This email is informative as well as hilarious! I have always said: "A shot in a glass is better than a shot in the ass!" From Maxine(my aunt)

If you don't learn something new every day, you're not living

1. To remove a bandage painlessly
saturatethe bandage with vodka.
The stuff dissolves adhesive.

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 mold 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
Image removed by sender. 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 packed 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 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.
Allow your gums to absorb some of the alcohol to numb the pain.

And silly me!

  • In my opinion excessive use of alcohol is totally injurious for health. Therefore, if you are an addict drunkard than its better for you to start EDITED This will help you in controlling you daily drinking.

  • This has NOTHING to do with alcohol ABUSE. Being new to our community, you probably do not know your way around yet. This is the "Lighten and Brighten" section. Items posted here are required to be light-hearted, and funny. NOTHING is taken serious in this section. Unless the Original Poster requests it be.

    Thanks for visiting, Marks. Hope to get to know you and your back/neck issues better when you return!

    (Edit - on a side note, my dad [God rest his wonderful soul!] was an alcoholic. Back when he first started drinking - this would have been sometime during WW2 - the only vodka was Taaka; this he continued to drink until he went to the hospital in March. After he died, I took the 3/4 full half gallon bottle to my house because I remembered reading these helpful hints. My 12 year old had severe itching of his hands after some yard work... I had poured vodka on his hands and wet a towel with some and had him wrap his hands in the towel for about 10 minutes. WORKED LIKE A CHARM! So, I said all that to say - Alcohol use is not always a bad thing.....)

  • Thanks for your first hand account of one benefit of vodka, Jeaux. After reading yours, I revisited the original post, and indeed it looks like there are some other useful applications. And I thought it was only a joke! One can always learn.
