And to think you have only been drinking it - Just look at all the things you can do with Vodka. 1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka. 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 16 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 and pains, 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 linament. 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!! Do you know of any other uses?

I hate the taste of vodka but I love the sound of number 8! I am highly allergic to wasps and one sting could kill me, so I have to carry an epipen with me around the Summer wasp season, now I think I will carry a spray of vodka too, so I can annihilate the bu**ers, great use indeed thank you my friend. The wasps won't know what hit them and it's far better than wasp killer which has that harmful spray you shouldn't breath and it's vodka is more environmentally friendly than those cfc sprays isn't it!

Then it will be very usefor for you wolfie, with your allergy to wasps - and better for the environment too, instead of those harmful sprays.

I quite like a vodka now and again, so I usually have some in the house. I guess I might try it on a few of these things, but it would work out to be an expensive cleaning aid!! Thanks gabs.

LOL. I like the list but I prefer drinking it too. It's good to know that vodka will work when I'm out of something else. I am especially relieved to see an alternative for #13 GRIN. I hate to say it, but I could really see a good joke coming out of this list, especially if someone had to work after using several of these fixes. :)

It's my favourite drink too! It would work out to be an expensive cleaning aid though. I wonder what it's doing to our insides? Makes you wonder, huh? Ah well . . . Thanks paidreader.
