The Power of Olive Oil

Posted by

Olive Shadow

Out of the kitchen, olive oil can be put to good use on personal or household chores.

1. Polish wood furniture with a teaspoon of oil and using a soft rag.

2. Lubricate measuring cups and spoons for easy cleanup of sticky ingredients like honey, grain mustards and syrup.

3. Control hair frizz by combing a bit of olive oil through dry hair to tame the frizz and fly-aways.

4. Remove paint from your skin by applying a small amount of olive oil. Rub in gently. Scrub with a dry cloth.

5. Fix a squeaky door by using a rag or cotton swab to apply olive oil to the top of a problematic hinge.
