I follow the frugal living blog Wise Bread pretty closely for inspiration for my other blog RealWorldReally.com, so I was quite surprised this evening when something popped up in my Google Reader from Wise Bread which was more appropriate for this blog: Wise Bread’s 21 Great Uses for Beer. The list includes everything from:
4: Take a beer bath
…Drain a few kegs into the tub and let the invigorating bubbles cleanse the skin and exfoliate. The yeasts and other ingredients are great skin-softeners. Then take a long shower.
To my personal favorite (and something I’ll have to try one of these days):
20: Wash your pillowcases in it
This may be an old wives tale, but apparently the nutty smell of hops helps you fall asleep. If you’re an insomniac, try washing a pillowcase in beer and you may just get to the land of nod sooner than you think.
And really just about everything in between. The only thing that seemed to be missing from Paul’s post… DRINK IT!
