For those who wonder what else you can do with Vodka...

Saw this on the internet the other day, everyone knows the internet is so true. My question is how do people think of trying this or coming with the idea "hey let's try vodka on...."; reminds me of college stories (i.e. Dev)

Vodka can be used to:

1. To remove a bandage painlessly, saturate the bandage with vodka. The solvent dissolves adhesive
2. To clean the caulking around bathtubs and showers, fill atrigger-spray bottle with vodka, spray the caulking, let set five minutes and wash clean. The alcohol in the vodka kills mold and mildew
3. To clean your eyeglasses, simply wipe the lenses with a soft, cleancloth dampened with vodka. The alcohol in the vodka cleans the glass andkills germs.
4. Prolong the life of razors by filling a cup with vodka and lettingyour safety razor blade soak in the alcohol after shaving. The vodka disinfects the blade and prevents rusting.
5. Spray vodka on vomit 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 and spray bees or wasps to kill them.
9. Pour one-half cup vodka and one-half cup water in a Ziploc freezer bag and freeze for a ice pack for aches, pain or black eyes.
10. Fill a clean, used mayonnaise jar with freshly packed lavenderflowers, fill the jar with vodka, seal the lid tightly and set in thesun for three days. Strain liquid through a coffee filter, then applythe tincture to aches and pains.
11. To relieve a fever, use a washcloth to rub vodka on your chest andback as a liniment.
12. To cure foot odor, 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 and Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain.

Anyone else know of uses for Vodka or has a crazy story of how they used a unlikely substance to cure something or clean with???
