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.

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.

But be careful. Toothpaste is abrasive, and actually wears away a bit of the metal. There are some stones, like opal, emeralds and pearls, that will be damaged by toothpaste. Apple cider vinegar is probably a better option.

Peanut Butter will remove the sticky residue from labels or tape. Peel off as much of the label as you can and then rub peanut butter over it. Let sit for about an hour and just wipe off.

Smooth dryer sheets over your hair to get rid of frizz and flyaways. Wonderful during the dry cold winter months.

If you are going to brush or comb your hair later, after rubbing the dryer sheet over your hair, rub a dryer sheet over your brush / comb beforehand to keep your hair smooth.

For blod stain removal, specially the dry one use peroxide 5% directly on stain. Will remove it instantly. For a great tooth whitening, mix 1 tspn peroxide 5% and 1 tspn water, swish it around (never swallow) then mix 1 tspn baking soda and 1 tspn peroxide 5% ( to a paste consistency) and brush. Voila!!!!! for a few cents a new smile.

Don't forget to use it for "Swoobs"----------------Sweaty Boobs-------------It's the latest marketing craze. Three manufacturers have already produced deodorant for sweaty boobs. Think I am kidding? Google it!
