The Power of Vodka

I received this email forward many years ago.  Props to whoever wrote this.

* To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka.  The solvent dissolves the adhesive.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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.

* Spray vodka on vomit stains, scrub with a brush, then blot dry.

* Using a cotton ball, apply vodka to your face as an astringent to cleanse the skin and tighten pores.

* 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.

* Fill a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle and spray bees or wasps to kill them.

* Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water in a Ziplock freezer bag, and freeze for a slushy, refreshable ice pack for aches, pain, or black eyes.

* 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.

* Make your own mouthwash by mixing nine tablespoons powered cinnamon with one cup vodka. Seal in an airtight container for two weeks.  Strain through a coffee filter. Mix with warm water and rinse your mouth.  Don't swallow.

* Using a q-tip, apply vodka to a cold sore to help it dry-out.

* If a blister opens, pour vodka over the raw skin as a local anesthetic that also disinfects the exposed dermis.

* To treat dandruff, mix one cup vodka with two teaspoons crushed rosemary let sit for two days, strain through a coffee filter and massage into your scalp and let dry.

* To treat an earache put a few drops of vodka in your ear. Let set for a few minutes. Then drain.. The vodka will kill the bacteria that is causing pain in your ear.

* To relieve a fever, use a washcloth to rub vodka on your chest and back as a liniment.

* To cure foot odor, wash your feet with vodka.

* Vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting.

* Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove the urushiol oil from your skin.

* Swish a shot of vodka over an aching tooth. Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain.

OK my personal favorite....
*  If all else fails, just turn the bottle up and drink it.
