Clean Cast Iron Pots and Pans with Beer
Cover the bottom of the pot or pan while it is still warm. Wait 5-10 minutes. This prevents any left over food particles from sticking.
Polish Brass and Copper Pots
Clean the tarnish and fingerprints on copper pots with beer and a clean cloth. Rub the beer on the copper surface. The acid in beer with remove the tarnish and dirt.
Clean Gold Jewelry with Beer
Pour either light or medium beer (not dark) over the gold jewelry, rinse, then shine with a clean cloth. The carbonic acid in beer will react with the oil and dirt on your jewelry to dissolve it. Or better still place your jewelry in bowl of beer and soak it for 10 minutes or so. Then rinse and wipe.
Use Flat Beer to Polish Wooden Furniture
Use a soft cloth soaked in flat beer to wipe the surface, then polish with a clean dry cloth. The beer will loosen dirt; the malt adds a rich colour to the wooden hue and the alcohol brings out the shine. Test a small hidden area first just to be safe.
Use Beer to remove Rust Spots or to help Loosen Rusty Bolts
Cover the rust spots in a beer saturated cloth for about an hour. The carbonic acid will help dissolve the rust.
