Found this article while wondering what to do with some gin I have (not a great fan of drinking it and other suggestions members of the Form may have would be difficult as the bottle is very square at the base! ) While gin’s delicious flavor goes great in a cocktail, here are a few alternative uses for it: 1. Mouthwash: If you can’t stand the flavor of synthetic peppermint in your mouthwash, why not try gin? Mix in a few drops of thyme oil, which goes well with gin’s juniper flavor, for an herbal anti-microbial kick. 2. Footwash: While you’re swishing your way to fresher breath with a mouthful of gin and thyme oil, you can also try the mixture on your feet to eliminate foot odor. 3. Pickles: Whether you make your own pickles, or buy them from the store, adding a shot or two of gin to the brine is a great way to boost the flavor of your cukes. 4. Pie Crusts: Because alcohol evaporates at a lower temperature than water, you can get a flakier, more delicious pie crust by replacing some of the water in your recipe with vodka -- or gin. While you can use any kind of drinkable distilled alcohol, gin has a flavor that works especially well with savory pot pies. [This one is for you @JoyDelicacies] 5. Air Freshener: Fill a spray bottle with some gin and a few drops of essential oil for a homemade air freshener. The alcohol quickly evaporates, leaving behind the piney scent of juniper and whatever else you add in. 6. All-Purpose Cleaner: While you have a spray bottle loaded up with gin, use it to get rid of mold and mildew. For best cleaning results, let the stubborn spores soak in the alcohol for a few minutes before wiping them away with a damp cloth or sponge. 7. Arthritis Cure: [I do not quote this as a medical certainty, but anyone with arthritis now has another 'excuse' to drink gin]. Soak a bowl of golden raisins in gin and leave them for a week. Eat 10 of these boozy treats a day to rid yourself of arthritis pain. While it isn’t really known why this cure seems to work, people speculate that it has to do with the combined anti-inflammatory properties of juniper, grapes and the sulfur dioxide used to keep the raisins golden. 8. Herbal Tinctures: Tinctures are a great way to extract the medicinal and flavor-bearing components of herbs. Simply cover a handful of dried herbs with gin and seal in a sterilized canning jar for a week. Then strain the mixture through a cheesecloth and you’ll have a potent, great-tasting tincture. 9. Aftershave: A post-shave splash of alcohol-based aftershave keeps the skin tight, while cleaning out any nicks or cuts. While you can certainly go with a store-bought brand, the heady scent of juniper on your neck might lure you a martini-loving lady the next time you hit the town. (It may not be advisable to splash your face with gin before work, however.) 10. Soap Additive: Mixing a splash of gin into your liquid soap will give it a lovely added scent, while boosting its bacteria-battling capabilities.
