Have you heard this joke about baby oil? Something like:

"If corn oil is made from corn, and peanut butter is made from peanuts, then what is baby butter made from?"

Answer: Baby little is produced from mineral and aromatic oils by industrial specialists; children have insufficient fine motor skills or lack knowledge of chemistry to make baby oil.

Baby oil turns out to be useful for a wider range of tasks than just baby hygiene. It can smooth, soften, lubricate, cleanse, polish, and more. Of course, do not forget about the uses for which this oil was originally intended.

Check out some unusual tips and techniques for using baby oil:

Method # 1: First, DO NOT do this

You should not use baby oil as a "personal" lubricant, especially if you are using a latex condom. (Just check out # 2 below to see who wins the battle between latex and baby oil.)

Do not use it as a sunblock or sunblock. Melanoma looks bad enough.

Don't drink baby oil. It is laxative and probably not tasty. (Mineral oil in small amounts is usually safe for human consumption, but only in milligrams. Some are used in bakeries and other food industries because they are odorless and tasteless. is food grade so stop, don't drink it.)

Do not use it in a 2-stroke engine.

Do not point baby oil at pilots. Stop … this seems to be about lasers. But still, be careful with baby oil next to the helicopter pilot. You can, for example, slip and fall, and besides, pilots prefer the smell of aviation fuel.

Method # 2: Wipe off latex paint from leather

I worked as a painter for a couple of years. And in one thing I was always sure that I would not do my hands anyway at the end of the day, they will be stained with paint.

Latex paints and primers have a disgusting characteristic. Sometimes they are simply removed like rubber glue, but most often they remain on the knuckles for several days. Whenever soap and other remedies did not help, baby oil always came to my aid.

Rub a little on the part of the body that has gotten the paint, use a cotton swab, rag, napkin or something else that is on hand. Without applying too much pressure, rub in circles around the outside of the stain. Baby oil is not a scrub, it is more gentle and gentle.

It worked when I turned over 20 liters of paint on myself by tripping over a ladder. This amount of paint covers not only the usual "problem" areas (hands, specks on the face, etc.), it also penetrates into some unusual places that can be very sensitive to paint removal. Presumably the oil degrades the latex to the point where it begins to flake off. That's why condom + baby oil = one great event 9 months later.

Method # 3: massage oil

Use baby oil as a massage oil. Remember our latex tutorial above. Rubber gloves will degrade, as will balloons and possibly some parts of hand held massagers.

Method # 4: remove earwax

When in-ear headphones first began to enter our lives, I went deaf in one ear. Panicking, I went to the doctor, only to find out that I had a sulfur plug, earwax clogged my ear and I could not hear. Unpleasant, isn't it?

There is a simple home remedy for temporary hearing impairment: baby oil!

While lying on your side or tilting your head so that the affected ear is pointing up, pour 5 drops of baby oil into your ear. Leave it there long enough to dissolve everything in there, and then let it drain onto a towel or sink. You can use a small amount of warm water and a syringe WITHOUT a needle to rinse off the residue.

Method # 5: remove makeup

Put some baby oil on a cotton ball. Rub gently where makeup needs to be removed. You can use a second cotton pad to remove excess oil.

This unusual application of baby oil has 2 advantages at once: it removes makeup and makes your eyelids soft and supple.

Method # 6: bath oil

Add a small amount of baby oil to the water the next time you bathe. This will leave your skin feeling soft and silky. Can prevent skin from wrinkling from water.

Method # 7: After Shave Cream

Use baby oil as an aftershave on any part of your body except your face. It works best as a layer on top of traditional moisturizers to lock in freshness.

Method # 8: keep warm

In our area, the air temperature is almost half a year below -10 degrees Celsius. My niece uses baby oil or petroleum jelly as extra protection for exposed skin when she goes to school. This appears to prevent frostbite on the face and dry skin.

But utility and practicality always have a reasonable limit. In frosty weather, when even birds fall from trees, you will not be able to go outside in your underwear. Oil will not save you, although of course it can increase the time it takes you to turn into a piece of ice.

Method # 9: soften heels and cracked feet

If your heels are cracked, dry and unsightly … baby oil and a sock will help you.

Apply some baby oil to your heels before bed and put on your socks. You will be pleasantly surprised when you wake up.

Method # 10: Reduce Stretch Marks During Pregnancy

It is clear that I am not actually pregnant. Not a woman. You will not be fooled for a second.

Apply some baby oil to soften the skin and prevent stretch marks during pregnancy. I've heard good reviews about cocoa butter as well as shea butter. Almost anything is greasy and absorbent.

But baby oil should be just perfect, since you are oiling directly to the temporary home of the baby.

Method # 11: Quick furniture polish

If your dinner starts in ten minutes and you've just noticed horrible water stains on the countertop, fear not. Baby oil will save you by providing a quick polish.

Mineral oil will give your furniture a good and long-lasting shine, creating a waterproof barrier that will surprise any of your guests. In addition, it will give a pleasant baby scent.

Method # 12: unravel the chain

Sometimes your necklace gets so tangled that it just seems impossible to unravel it. Before throwing away your gold and diamonds in frustration, try a baby bath. It will lubricate all metal parts and stones, making it easier to unravel. After soaking the jewelry in the tub, use a safety pin to loosen tangled knots.

Congratulations! You just saved your marriage without throwing away your expensive jewelry. You are welcome.

Method # 13: remove gum, wax or adhesive plaster

If you've got gum, wax on your skin, or on your hair, baby oil will help remove it. Apply a small amount to the affected area, leave it there for a while, and then simply rub it off with your fingers. This will help remove the gum more easily, soften the wax, and help remove old adhered bandages without pulling out your hair.

This is a particularly good way to remove excess wax after depilating your eyebrows or bikini area.

For those of you who remove bandages more often than body hair, applying a small amount of oil around the bandage is a great option if you can't get your nerve to just rip everything off in an instant! A little patience and the adhesive will start to peel off on its own, don't even touch it! Confident but gentle, here's the way to do it. Cruel love.
