Shaving cream is a great invention! It’s pleasant to use and even a little fun, and it definitely makes shaving safer and easier. This is true for legs and faces.
In addition to smelling great, conditioning your skin and helping you avoid unsightly nicks and cuts, shaving cream also has several other smart uses. In this article we will discuss eight great ways that you can use shaving cream. Read on to learn more.
1. Shaving cream makes a great lubricant along the lines of WD-40. If you have squeaky hinges, you can de-squeak them easily by applying a good-sized gob of shaving cream. Rub it in well and use a towel to wipe off the excess. Next thing you know, your hinges will no longer squeak.
2. If you need to polish chrome, shaving cream is a nice mild alternative to harsh chemicals. It’s especially good for polishing your bathroom and kitchen faucets. It’s handy and pleasant to use and it does a great job!
3. As a spot remover, shaving cream is a champ! The key is to use it right away. As soon as you spill something on your clothing or on the carpet, wash it with cool to lukewarm water and apply shaving cream. You’ll need to scrub pretty well and then rinse the area completely with cool to lukewarm water. The stain should be gone!
4. Keep your bathroom mirror fog free by treating it with shaving cream from time to time. Just apply it to the mirror and rub with dry paper toweling until the mirror is clean. When you take a shower, you will find that your mirror stays clear and is ready to use as soon as you get out.
5. Naturally, you can also use shaving cream to keep your glasses from fogging up. Just apply the cream and wipe your lenses clean with a soft, clean cloth. Cotton is usually best.
6. Use shaving cream instead of windshield de-fogger. Apply it to the inside of your windshield using a damp cloth. Buff the glass with a soft, dry cloth.
7. Get stubborn paint stains off your skin with shaving cream. It’s very easy to do.
Just apply a dollop of shaving cream to the area where you have spilled paint on your skin and scrub just as you would when using soap.
It may take quite a bit of scrubbing, but before long you will find that you have removed all of the paint from your skin.
8. Clean your hands and nails after grubby work. If you’ve been gardening or working on an engine or some such, wash your hands with shaving cream and apply shaving cream to your nails.
Let is soak in for a few minutes and then clean under your nails with a nail file. Brush your nails with a nail brush or old toothbrush.
Shaving cream is inexpensive and safe to use in a variety of applications. Do be advised that for these tips you should use old fashioned shaving cream, not shaving gel.
It does not work the same way! Get the foam variety, and keep several cans on hand to help you deal with a host of everyday mishaps and challenges.
