Here is one more product with multiple uses…Have you ever thought about using olive oil for this?

1)  Paint remover-your hands can get stained with splatter while painting.  How do you get them clean with out scrubbing your hands raw?  Try a teaspoon of olive oil and mix with a pinch of either sugar or baking soda.  Gently rub over the area to remove paint.

2)  Unstick zippers-using a q-tip apply a small amount of oil to the inside of the slider and move the tab up and down the teeth a few times.

3)  If you find you have run out of your favorite shave cream, you can use sub it when shaving.    Lightly coat your legs in olive oil and your razor will run effortlessly over stubble.  It also conditions your razor blades too!

4)  Clean candlesticks.  Wash it first with mild dish soap and a few drops of olive oil.  To prevent pieces from sticking, wipe a tiny bit olive oil on the inside before you put the candle back in.

5)  Prevent hair balls.  Drizzle a teaspoon of olive oil on pet food to help any swallowed hair make its way through your furry friend’s digestive system so it won’t be coughed up instead.
