Vodka is the number one, best selling and most consumed, hard alcohol beverage in the world. People favor the spirit because it mixes well in cocktails and is widely available at a number of price points. Not only is it versatile in all the ways that it can be mixed and consumed, it can also be used in a variety of ways that don’t require any drinking. At it’s most basic form, vodka is mainly water and ethanol, which is produced by fermentation and then distilled. The distillation process removes any impurities or dilutions and leaves the alcohol in the vodka pure and ideal for doing a number of things.
One alternative vodka use is that it can be applied to a soft cloth and rubbed on eye or sun glasses to clean them. Gently rub the lenses until the dirt, smudges, and grease is gone and you’re done. Vodka is also perfect for cleaning shaving razors and preventing them from rusting. Simply pour some vodka in a cup and soak the razor blade in it, this will also disinfect the blades.
An age old, yet not widely known, secret for keeping cut flowers looking fresh for longer is to mix in a dash of the spirit with water in the vase. Flower bouquets will appear healthy for much longer, so long as you keep changing the water and vodka every few days. Also, to keep your skin and face looking fresh try using some vodka as an astringent. Apply it with a cotton ball onto your face to help reduce pores and clean up any acne or zits.
Another health and beauty use for vodka is that it can make dull hair appear shinier. When you shampoo add a few drops of vodka in with it and then wash and rinse as usual. When your hair dries you should notice that it looks healthier and shiny. Finally, vodka foot soaks can kill any bacteria on stinky feet and leave them smelling how they should be. The alcohol in the spirit is strong enough to kill the bacteria that are causing the smell, and if you don’t have time to soak feet you can also rub them down with vodka to clean them.
The above uses are just a few of the many ways that vodka can be utilized around the house and in beauty routines. If you have a bottle collecting dust, or the next time you happen to have one laying around unused, try using it in a non-traditional manner. Or, fix yourself a cocktail, relax, and cheers!
