(VIDEO below)

There's a list of 10 interesting ways to make that bottle of vinegar work for you.

  • Or what about dying flowers? You can easily revive them with this household product.

10. Eyeglass Cleaner - Cleaning your glasses perfectly

 Uses For Vodka  - You may have heard of 'beer goggles' but did you know you can use vodka to clean your glasses? Just pour a dab onto a clean cloth, and use it to wipe down your lenses. It does a great job removing any grease and smudges.

Clothing Deodorizer
If you need to refresh some clothing but don't have the time to launder it, you can use some vodka. In a spray bottle, mix one part vodka with one part water. Spray the garment lightly. The best part is it doesn't leave a scent.

Rust Remover
If you have some rust accumulating on an antique key or hardware, don't fret. Instead turn to the vodka bottle! Let the items soak in vodka overnight, and the liquid breaks down the rust.

Poison Ivy Helper
Let's face it; poison ivy isn't fun. It turns out that urushiol - the chemical produced by poison ivy that makes you break out - is alcohol-soluble. Just wipe a little vodka on the affected skin soon after the exposure and it will not only soothe, but help you recover quicker.
Bug Spray 
Vodka, water and anise to make a spray to repel pesky bugs. The combination of the scent and flavor is enough to deter most creepy crawlies.
