5 Clever Ways of Using Beer

Aside from drinking, beer can also be used in a variety of ways. Though ingesting it is our favorite way of using it, we have compiled a few clever ways of using beer in our day-to-day lives. Read on and be prepared to use your favorite beverage to good use.

Stain removal
If you have accidentally spilled coffee onto your plush carpet, you can use beer to get rid of the stain. Beer is actually a great cleaning agent and can be used as an alternative to chemical products. Just pour some beer on the carpet and let it soak for a few minutes. Then, get a towel and dab up the wrenched stain. Wash it off with soap and water and the stain will automatically disappear.

Hair wash 
This may come as a bit of a shock but beer can also be used for your hair. As a matter of fact, it will leave your hair shinier and more voluminous. After the procedure, the smell of your hair may be comparable to a college party, but it’s worth it. Best of all, you can use any beer brand you want. If you have left over beer in the fridge, feel free to let your thirsty hair soak it in.

Fertilizer
Plants are in need of a drink too. Beer can be used as a fertilizer for your household plants. Beer contains sugar, which can help make your garden grow green and vast.

Beer bath
While enjoying your drink, feel free to let some flow into your bathtub. Like wine, beer also contains  antioxidants that will leave your skin looking and feeling great. Plus, you get to enjoy the bubbles and aroma soaking in your skin.

Fluffy batter
If you want fluffy pancakes for breakfast, try substituting water with beer. This will turn your pancakes into little breakfast pillows and will give it a distinctive flavor.  The yeast and the bubbles in the beer will make the pancakes thick and airy. Remember though that you’ll be using the beer for cooking. So, try not to drink too much of it.
