Old Beer As The Next ‘Green’ Cleaning Agent?

Sometime I really wonder how I come across these things, but this one was a bit crazy enough to bookmark and share. For all you ‘Go Green’-types out there who have some stale old beer at the bottom of your keg or bottles, don’t throw it out – apparently, you can use it in place of some household cleaners.

A week or two ago over on, the blog offered ten cleaning uses for your ‘to-be-tossed’ beer that would make the organic/green/environmental folks proud. I’ve summarized the list below, but check out the post for the full description.
  1. Coffee or tea stain remover.
  2. Jewelry polish.
  3. Wood furniture cleaner.
  4. Slug and snail trap in the garden.
  5. Carpet stain remover.
  6. Hair conditioner.
  7. Fruit fly repellent.
  8. Bee repellent.
  9. Copper cleaner.
  10. Plant food.
“In a time where we’re leaning to make the most of our resources, there’s no reason to let a little flat beer go to waste.”

Who knew?!?
