No monopoly on common sense

I don't drink but if I did and had some vodka around the house, This Old House magazine suggests some other uses for it: Link
  • Erase Window Streaks - Use diluted spray
  • Shine Chrome - Soak in soft cloth & wipe fixtures
  • Deodorize Laundry - removes musty smells
  • Remove Rust from Screws - leave in for a few hours, wipe clean
  • Preserve Cut Flowers - it inhibits production of ethylene, which makes flowers wilt.
  • Remove Stains from Upholstery - takes out ink, grass, and some foods.
  • Kill Weeds - Mix 1 ounce of vodka, a few drops of liquid dish soap, and 2 cups of water in a spray bottle.
  • Clean Mold and Mildew - Spray on, let sit up to 30 minutes, scrub clean.
  • Soothe Aching Muscles - make a frozen pack with equal parts vodka and water.
  • Stop Odors - use diluted spritz insides of shoes and boots
