5 Things You Can Do With Beer Other Than Drinking It
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
