Clean and Polish Pots with Leftover Beer

When you've got some leftover opened beer from a party, don't pour it down the drain. Instead, take that beer and soak your rings in it or give your pots and pans some sparkle.

Over at Men's Health they list 15 clever uses for beer. One of the more surprising ones? You can use it to polish pots:

"In days of yore, the last bit of beer from spent kegs was collected and used to polish the copper vats in breweries. Gregg Smith, general manager of the Idaho Brewing Company, is keeping the tradition alive by using beer to put a shine on the copper-top tables in his Idaho Falls establishment. "Because of its acidity", he explains, "you can just pour some on, let it sit for a while, then wipe it off. It also works well on Revere Ware pots."

This tip also applies to gold jewellery. Just drop a ring in a container and let it soak, and then polish it.
