Glass Cleaning
You wouldn’t believe it, but the secret ingredient to the best DIY glass sprays is actually high-proof alcohol! Simply combine a cup of vodka (everclear or white rum works fine too) with 1/4 cup vinegar, and ½ teaspoon of liquid soap. Who would’ve thought?

It gets foul odors out of towels
As we move into a humid summer, you might be noticing that your towels are smelling less than pristine. To combat this, simply add 1/3 cup of vodka into your washing machine along with your preferred detergent. After the tub fills up, let the towels soak for an hour, then re-start the machine. It doesn’t get easier than that!

It soothes poison ivy reactions
There’s nothing worse than having your nice hike in the woods ruined by some nasty poison ivy. If this happens to you, act quick and pour some vodka on the reaction as soon as possible. By doing this, you can target the effect so that you might just have a fighting chance against those itchy welts and lesions.

My 4 year old niece was talking about poison ivy to me yesterday. I don't know where she's heard of it from, possibly American TV shows or something, because we don't have it here. She wanted to know why it was called poison ivy, and then we pretended that there was poison ivy around that we had to avoid stepping on. I don't think I'll pass on the tidbit about the vodka though. ;)

Oi, some people just do not pay attention.

Being allergic to the pollen would suck, that would be so much harder to avoid. :/
