9 Creative Ways to Use Beer Besides Just Drinking It
Everyone knows that beer is best enjoyed as a refreshing beverage. However, there are many ways to use beer, even the leftover flat kind, that go far beyond the world of drink. Beer is glorious for many reasons, but taste is only one of them.
Beer contains a lengthy list of natural ingredients such as hops, vitamin b, xanthohumol, and orthosilicic acid. These elements offer health benefits when you drink beer, but can enhance your life in other ways as well. Whether it be in the kitchen, around the house, in the garden, even in your bath, there are many uses for beer.
Beer lovers everywhere, rejoice! We’ve rounded up nine ways to use beer (besides, drinking it, of course). Now you have an excuse to incorporate beer into your everyday routine.
Add it to your Bath
Bathing in beer may sound like an odd idea at first, but think about it this way: drinking beer provides health benefits for the inside of your body, therefore it will do the same for your skin. Breweries around the world have already tried out this idea, one of them offering a beer bath for $298 a pop.
Distract the Bugs
According to Men’s Health, slugs love the smell of yeast in beer. If you bury a jar of leftover beer in your garden, the slugs will smell it, attempt to drink it, and fall right in. This isn’t the prettiest way to get rid of garden bugs, but it is sure to keep them from eating your dinner before you do.
Fertilize Your Garden
You’re not the only one who loves the taste of beer! Plants have the ability to quickly absorb the yeast and carbohydrates in beer, making it a suitable fertilizer for your beloved garden.
Soak Up Stains
Why take a trip to the drug store when your most reliable stain remover is in your fridge? According to Readers Digest, dabbling some beer onto a coffee stain will soak it right up. All you have to do it pour the beer onto the stained material and absorb the moisture with a wet paper towel or cloth.
