Vodka's good in screwdrivers, cosmopolitans, and Cape Codders. It also works for:

1. Cleaning eye glasses: Wipe your lenses a soft, clean cloth dampened with vodka for dust- and bacteria-free specs.

2. Preserving razors: Soak your razors in vodka after use to clean them and prevent rusting.

3. Removing bandaids: Alcohol dissolves the sticky material. No painful rrrip!

4. Scrubbing the tub: Fill a spray bottle with vodka and spray caulking, let sit 5-10 minutes, and wash clean.

5. Perking up flowers: Mix vodka, sugar and water and pour in a vase to keep your aging flowers looking fresh.
