VodKa

5 weird uses for Vodka... it's not just for martinis =)

1. Shine your fixtures- Moisten a soft, clean cloth with vodka, then apply a little elbow grease.
2. Preserve your flowers- Add a few drops of vodka and a teaspoon of sugar to the water in your flower vase. It should help keep your flowers fresh longer. Change out the mixture with fresh ingredients daily.
3. Lavender tincture- Fill a clean glass jar with fresh lavender flowers, then top off with vodka. Seal the lid tightly and place in the sun for three days (same idea as making sun tea!).
Strain the resulting liquid through a coffee filter, and poof! You have a homemade tincture to rub into aches and pains. You can pour into smaller bottles, decorate them and give them as unique gifts.
4. Got a toothache? Your first priority should be to see a dentist. But sometimes you can't get an appointment right away, or the professionals tell you it will just have to heal on its own.
In that case, try swishing a shot of vodka over the affected area. It can help disinfect, and should numb some of the pain in your gums. Not a good idea right before work..
5. Treat poison Ivy- To avoid the uncomfortable reaction, immediately pour vodka on skin that has come into contact with poison ivy, and the alcohol will wash away the itchy culprit, urushiol oil. Some have said that the vodka needs to be at least 100 proof to work.
