Top 9 Secret Uses for Your Everyday Bathroom Products

You'll never look at shaving cream the same way again. Here are BuzzFeed's top 9 secret uses for your everyday bathroom products.

1. Use a razor to de-pill your clothes in a flash.
2. Nail polish remover can erase permanent marker quickly.
3. A flat iron can do double-duty as an iron. Use it to de-wrinkle clothes.
4. Lipstick can double as blush in a pinch.
5. Shaving cream can remove makeup stains.
6. Try shaving with conditioner. It'll be smoother, and you won't need lotion after.
7. Mouthwash that contains alcohol can help make bruises disappear in a few days.
8. Deodorant can help prevent blisters when rubbed around problem areas of new shoes.
9. Coconut oil is EVERYTHING. It moisturizes, tames pesky frizz, removes makeup and feels great after shaving.

Never accidentally spray your hair with room deodorizer, thinking it's hair spray.

I have used a SAFETY RAZOR to remove pilling from sweaters, blankets, etc., since the 1950's. As a matter of fact, I still use the original safety razor my mother gave me for this exact laundry helper. I buy the double edged blades at the hardware store, 100 blades in the package. One package will last for years.

If you ever put on makeup, then get a bit of mascara on your eyelid, etc by mistake...use a small dab of deodorant. It will take it off, yet leaves most of the rest of your make up in tact. So, now the mascara streak is gone and you can just touch up your eye shadow a bit without having to start over from scratch. Don't ask me how I figured this one out. I don't remember. But, I've been using this trick for over 20 yrs and it works...

For those dry feet in the summertime and keeping your bare heels & feet looking great in sandals...get eyemake-up remover pads, the oily ones? Just before going out, rub the pad over your heels, along the sides and over the top of your pedicure...you'll have no flaky/dry skin and it will give a new shine to your toes!

Pine oil shampoo deflakes dandruff and pine soap sure helps rashes ... anything that itches. Creme of Tarter will cure boils (several times a day, stick your clean finger into the little jar, into your mouth) in like, two weeks the boil will be gone.

Use roll-on deodorant on bites to make mosquito bites tolerable.

You can buy it almost anywhere but it is expensive. Look by the Olive Oil.

If you live near Sam's Club they have a huge container for around $15.00 Well worth the price compared to what grocery stores charge for much smaller ones.
