Vodka: more than meets the eye
Aside from drinking vodka there are other ways to use this liquid. Vodka’s anti-bacterial properties are what give it such potency in combating a lot of common ailments and household issues – from earaches to carpet stains. Grab yourself a bottle, and lets go
Laundry Freshener
Fill a small spray bottle with vodka and lightly spray clothes. The vodka smell goes away when the clothes dry completely. The vodka helps to remove any unwanted odors
Flower Preserver
Plants produce the ripening gas ethylene, which promotes maturation. Vodka stunts ethylene production and allows for flowers to stay fresher, longer. Spray flower stems with a 2:1 ratio mix of vodka and sugar. Repeat every few days.
Jelly Fish Bite Soother
Vodka helps to alleviate the pain and itch that come after a  nasty jelly fish bite. Bring along a 1:1 mixture of vodka and water in a spray bottle to the beach just in case of an attack
Stickiness Remover
Vodka works wonders on removing all that is gooey! From stickers on car surfaces to gum on the bottom of a shoe, a little vodka goes a long way
Computer Screen Cleaner
Using water to clean a computer screen often leaves behind distracting smears. Apply vodka to the screen and wipe away for a seamless and clear screen. Vodka is also great as a eye glass cleaner
Air Freshener
Mix equal parts water and vodka in a spray bottle and spray around the house. The vodka dissolves odors and the solution is completely odorless
Jewelry Cleaner
Let your jewelry sparkle and shine. Soak and lightly scrub them in some vodka to remove any impurities. Also clean your razor blades by soaking them in vodka. This trick will keep your blades clean and disinfected whilst extending the lifespan of your razor
Cold Sore Treatment
Vodka can help to reduce cold sore inflammation and redness by drying the affected area. Dip one end of a Q-tip into vodka and use it to dab sores
Shower Cleaner
Attack those moldy, dark crevices with a toothbrush and some vodka. Spray vodka onto moldy areas, let sit for 15 minutes, and then scrub away. The vodka kills the mold
Treat Ear Aches
Put a few drops of vodka into your ear. Let the alcohol sit in the ears for a few minutes each and then drain. The vodka kills bacteria that causes pain. Also by gargling with vodka the pain of toothache, soreness and inflammation is reduced
Stain Remover
Vodka effectively gets rid of ink, grass and lipstick stains. Dab stain with vodka and rub the stain away. Add the stained garment to the laundry afterwards for a more thorough clean
Fever Alleviation
Vodka works well as a liniment to reduce a fever, because it evaporates very quickly and can provide a cooling relief. Apply vodka to a soft cloth and place on your chest

  1. Great info Tanya. Good remedy if you survive the jelly fish bite. Have people survived a bite from jelly fish? Oh and add one more use: to make Real Vanilla (with clear Vodka though).

    Thanks for sharing this Tanya.

    • yes people survive a jelly fish bite, still the sting is not very pleasant. Good tip thanks Randall, I didn’t know that about vanilla:)
