As the holiday season draws to a close, you may find yourself with a rather large stock of excess beer. As someone who doesn’t drink beer, I often find myself pouring cans down the sink in a bid to make more room in my fridge, but this is a waste of perfectly useful beer! From beauty tips to bug traps, beer has numerous uses that you may never have thought of before.
For instance, did you know you can use a can of beer to make your lawn lusher and lovelier than every before? The carbohydrates found in beer are fantastic for the microbes found in the soil which eventually turn into matter for grass to munch on! You can also use beer to trap all sorts of bugs if they’re bothering you because they are attracted to the sweet sugars and fermentation. Or maybe they are drunks.
You can also use beer as a beauty product – as long as you don’t mind a bit of a beer smell lingering. You can use the hops and malt to create beautiful locks, as beer is full of proteins your hair craves. Or you can use beer as a face mask, as the yeast will help balance out the pH levels on your skin. If you’d like to keep the beer-y smell away from your face, you can always try a beer pedicure which will leave your soles soft and clean.
Last but not least, you can even use that pesky left-over beer around the house! Use it to create a nice sheen on wooden furniture, to clean jewellery or even to help loosen any rusty bolts that have been getting in your way!
Do you know any other lifehacks that entail beer? Other than drinking it, of course. We just know you guys too well.
