I don’t know about you, but when I think about beer, I usually just think about cooking with it or drinking it. But beer is actually really versatile and I think you’ll be really surprised to learn all of the things you can do with beer.


1

Wash Your Hair

 

 

I’ve never tried this, but my mom swears by it. If you want hair that’s got a nice shine and is full of volume, instead of conditioning, use beer.  Beer is good for your hair because it has a protein that strengthens your hair. And not only that, beer also has a low pH and is a mild astringent and that means it’ll help keep your hair clean.

 

2

Sleep Aid

 

 

You might be thinking this is a no brainer because everyone knows if you drink enough beer, you’ll pass out. But get this, you don’t have to drink beer for it to help as a sleep aid. When you’re washing your sheets and pillowcases, pour some beer into the washer. The smell alone of beer acts as a sedative.

 

3

Slugicide

 

 

You’ll definitely want to save this tip for when spring rolls around! If your garden is under attack from slugs and snails, pour beer into a shallow dish and leave it out overnight. Slugs are attracted to beer, just like humans.

 

4

Restore Beauty to Furniture

 

 

Flat beer does a really great job of restoring shine to wood furniture. But you need to wait until the beer is completely flat for it to work properly. Put a little on a towel and wipe down your furniture. That’s it.

 

5

Polish Metal

 

 

Is your kitchen faucet looking dull? You can polish it with beer! Beer helps remove tarnish, so pour a little beer on a cleaning rag and polish away.
