Vegetable Oil Facts: Help Remove a Splinter
Here’s a fun vegetable oil fact. That stubborn splinter just won’t come out. Take a break from poking at your finger for a few minutes and soak it in vegetable oil. The oil will soften your skin, perhaps just enough to ease that splinter out with your tweezers.
Vegetable Oil Facts: Remove Labels and Stickers
Another vegetable oil fact: Used jars-both plastic and glass-are always handy to have around. But removing the old labels always leaves a stubborn sticky residue. Soak the label with vegetable oil and the label will slide right off. Works great for sticky price tags too.
Vegetable Oil Facts: Smooth Your Feet
Smooth your feet with vegetable oil. Rub your feet with vegetable oil before you go to bed and put on a pair of socks. When you awaken, your tootsies will be silky-smooth and soft.
Vegetable Oil Facts: Lawn Clippings
Prevent clippings from sticking to your mower with vegetable oil. The next time you turn over your lawn mower to remove the stuck on grass clippings, rub some vegetable oil on the housing and on the blade. It will take a lot longer for the clippings to build up next time.
Vegetable Oil Facts: Control Mosquitoes in the Birdbath
Control mosquitoes in the birdbath with vegetable oil. It’s so satisfying to watch birds enjoying the garden bath you provide. But unfortunately, that still water is a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Floating a few tablespoons of vegetable oil on the surface of the water will help keep mosquitoes from using the water, and it won’t bother the birds. But it’s still important to change the water twice a week so any larvae don’t have time to hatch.
