If you remember, my Roman-wanna-be husband once wrote a post about shaving with olive oil. In the dry winter months, I’ve found other uses for it too.
1. Moisturizer for dry skin and cuticles.
After a bath or shower, pat yourself dry but not completely. Work a thin layer on dry legs, elbows, heels, and cuticle beds. Allow yourself to air dry the rest of the way.
2. Making candles
Apply a thin coat to the bottom of the candle holder before pouring in the melted wax. Candle should slip right out.
3. Replace cupcake papers
I haven’t bought cupcake or muffin papers in years. I just oil up the muffin pan with olive oil instead. Granted, it does require scrubbing afterwards….
4. Avoid hair balls
Adding 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon olive oil to cat food prevents hair balls.
5. Shine stainless steel or lube tops of door hinges to keep from squeaking.
Only a small dab is needed.
6. Remove eye makeup.
I have never personally tried this one, but you know I will now.
7. Unstick a zipper
Apply a drop to lubricate teeth using a Q-tip, but DO NOT GET ON FABRIC!
8. Drink as a snack.
No, really. I know someone who does this. He claims it’s full of the good fats and he looks good so…..
