Vodka has other applications, besides drinking it.

I have to admit, I have never drunk “VODKA,” the Russian national drink, but I knew of its “existence." I thought it was more like a "medicinal drink" that can make you forget your worries and at the same time kill your intestinal worms and other nasties in your body. However, surprise, surprise, VODKA has many other uses.

By passing this information on to you, I’m sure Vodka sales will skyrocket from today on. Gee, you are never too old to learn something new. If you don’t hear from me for a few weeks, you’ll know what I have been drinking. :-) - Werner

Tip of the Day.

1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka. The stuff dissolves adhesive. (If it can do this, just imagine what it will do to your stomach. :-) - Werner)

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 mould 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 wine 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 sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle with vodka and spray bees or wasps to kill them.

9 Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water into a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze for a slushy, refreshing ice pack for aches, pain or black eyes.

10. Fill a clean, used mayonnaise jar with freshly picked 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 liniment.

12. To cure foot odour, 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.

Vodka the universal cleaner and health drink.

My thought for today. - Werner

I studied your suggestions for the use of Vodka, but they don't come anywhere near as good as drinking it.

Its got me beat as to why anyone would try those other things anyway.

As one of your blog fans, I have printed out many of your postings and send them to friends that do not have a computer, and they say to you as well as me, thank you for the good reading. However, your latest posting about “Vodka” I have also printed out for myself, and is now attached to my kitchen cupboard, which now contains a bottle of Vodka – the problem solver.
