11 Unusual Uses for Baby Oil*

Cleaning & Organization | HGDI ADMIN

Baby oil is not just for babies anymore. Besides being a tiny tot staple, baby oil has some unusual household uses.

  1. If you have been caught red handed (or yellow handed or Marsala handed) remedy the situation with baby oil, which easily and gently removes latex paint from skin. 
  2. Stay warm on a cold day. Before you leave your warm cocoon, rub baby oil on your skin. It will cause your pores to close up and encourage your body’s natural insulation.
  3. Shine up wooden furniture by rubbing in a little bit of baby oil with a clean cloth. 
  4. Forget asking your kids if they want you to go slowly or just rip off the bandage. Rub a little baby oil over a stubborn band aid, and it will peel right off, pain free.
  5. Clean and waterproof leather boots, handbags and furniture with baby oil. It will also keep the leather supple and prevent cracking with zero harsh chemicals. 
  6. Clean up the car’s plastic dashboard and make cracks disappear with the use of baby oil.
  7. When your necklace is all tied up in knots, add a drop of baby oil to the snarl and get it all sorted out quickly. 
  8. Smooth the way for a stuck zipper by applying baby oil on both sides of the zipper using a cotton swab.
  9. Buff up your stainless steel appliances. Fingerprints will disappear and the surfaces will shine like new.
  10. Sticky shredder? Pour a few drops of baby oil on a piece of paper and then shred it. The  baby oil will lubricate the shredder and get everything working smoothly again. 
  11. Remove soap scum and create a barrier against mold when you add some baby oil to your shower door or shower curtain.
