Did you know that it could do this?

Did you know that you could keep bugs from sticking to your bumper by spraying cooking spray on it before you go on that long drive?

Are there any other "foods" that you can use in unusual ways?

Yes.. I use lemon juice mixed w/ 1 crushed aspirin as a very gentle but highly effective exfoliant once a week.. I learned it on Dr. Oz... and it's perfect for me because I have tried quite a few other store bought exfoliants including ones that are allegedly for sensitive skin and they irritate my skin HORRIBLY on first use ... but this homemade one works and doesn't hurt my skin. : )

If you spill hair wax on wood olive oil will get it right off with no scrubbing, it just comes off

 I used to hear this years ago, but then there were many reports that yes, the bugs will come off, but getting the spray oil to come off after it's been in the sun is almost impossible, even the car wash guys have a problem with it.  I'm glad I saw the second reports of problems before trying this.

That is odd.

You can use mayonnaise to remove bumper stickers.

With the cooking oil and mayo they will both needed to be cleaned off and Dawn dishwashing liquid has worked well. Any good quality dish liquid should work. Most car washes don't use soap that will cut oil (it's not really a need for them) so it makes sense that what they use won't remove it.

Interesting!

We use coconut oil for just about everything.
