Olive oil is used in hundreds of recipes, but did you know it can be used for so many other household tasks?
Use it in the
kitchen to season cast iron pans, or wooden cutting boards and
salad bowls! If you have some leather shoes or a baseball glove that need some
revitalizing try olive oil.
Put a little on a soft cloth and work it into the
leather, remember a little goes a long way!
Use it to shine up plant leaves.
A little dab on a paper towel will make
your plants look great.
wood furniture? No problem! Just rub a little over the surface and the dents
In the yard it can help
keep moles away. Saturate an old rag with olive oil and stuff it into a mole
hole. The animals hate the smell and will stay far away.
Keep some olive oil in the garage too. A
quick coat on gardening tools will keep them from rusting.
It will also lubricate garage door tracks.
Olive oil is also a great hand
cleaner for greasy, grimy hands! Rub it in and wipe it away with a paper towel. This also works on dry hands and feet. Just
rub some in before you go to bed and slip on a pair of cotton socks or gloves
you won't believe the difference in the morning.
