New Year Eve’s Over, But There’s Still Vodka Left In The Bottle. Here’s What You Should Do

Did you party hard on the New Year's Eve? Duh! Why am I even asking. Of course, you did party hard and then also had a hangover the next morning. Probably it even lasted till evening. As much as we enjoy that glass at a party, the following day or the coming days are about all kinds of detox procedures, gymming, and what not, to tackle side-effects like beer bellies, extra centimetres around the waist, etcetera. But, the celebration's a must, and especially if you belong to the millennial generation, you might probably say - Who cares! And continue with your lives the way you do, sipping all the liquor that is there in the world.Our body doesn't metabolise liquor the way it does with other edibles we consume. So, does that mean a "No" to buying vodka from tomorrow? I don't think so. Because it may be hard for you to believe, but there are a few benefits of vodka:

Health benefits

Russians' association with vodka goes long back in time. Though there isn't much of empirical evidence, they believe it helps in keeping the drinker's skin healthy and abets in hair growth. Also, when consumed (in moderation), it acts as a disinfectant for the body and relieves a person from toothaches when taken with a pinch of salt.Surprised? Well, I'm not done yet, and by the time you scroll to the end, you will come across seven more surprising facts about vodka and what you can do with it.

Long live the flowers

So, apart from getting high on vodka, you can always keep your flowers fresh for a longer period by adding a teaspoon of sugar with a few drops of vodka.

Vodka is lighter...

...than water. A litre of vodka weighs 953 grams while it is 1,000 grams for water.

Disinfectant

If you're stung by a jellyfish, someday, on your Goa trip then don't forget to apply some vodka to it. Vodka soothes it and also acts as a disinfectant to the wound alleviating some pain.

Band-aid removal

If you're already high on vodka, then it wouldn't make a difference, but if you're not then while peeling off a band-aid, you wet it in vodka. It will help take it off quite quickly and cause less pain. Scientifically, vodka carries the characteristics of dissolving adhesive. 

Cleaner and shiner

Do you face trouble in cleaning chrome, glass, or porcelain fixtures? Well, dip your cleaning cloth in some vodka (because the rest is for you to drink) and get the job done easily.

Rich hair

Moderation is the key when talking about vodka. It is efficient enough to remove the hard water minerals from your hair if a shot is mixed with shampoo. But, it can also damage all the natural oils your scalp has if used in excess.

Vodka Diaries

To my surprise, now even Bollywood is crazy around the idea of vodka, and Kushal Srivastava has actually come up with a directorial debut Vodka Diaries. The film stars Kay Kay Menon, Mandira Bedi and Raima Sen, to name a few. It's a thriller drama film full of mysteries and series of murders which Menon is trying to solve as ACP Ashwini Dixit. The film hit the theatres on January 19. Drink responsibly and keep in touch at kanishka@wittyfeed.com
