This next list i want to discuss is about foods that have multiple uses, rather than just consumption. A few blogs back, you saw my garlic post, so you could see how many different uses garlic has, but now you can see what other common foods in your kitchen can do!
Here are 10 foods that have multiple uses!
1-Lemon- This is a great sanitizer, especially to cutting boards that you have been using. It can also disinfect wounds. If you mix this with salt, you can remove iron stains on medal. It soothes sore throats, and brightens white clothing, just add some lemon into your wash, with bleach.
2-Olive Oil- This is powerful on dry skin. Instead of using moisturizers, you olive oil when you get out of the shower. It can also remove eye makeup, and un- squeak doors.
3-Milk- This one is surprising. Milk can repair cracked china, dry milk can soothe bug bites, and milk that has gone bad is useful as well. It can clean your septic tank. Just pour the sour milk down the toilet. If you have tarnished silverware, just soak it in sou milk for around 30 minutes.
4-Coke (cola)- This can help with motor oil stains.. Just pour some coke over the oil stain in your driveway, leave for a few minutes, and rinse with a hose. Coke is a good toilet cleaner as well, just pour in and soak in the toilet bowl for an hour!
5- Vodka- This is a great for sanitizing. Whiskey also can be used for sanitation.
6-Butter- Now, here is something cool to do with butter. If you have a cat that gets nervous around a lot of people, just put some butter on its paws and the cat will be too busy cleaning themselves to care about all the people! Also…if you are about to use an onion, and you only use 1/2 of it, you can spread some butter on the exposed side of the onion that you are not about to use, and this will make the onion stay fresher for longer.
7-Dough Ball- A weird one, is this one….dough balls can clean stains on your wallpaper.
8-Banana peel- you can use a banana peel instead of shoe polish when polishing your shoes.
9-Vinegar- This can clean your coffee maker, and coffee stains in general. It also is good at killing weeds.
10-Sugar- This has multiple uses. Feeding a dose of sugar water to a baby right before they get a shot, makes the baby more at ease. You can use sugar as a lip balm. Just mix a little sugar and olive oil together, and add an extract of your choice. Your lips will be really smooth. Sugar can also take part in moisturizing. If you ix it with some smashed up banana and oilve oil, you are good to go. Sugar can also be a source of feeding flowers and removing grass stains.
There you have it! Some of those were a bit of a shocker!
