If you’re not the type to keep chrome polish lying around but you are the type who has a bottle of vodka they didn’t care for sitting the back of your home bar or pantry, consider using it as a chrome or jewelry polish. It works well when combined with a microfiber cloth, and lets you use something you already have instead of making you buy something new.

We’ve discussed how you can use it to wash away sticky residue among other things, but according to Readers Digest, it’s also an excellent jewelry polish—provided you do not use it to clean jewelry with gems or other stones inlaid in the jewelry. For best results, let your necklace or chain soak for a few minutes in a shallow cup or bowl of the stuff, then wipe clean with a microfiber cloth.
