For fresher linens, try this recipe: vodka, 20 oz. distilled water, and 1 tsp. lavender essential oil. Find a large container with a lid. Mix the vodka and water, then add the essential oil. Shake thoroughly. Place in spray bottle. You can substitute other scents. Use this on sheets, and towels in the linen closet or on pillows, sheets, comforters, clothing (it can help with smoke odors), sneakers, upholstered furniture, or carpeting.
To remove stains, add vodka to grass, paint, tree sap, ink, or lipsticks stains and launder as usual.
You can also use vodka to shine chrome. Pour on a cloth and shine windows, windshields, eye glasses, mirrors, tile, and tub too.

This is not thrifty. Vodka is expensive. Use rubbing alcohol for a cheaper alternative.
Yes i was going to say, why not use rubbing alcohol as isn't the alcohol in the vodka that is doing the work anyway? I should probably use the bottle of vodka that we've had in the cabinet for years for cleaning purposes tho because I know we'll never drink it!
Vodka! It must be cheap in U.S.A! LOL. I much prefer its traditional use, to make everything happy and blurry and loving and "jush goo' ole frens wiz evrybuddy."
I've also heard you can use vodka plus essential oil to make your own perfume or cologne, depending on the amount of oil used. How much vodka did you use for the spray?
You don't say how much vodka to use. A small bottle of vodka costs over $25, and up depending on the brand. This is hardly cost effective. Why not use rubbing alcohol for like a $1 a bottle? Rubbing alcohol is great for cleaning, and killing germs!
