Yes, this post is under the category of How To and I will tell you few ways in which you can use the yummy beer for some other purposes. I am just loving it for the reason that beer can be treated as something beyond alcohol for novices like me. I like this form of beer better than the other that makes you stoned. And, I think I should stop blabbering in my excitement and make way for some exciting ways that you can use beer.
• Fight Stains
I seriously didn’t know about this one. If you have a stain on a fabric that refuses to go, then using beer might be just the thing that you had been looking for. But, first you will have to color test the area by putting some on it and then leaving it to dry. If the result is all good, then you can go ahead with the entire stain.
• Take a Dip
This one is most surprising, for me at least. Next time when you wish to take a relaxing bath, then just add a can of dark beer in the water than adding salt. It will work as an excellent skin conditioner.
• Wash Your Hair
Just like being an excellent skin conditioner, beer is also an excellent material to rinse your hair with. First, shampoo and condition your hair as you do, but then pour a cup of beer into a glass and allow it to go flat and warm. After, you have shampooed and all, you can rinse your hair with beer, later rinsing the same with cold water thoroughly.
• Kill the Slugs
To do so, you have to bury an empty container in the area of your garden where you have seen the infestation. The container has to be buried in such a way that the top is at the same level as the ground. Now, pour left over beer in it. Slugs and snails will be drawn to it and wil eventually fall in it and drown.
• Put Out a Fire
I just couldn’t stop laughing atthis one, as I always though that alcohol increases the fire. But, I figured I was wrong, as I read that to put out a fire you can shake the bottle and unleash it on fire. And, fire will go out, owing to the presence of water and pressure. But, do not give it much importance over real fire extinguishers, as those big ones are seriously more effective.
Due to its less acidic nature you ca use it to tenderize meat. All you have to do is mix beer with some herbs and pour it in the holes that you made in the meat. Now, leave it the refrigerator for few hours.
If you have a can of beer that has gone stale, then you can use it to polish your wood furniture.
You could pour the left over beer in the garden, as yeast and other extracts in the beer are really good for the plants.
• Add in the batter
Next time you decide to bake a cake, add beer in the batter in place of baking powder. It will do the same and may be even better.
• BBQ Chicken
Insert the beer cans in the neck of the chicken and place the chicken on the BBQ. While it is being cooked, the beer will get heated up and will flavor the chicken.
