Most of us only know one use for vodka, drinking it up! And anyway, why would you want to do anything else with vodka than drinking it? You will be surprised to find out that vodka is a less toxic and easy solution for some of the common tasks we have.
What you should know is that there are actually quite a number of uses for vodka and useful ones for that matter. So next time you find yourself with a bottle of vodka, before downing all of it, before you invite your friends and serve them cocktails, save some, as it will come in handy for some of the common problems you face.
Ease A Toothache
If you have ever suffered one before, then you understand how excruciating a toothache can be. With this cold weather, they tend to be more frequent with people who have problematic teeth and the worst thing ever is having a toothache late at night or at a time when visiting a dentist is next to impossible. In case a toothache attacks you during such a time, all you need to do is swish a shot of vodka over the affected area and voila! It will disappear as fast as it came. Vodka not only disinfects but it also numbs the pain.
Vodka can help you find love when taking shots with a total stranger in the club and it can still make your love blossom and bloom. Adding vodka and a teaspoon of sugar to the water in your vase helps the flowers stay fresh for longer. See, vodka can come through for you and your love in a pretty beautiful way.
Every home at one point in time gets occasional visits from insects. Since most insecticides in the market have strong odors (even those labeled odorless have a scent), vodka can be a perfect solution for killing the bugs. Pour a little of the spirit in a spray bottle and squirt on the insects and watch them collapse and die.
Mould spreads easily and is disgusting to see. Instead of buying harsh chemicals for cleaning, fill a spray bottle with vodka, spray the spirit on the mouldy areas, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then scrub away with an old toothbrush
Shine Your Fixtures
With time, fixtures tend to lose their sheen and start appearing dull and old. To get them shiny and sparkly, all you need to do is moisten a soft cloth with vodka and apply a little grease. Rub and wipe the fixtures with the cloth and they will be shiny in no time
