Other Home Remedies Vodka for Foot odor I poured some onto a washcloth and wiped my brother’s feet. It’s the same principle as rubbing alcohol. Vodka is alcohol, which is antiseptic. It destroys odor-causing fungus and bacteria and dries out the moisture that lets these organisms grow.
Other Home Remedies cont. Acupuncture also works on headaches. Tiny needles are inserted into specific points of the body; this can reduce muscle tension and encourages the release of painkilling endorphins. I also had acupuncture done on my knees because experienced pain from ballet dancing.
