January 24th happens to be Beer Can Appreciation Day. Why should we be appreciating the beer can today of all days? Well, it's because back on this day in 1935, Krueger Cream Ale became the first beer sold in cans.

Beer has many uses, besides the obvious.  It comes in handy around the house for several things.

Cathching Slugs and Snails
Arrange a few containers of beer around your yard at night and by morning, they will all have crawled inside

Fruit Flies
Place a can of beer on the kitchen counter.  Cover the top with plastic wrap or paper, leaving a small opening for the flies to get into.

Bees and Wasps
Place cups of beer away from the house and the insects will make a beeline for it.

Removing Stains
Test a small spot of fabric by soaking a stain with beer and letting it sit before dabbing it off.

Wood Furniture
Beer can bring back the color or wooden furniture.  Use flat beer and a soft cloth to gently rub it in.

And yes you can make a hat out of them too!
