It’s a Beverage! It’s a Cleaner! It’s a Pest Remover!

It turns out there’s a lot more you can do with beer around the house other than drink it.  You can trap slugs and fruit flies, get rid of those pesky brown spots on your lawn, fertilize your garden, and restore the natural luster to that old table in your living room.  Beer is a beverage, a pest remover, a fertilizer, a furniture polish and so much more!  Cris Carl from breaks it down and shares the 14 household uses for beer. Who knew that beer was so helpful?

This reminds me of the old SNL sketch for Shimmer Floor Wax.  It’s a dessert topping!  No, it’s a floor wax!  No, it’s a dessert topping AND a floor wax!!  Click here to see it on Hulu (once you suffer through 5 seconds of Coors Light sponsorship!).

Anyway, the next time you’re going to pour out a bad beer, head to your front lawn or your potted plants instead.  They can’t taste how bad it is and will enjoy the nutrients!

    Can we pour beer on this blog to make it better? I guess we could drink a lot of beer and it might be funnier, if we can read the screen.

    Jim sucks.

      You can send us beer and we’ll see if that helps.

      And with all this ‘Jim Sucks’ talk you’re starting to sound like my wife. 🙂

        You need to be more patient for her wants and needs then. Take some lessons from Don Juan.

    Pour it on my lawn? Well my lawn needs it right now, and I’ve got a bottle of nasty sorghum beer in the fridge, sounds like a plan!

        What Jim means is take during pics too!

          It’ll be a two-fisted picture of the application: the nasty beer being poured on the lawn from one hand, while the other hand pouring a good beer down my throat. 🙂
