5 Things To Do with Petroleum Jelly
Petroleum jelly has been one of beauty’s secret weapons for many years. But this wonder jelly can do more than soothe chapped skin. It can give your leather jacket a makeover, protect your doorknobs from unwanted paint jobs, and so much more!
1. Make Emergency Makeup
Oh no! You’ve run out of your favourite shade of eye shadow. What do you do now? It’s easy to make your own. Add a bit of food colouring to petroleum jelly and apply as usual. This is a quick way to make stopgap blush, lipstick, or eye shadow.
3. Mask Doorknobs when Painting
You’re about to undertake painting the family room. But do you really want to fiddle with removing all the metal fixtures, including doorknobs? Petroleum jelly rubbed on the metal will prevent paint from sticking. When you’re done painting, just wipe off the jelly and the unwanted paint is gone.
4. Protect Stored Chrome
If you’re getting ready to store the kids’ bikes for the winter, or stow that stroller until your next baby comes along, stop a moment before you stash. Take some petroleum jelly and apply it to the chrome parts of the equipment. When it’s time to take the items out of storage, they’ll be rust-free. The same method works for machinery stored in your garage.
