Did you know that peanut butter is not only great to eat, it also has a multitude of uses. You will be surprised at just how much you can accomplish with a jar of peanut butter.
The most surprising fact that I found out about peanut butter, is that mice love peanut butter more than they like cheese. Why then do so many people use cheese in their mouse traps. Peanut butter has been proven to work a lot more effectively in catching these small rodents.
Because it tastes so yummy, and the kids love it, why not use it to get your child to take his medicine. Try mixing their medication with a spoon full of peanut butter, and you won’t have any problems getting them to take it.
Another great use for peanut butter is the fact that you can use it to remove stubborn price tags. Often you battle to get rid of the glue that is left behind after you pull a price tag off. All you need to do next time this happens is to place a dollop on the affected area and then rub it with a cloth. This trick works wonders.
Peanut butter can be used in the kitchen to get rid of smelly odors. When you fry fish for instance, that fishy smell is left behind in your kitchen for hours and sometimes days afterwards. To solve this smelly problem, drop a tablespoon into the frying pan that you cooked the fish in and fry it for a couple of minutes. Guaranteed that within a half an hour you won’t smell any fish.
Peanut butter works well on rust. You can use it to lubricate rusty hinges, squeaky garden gates, rusty lawn mower blades and just about any rusty parts that you can find.
I am sure you have already heard how good it is at removing chewing gum from your children’s hair, but did you know you can use it to remove gum from any other objects like carpets, wood and clothing. You can also use it to clean your leather furniture. Simply rub a small amount onto your furniture in a circular motion, then remove with a buffing cloth. If you don’t like the smell, try mixing it with a few drops of perfume before applying it to your furniture.
Believe it or not, you can also use it as a shaving gel. Use it like you would your normal shaving gel, and you will find it works just as well as the more expensive products. The oils in the butter are great for your skin, so you probably won’t even need an after shave balm. Just remember that the smooth variety works far better for most of the above tasks than the chunky kind.
