Vodka! The cause of and answer to all of life's problems!

17 April 2009

Vodka is well-known for its acute falling-over qualities, and cheap vodka is similarly acclaimed for its ability to relieve Russian farmers of their eyesight. Is there nothing this wonder guzzle can't do? Seemingly not, especially if the cleaning fairies don't visit as often as they should.

Divine Caroline has compiled a list of 19 uses for vodka around the house. We doubt they're using the good stuff, more likely they've bought the Osinovskiy White Label brand that's £2.99 per gallon and can kill a horse on sight. The tips include:

  • Clean lipstick from clothing. Rub the stain with vodka, then throw into your regular wash.
  • Spray vodka on vomit stains, scrub with a brush, then blot dry.
  • 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.

Holy moly - great news for adulterers, the bulimic and the bald! Have you tried using vodka to right household wrongs? Aside from drinking away the pain of a trouble marriage, that is. Let us know your top tips, and we may just start a column dedicated to everyday domestic shortcuts and handy hints for housewives, because it's never been done before. Ever.
