Other than knocking you out, vodka actually has other useful applications as well. You might want to use the cheap stuff for these daily usages though; preferably that bottle of nasty Absolut Vodka your cheapskate friend gave you during a house visit.
1. Oil-control Shampoo
To remove oil build-up in your sculp, add 2 tablespoons of vodka to your bottle of shampoo. And don’t worry about smelling like a vodka soaked whore because vodka is odourless.
2. Prolong Cut Flowers’ Lives
Add a few drops of vodka and a teaspoon of sugar to the water in your flower vase to make your flowers last longer. An alternative to this would be to drop a panadol into the vase.
3. Heal Core Sores
To rid yourself of that pesky cold sore around your lips (not to be confused with herpes), soak a piece of cotton wool with vodka and dab it around the sore areas to accelerate the healing process.
4. Soothe Jellyfish Stings
The waters in Sentosa are teeming with jellyfish. I know, because I have seen them floating along the shoreline. So in the event that someone actually got stung by a jellyfish, you can run down to the nearest bar and order a shot of vodka to pour over the victim’s affected area to alleviate his suffering a little bit while waiting for the paramedics to arrive. Be warned though, drinks of any kind, especially alcoholic drinks are exorbitantly expensive in Sentosa. Like daylight-robbery kind of expensive.
5. Remove Gluey Residue
Urgh I hate it when I peel off a sticky and a sticky substance is left behind which accumulates dirt and grime over time when not properly removed. To get that annoying stickiness off, grab a sponge, pump some washing detergent on it, add a wee bit of vodka and start scrubbing.
6. Minimize Pores
Brew a cup of green tea and add ¼ teaspoon of vodka to the drink. Dab a cotton pad into the liquid and wipe it all over your face to cleanse your pores and remove blackheads, repeat for good measure.
Or you know... you can just drink it and have a good time before blacking out and waking up in the morning to find yourself lying next to a goat, hoping to God that you did not do the unthinkable.
