Six Uses (and More) for an Everyday Household Item

A few weeks ago, we gave you suggestions for how to use baking soda around your house.  We continue our budget-wise theme in our post today which details several uses for petroleum jelly.

  1. Buff out water marks left by glasses on your coffee table by using petroleum jelly.  A few swipes and your table will be good as new!
  2. Protect your skin from unwanted color when dyeing your hair by rubbing petroleum jelly around your hairline and on your ears.  This barrier will protect your skin and easily wipes off when you are done.
  3. Get ready for baseball season by using petroleum jelly to soften the leather of your baseball glove.  Don’t overdo it though, otherwise the ball will become slick after a few catches.
  4. Groom facial hair by using a tad of petroleum jelly in your goatee or mustache.  Don’t worry ladies, you can also use petroleum jelly to control those stray eyebrow hairs!
  5. Dry skin?  Try using petroleum jelly in place of your normal moisturizer.  If your hands are especially dry, coat them with petroleum jelly before bed then wear gloves or socks on your hands while you sleep.  Your hands will be silky soft the next morning!
  6. Use petroleum jelly to quiet that noisy drawer on your filing cabinet.  Apply a little petroleum jelly where the squeak occurs and your will be able to access your important documents, such as your Wisconsin life insurance papers, with ease.


Do you have any other uses for petroleum jelly?  Post on our Facebook wall or Tweet us @Community_Ins to tell us!
