The power of Beer

Beer, long known as an excellent lubricant… of the mouth and mind (or so you believe at the time). However, there are a number of other interesting uses that have come to light on Tiptheplanet recently.

Hair

Put some life back into flat hair with some flat beer. Before you get into the shower, mix 3 tablespoons beer in 1/2 cup warm water. After you shampoo your hair, rub in the solution, let it set for a couple of minutes, then rinse it off. We don’t vouch for not smelling like a pub however.

Meat

Who needs powdered meat tenderizer when you have some in a can? You guessed it: Beer makes a great tenderizer for tough, inexpensive cuts of meat. Pour a can over the meat, and let it soak in for about an hour before cooking. Even better, marinate it overnight in the fridge or put the beer in your slow cooker with the meat.

Polish your jewels!

Get the shine back in your solid gold (i.e., minus any gemstones) rings and other jewelry by pouring a bit of beer (not dark ale!) onto a soft cloth and rubbing it gently over the piece. Use a clean second cloth or towel to dry.

Clean wood furniture

Have you got some beer that’s old or went flat? Use it to clean wooden furniture. Just wipe it on with a soft cloth, and then off with another dry cloth.

Make a trap for slugs and snails

Like some people, some garden pests find beer irresistible — especially slugs and snails. If you’re having problems with these slimy invaders, bury a container, such as a clean, empty juice container cut length-wise in half, in the area where you’ve seen the pests, pour in about half a can of warm, leftover beer, and leave it overnight. You’re likely to find a horde of them, drunk and drowned, the next morning.

Remove coffee or tea stains from rugs

Getting that coffee or tea stain out your rug may seem impossible, but you can literally lift it out by pouring a bit of beer right on top. Rub the beer lightly into the material, and the stain should disappear. You may have to repeat the process a couple of times to remove all traces of the stain. (Please note that we are not liable for damage with this one!)
