
Yep, you read that right. Are you clothes a bit.... gamey? Try spritzing them with vodka then hang in a very well ventilated area. The vodka will kill off the offending bacteria and is scentless when dry.
8. Stop the Itch of Poison Ivy
What's worse than being out at a picnic and accidentially brushing up against poison ivy? Well... OK, there is THAT. However, vodka is a very strong cleanig agent and will easily take care of the Poison Ivy oils that cause the itching rash. So, there's ALWAYS a reason to take vodka on a picnic right?
7. Help Relieve the Pain of Jellyfish Without Having to Relieve Yourself
Sweet! Now you don't have to have that story about how you had to get someone to relieve themselves on various parts of your body because you wanted to go swimming with that blob of goo. Yep, just pour on the vodka and no more "This one time, in Aculpoco..." sotries!
6. Shoo-Fly Treatment
Don't like mosquitos, biting flies, gnats, etc.? Well, just spritz yourself with some vodka! Besides of being known as the best vodka shooter in the area, you'll also keep yourself free of those annoying little buggers that we all hate.
5. Flower Power
OK, so you need a little bit more than JUST vodka for this one. Daily treatments of a few drops of vodka and a spoonful of sugar will keep your cut flowers alive longer than it takes your boyfriend to knock over the vase.
4. Punch Up Your Do
OK, who knew that a shot of vodka in the shower(ok 12 oz of shampoo) can make your hair healthier and shinier? I know I didn't , but apparently this works very well.
3. Banish Mold
This one should be fairly obvious after the clothes de-stink spray. However, vodka is an excellent destroyer of mold as well as bacteria. Double wammy!
2. Create a Tincture
All you naturalists out there who know just what herbs and flowers can do, just drop some in a jar, top off with vodka, and place in the Sun to warm and diffuse the oils for three days. Strain through a filter(coffee, etc), and you now have your very own ticture!
1. Sooth A Toothache
Well, other than the immediate "Sweet! How many shots?" this is actually kind of interesting. Swish warm vodka around in your mouth. The vodka will once again kill the bacteria, and the anelgesic properties of vodka will aslo numb the area.
