Beer is great for drinking, of course, but there are a lot of special uses for beer that you can try around the house. From the garden to the kitchen to the bathroom, here are 12 special uses for beer that might have you picking up an extra 6-pack the next time you go to the store.
In the Garden
1. Both garden plants and houseplants can benefit from getting a beer sprinkle every now and then. Sugar and yeast help feed beneficial bacteria in the soil, which is good for vegetables, flowers and grass.
2. Mix a bottle of beer and a cup of ammonia in four gallons of water and put it in your compost bin to give it a boost.
3. Place shallow bowls of beer in the garden in the evening for an easy way to trap slugs and snails.
