7 Things You Can Do With Beer, Besides Drink It
I love beer and apparently so do a lot of you. The average adult in America drinks about 21 gallons of beer a year. Yes that’s a lot you drunk! But if you did not know there are other things you can use beer for other than drink it and make your date better looking.
Here are 7 alternative uses for beer:
#1.) Clean Jewelry. According to ModernMan.com, you can soak gold jewelry in light beer before you polish it. Apparently the acid in beer helps get it clean.
#2.) Kill Slugs, Snails, Fruit Flies, and Cockroaches. Slugs, snails, and cockroaches are attracted to the smell. Fruit flies are attracted to the glycerol, which is created by yeast when the beer’s fermenting.
#3.) Loosen Rusty Bolts and Screws. The carbonation in beer can supposedly help break down the rust. With that said if you have WD-40 in the garage, don’t waste your beer.
#4.) Clean Wood Furniture. Not any kind of beer works though. It has to be a darkish ale, and you have to let it go flat first. You’re supposed to rub it on the wood with a cloth, then use another cloth to dry it.It should help restore the color, and give the wood more of a polished look.
#5.) Cleanse Your Skin. The yeast and other ingredients in beer can actually exfoliate your skin. The downside is you smell like you’re hammered drunk at 9am.
#6) Marinade Meat The acidity in beer makes it a competent meat tenderizer. Jab a few holes in the meat, place it into a container or plastic bag, pour in the beer, and leave it overnight.
#7) Fertilize Soil Have a brown patch on your putting green? (That’s not a euphemism.) The acids in beer can ward off fungi and pests that kill grass. Also, if your house plants look sickly, the yeast and sugar in beer might help cultivate the soil; just make sure the beer’s flat.
There you go. Did We forget any? What do you use beer for other than drinking?
