Five things to do with beer besides drink it

We think not. The day is celebrated on the first Friday of every August. While there are many big beer fans out there, some of us are not. So we’ve compiled a list of five things you can use beer for, instead of drinking it.

  •  Forget that powder meat tenderiser … does it really even work anyway? You can use a can of beer to soften up tough meat and make a tasty marinade. Let the meat soak in that yeasty goodness overnight for a mouth-watering hunk of meat.
  •  Ditch the shampoo – replace it with beer. Your man will love cuddling up to you and it will restore your hair’s natural body and bounce. Beer is packed with vitamin B and natural sugars that act as a setting agent and it will increase the natural hold of your hair.
  •  Beer can get those coffee or tea stains out of your carpet. Believe it or not, you don’t need to fork out a fortune for expensive, carpet cleaners. Just do a small colour test (you don’t want to add another stain to the collection), then if all goes well, douse the stains in beer, blot, repeat and voilà.
  •  Elbow grease and beer is what you need to get gleaming pots and pans. Try a spot test first, but if all goes well, you can dampen a soft towel with beer and buff away. We wonder if Gordon Ramsey knows that…
  •  Cleopatra may have bathed in milk because she didn’t know about beer. We’re not saying that you need to fill a bathtub with the stuff – hubby will not be pleased. Just let a little slip into your bath and enjoy the bubbles and antioxidant properties. Your skin will love you.
