Clean and Repair Your Home with Mayo
From brightening up a piano to repairing a chair, mayonnaise can do a lot more than just flavor a sandwich.
Here are eight ways you can use this panty staple to fix and clean items around the house.
Piano keys looking a little dingy? Apply some mayo, allow it to sit for five minutes and then wipe clean.
Wipe off water stains from wood furniture when you use a clean towel to dab a little bit of mayo on the stains. Let it sit for a minute or two and then rub with a cloth. Repeat as needed until the stains disappear.
If your car or outdoor furniture is covered with pine sap, remove it by using mayonnaise. The mayo will work equally well removing sap or tar from hands.
Pretend you don’t have any kids, thanks to pristine walls brought to you with a bit of mayo. It takes out crayon marks and a lot more. Coat the area with may and let it sit for 10 minutes before wiping with a cloth. Since mayo contains oil, test an inconspicuous area of the wall first.
Remove stickers and price tags with ease. Allow the may to sit over the spot for a few minutes and then wipe it away. The sticker or price tag will peel off.
Shine up the leaves of your houseplants by rubbing them with a little mayo. Use a paper towel to apply and wipe gently.
Did the guy you voted for lose the election? Use some mayonnaise to take off old bumper stickers. It will disengage the glue that holds them.
Shrink the cracks in wood furniture by filling them with mayo. In a few days, the mayo will swell the wood and make the crack shrink and visibly disappear. Make sure to wipe off any excess from outside of the crack.
