For those nasty accidents on carpet, lift off any solids then flush with vodka and blot with paper towels. Continue until area is clean. Then flush with cool water and blot really well to remove excess water. Set up a fan, if possible, to blow across the area to dry it quickly.

Pour some inexpensive vodka into a sturdy resealable bag. Freeze and use for icing sports injuries or any area you need an ice pack. You can make these in different sizes for different needs.

Because of the extremely high alcohol content, the vodka removes odors.
