Extra Uses of Shampoo

Are you one of the many who have a habit of collecting toiletries – shampoo in particular – at hotels and overtime don’t have a clue what to do with it?

Check out these tips you might find helpful.

1/ STUCK ZIPPER - put a drop of shampoo on a Q-tip and dab it onto the zipper. The shampoo will help the zipper to slide easily.

2/  LAUNDRY STAINS -treat the stain with a few drops of shampoo, rub them in, let soak, and then launder as usual.

3/ Worse than a wound is often the REMOVAL OF BANDAGE.  Let a few drops of shampoo soak through the adhesive part and the bandage should peel off without pain and sticking.

4/ Shampoo (conditioner, too) works as a great substitute shaving cream. Lather up, shave away. Shampoo is much more nourishing/less drying than soap, which is what many women use on their legs.

5/ REMOVE BODY OIL AND GUNK from combs and hairbrushes; comb out any loose hair and swish the comb/brush in some warm water and shampoo. Let it soak for a few minutes, then rinse well.

6/ CLEAN HOUSEPLANT LEAVES using a few drops of shampoo in a bowl of water; dip a towel in the solution, wring it out, and wipe away dust.

7/  CLEAN PAINT BRUSHES  using a few drops of shampoo and massage it through the bristles, then rinse well. (Never use extra hot water when washing paint brushes, it loosens the glue resulting in bristle loss!)

8/  A few drops of shampoo rubbed onto the inside surface of a swimming mask (then rinsed) will prevent the mask from fogging up.

9/ Shampoo mixed with baking soda into a paste can be used to clean chrome on vehicles; rinse thoroughly and buff to shine.

10/ LOOSEN STUCK NUTS AND BOLTS with a drop of shampoo.  Let it seep into the threads and the bolt should loosen easily.
