Did you have a big blowout for the 4th? Got a bunch of bottles with just a bit of beer in them? Don't pour them down the drain. We've heard of another use for beer:
We found this trick over at DIYLife: pour some beer on a microfiber cloth and rub it on your wooden furniture. Similar to when you use it as a rinse for your hair (if you've ever done that!), the beer will bring up the shine and deepen the color. Don't use it on anything light-colored and always give it a test run on the underside of your furniture first to see if you like the results.
Sounds interesting. Anyone ever tried this?
