3 Unique Uses of Beer You Will Love

Beer is often called a man's best friend for obvious reasons. But there are many uses of beer that can make you heady, besides drinking it. We bring you three unique uses of beer that will make you say cheers.

Inexpensive Spa treatment at Home:

Give your feet a luxury spa like treatment at home, with just a bottle of chilled beer, some warm water and a pinch of salt. Yes, you heard it right just with those three ingredients you can give yourself one of the world's best luxurious pedicure. Fill a bucket's 1/4 th part with warm water (not hot, just warm), add your favorite chilled beer and a pinch of salt to it. Soak your feet in it for 30 minutes or as long as you like. Wash your feet with normal water and wipe it dry with a clean towel and the magic is in front of your eyes.

Not just your legs will be super relaxed, they will also be super clean and super soft. If you want to give your whole body a super luxurious treatment, go for a beer bubble bath in your own bathroom. Fill your bathtub with warm water and add one or two bottle of chilled beer to it, light an aroma lamp by the side and step in the bathtub with a glass of wine or a cup of green tea. Soak in the heavenly experience and forget the world.

Magical potion for Old furniture:

Had a party last night and have some left over beer in bottles which has gone flat? Well that's a magical potion to add some lustrous sheen to that old wooden furniture in your house. Just dip some cotton or some spare clean cloth in the leftover beer from the opened bottled from last night and polish your furniture with it. Do it twice and see your old and dull furniture shining bright, as good as new.

Pillow Covers to cure Insomnia:

No, we are not suggesting to drink a beer can before going to bed! We have a much better idea, which will lull you to sleep without getting those extra calories of beer inside you . Just soak your pillow covers for a few minutes in water with a cup of beer added to it. Take the pillow cover out and wash it with regular water, do not put soap after this. Once dry, put this pillow cover on your pillow and be ready to be transported to the sleep land within a few minutes. It is said that the light fragrance of the beer coming from the pillow cover relaxes your mind and your body, gently lulling you to sleep.
