8 Alternative Ways to Use Hair Conditioner Around the House
Hair conditioner is a staple in many showers. But what is it is expired or you just don’t like it? There are some other awesome uses for conditioner around the house that you probably didn't know about. Enjoy!
1. Unstick a ring
Grandma’s antique ring just got stuck on your middle finger. Now what? Grab a bottle of hair conditioner and slick down the finger. The ring should slide right off.
2. Protect your shoes in foul weather
Here’s a way to protect your shoes during winter. Lather your shoes or boots with hair conditioner to protect them from winter’s harsh elements. It’s a good leather conditioner, too.
3. Lubricate a zipper
You’re racing out the door, throwing on your jacket and the zipper gets stuck, so you yank and pull until it finally zips up. A dab of hair conditioner rubbed along the zipper teeth can help you avoid that problem in future.
4. Smooth shave-irritated legs
After you shave your legs, they may feel rough and irritated. Rub on hair conditioner; it acts like a lotion and can soothe the hurt away.
5. Make a shower curtain slide smoothly
Tired of pulling on the shower curtain? Instead of closing smoothly, does it stutter along the curtain rod, letting the shower spray water on the floor? Rub the shower-curtain rod with hair conditioner and the curtain will glide across it.
6. Clean and shine your houseplants
Do your houseplants need a good dusting? Feel like your peace lily could use a makeover? Put a bit of hair conditioner on a soft cloth and rub the plant leaves to remove dust and add shine to the leaves.
7. Oil skate wheels
Do your child’s skateboard wheels whine? Or are the kids complaining about their in-line and roller skates sticking? Try rubbing hair conditioner on the axles of the wheels, and they’ll be back on the block with their rehabilitated equipment in no time.
8. Shine stainless steel
Apply hair conditioner to your faucets, golf clubs, chrome fixtures, or anything else that needs a shine. Rub it off with a soft cloth and you’ll be impressed with the gleam.
