Uses of mayonnaise

1. Prevents lice: apply a little mayo to your hair and comb it through. Rinse well. It will leave an oil on the hair that lice will not want to stick to
2. Remove price tags: use a small amount of mayo on a soft cloth and wipe over the tag. Soon it will loosen and you will be able to peel it off completely
3. Lessen the pains of burns
4. Clean light switches and fridge: dirt and smudge accumulate from too much touching. Apply some mayo and wipe away with a clean cloth
5. Treat your cuticle: apply a dab to your cuticles, massage in and rinse
6. Wipe away crayon marks: scrub with mayo and sponge
7. Heal flaky heels: apply mayo mixed with olive oil to your heel. Rinse when done
8. Remove bubble gum: apply some mayo and massage into the gum. The oils will help the gum release
9. Shine your silver: make your silver shine by applying mayo with a soft cloth and rinse
10. Clean paint spots: applying mayo will loosen up the paint and it will clean up easily
11. Remove a ring: add a little mayo to help make the ring slippery and easier to remove
12. Silence the squeak: add a dab of mayo to a squeaky joint or door and it should silence it
13. Facial cleanser: apply a layer and leave for 15 – 20 minutes, wipe off and rinse thoroughly
