“The relationship between a Russian and a bottle of vodka is almost mystical.” Richard Owen
Maybe everyone does not have a bottle of vodka hanging around but there are many who do keep it in their bar. Now this alcohol can be put to other uses other than making cocktails. It would seem prudent to make use of it in as many ways as possible. You know I love multi-uses!
To this end I have compiled a list of recommended other uses for vodka. Some I would never think of, but are reasonable if one does think of what any alcohol can do.
Put it in a pie crust mixture in place of some of the ice water. When it bakes, the alcohol burns off and results in a really nice flaky crust.
To increase the life of cut flowers, add some drops of vodka to the water in the vase, plus a teaspoon of sugar every couple of days. It minimizes growth of bacteria.
If you wear glasses, it is a perfect lens cleaner. Because vodka has no scent you will not smell as if you had been doing some good time drinking.
This tip came from “Mary on Facebook”. As a little added treat for your guests, soak gummy bears in it. What a surprise!
Dip a Q-tip in vodka and apply it to a cold sore. It will dry out faster.
If you have run out of your facial astringent, substitute vodka. It will clean and constrict your pores in the same way.
For sticky, gooey tags soak a sponge in vodka and apply to the tag. After about a minute the tag will come right off.
Vodka can also be used as a stain remover. Wipe a little bit on the stain and watch it disappear.
For an odorless air freshener, mix one part vodka with three parts water in a small spray bottle. Spritz area and let dry.
There are probably many more uses for vodka that I have not covered and would be interesting to all readers. If you have any other uses, please leave a comment or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great weekend!
