    Vodka and Jelly Fish, Sounds Good to Me

    jelly fish Vodka and Jelly Fish, Sounds Good to Me

    While stumbling through random websites, I found this list of anecdotes that says, “vodka will disinfect and alleviate a jellyfish sting.”  So there you go. If you don’t have any urine to pour on your jelly fish sting and you don’t mind tossing some vodka, pour vodka on your sting and it should go away.

    It also apparently helps cure swimmer’s ear: “Eliminate swimmer’s ear. If you don’t have rubbing alcohol, fill an ear dropper with vodka, and squeeze it into the affected ear, then let it drain out.”

    You can even use vodka to get rid of last year’s beach parking permit and all the glue they tend to leave behind.  “Rub the glue with a soft, clean cloth soaked with vodka.”

    btw, there are a lot of other things you can do with vodka too. Funny, this list I found doesn’t even mention drinking it. Basically, if you’re of age, you should be taking vodka to the beach with you. You’re gonna need two bottles and they need to be plastic.

    If you read this and then pour vodka on a jelly fish sting, you really need to email me about it.

    2. I've received a couple of emails about jelly fish and vodka lately. One person said they think the jelly fish somehow got in their blood vessels… idk about all that, but here's a detailed email about another person's experience with pouring vodka on a jelly fish sting:

      "Hey, I accidentally stumbled upon your page while looking for jellyfish stings information. I just wanted to let you know I just recently got stung by a jellyfish while in Cocoa Beach, Florida, for my vacation, and my friends bought me some vodka and soaked my foot in it. It actually helped out a lot, and in less than an hour the swelling was gone, it didn't hurt and didn't even itch anymore.

      "Now, the reason why I was even looking for jellyfish stings info in the first place is that, several days later after my sting, it's swelling up and itching again, so I don't know the effects of vodka in the long run. Are stings even supposed to bother you so long after you got them? Hm.

      "In any case, there's my experience. =)"
