    To get the ball rolling, I have the following for you:

    New Uses For Vodka

    1. To remove a sticking plaster painlessly, saturate it with vodka. The alcohol dissolves the adhesive.

    2. To clean the tidemarks around bathtubs and showers, fill a trigger-spray bottle with vodka, spray the caulking, leave for five minutes and rinse away. The alcohol kills mold and mildew.

    3. To clean your eyeglasses, simply wipe the lenses with a soft, clean cloth dampened with vodka. The alcohol 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 it after shaving. This 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 your pores.

    7. Add a small amount of vodka to a twelve ounce bottle of shampoo. The alcohol cleanses the scalp, removes toxins from your hair and stimulates the growth of healthy new hair. Net vodka also kills nits.

    8. Fill a sixteen-ounce trigger-spray bottle with vodka and spray bees and wasps, if you wish to kill them.

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

    10. Fill an empty clean mayonnaise jar with freshly packed lavender flowers, top up with vodka, seal the lid tightly and set the jar into the sun for three days. Strain liquid through a coffee filter, then apply the tincture against allo manner of aches and pains.

    11. To relieve a fever, with a washcloth rub vodka on your chest and back as a liniment.

    12. Against foot odour wash your feet with vodka.

    13. Vodka disinfects and alleviates the pain of jellyfish stings.

    14. Pour vodka over an area affected with poison ivy to remove its irritating factor 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.
    Just to think that some people actually drink the stuff.
    What a waste!
