Five Things You Can Do With Beer Besides Drink It

The average adult in America drinks about 21 gallons of beer a year. Just to put that in perspective, we drink about 19 gallons of coffee a year. But, it's only Wednesday, ya drunk. So we've got a list of five other things you can do with beer, not that you ever would.

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. Also this makes a great excuse to drink with the wife around because you can tell her you're only drinking in order to clean her ring!

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. All the more reason to stock up to get rid of those troublesome pests!

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. That would be a major party foul.

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.

Cleanse Your Skin

 
 

The yeast and other ingredients in beer can actually EXFOLIATE your skin. The downside is, you smell like you're hammered. Well, maybe that's not a downside. Anyways, Cheers!
