WHAT DO YOU USE AVON SKIN SO SOFT FOR??

One of the best products out there that I have ever tried was Skin So Soft Bath Oil by Avon. Not only is Skin So Soft an awesome bath oil, it also has more uses that will help make your life easier in the home. Please keep in mind that this product has only been tested as a bath oil and all the other uses are from consumers. Avon does not claim that this product is anything but bath oil. Please use at your own risk. I personally have tried some of these, and they do work great! Here is a list of ways that you can use the skin in your house!

1. Cleans permanent ink off stamps.

2. Bugs/Ants, sponge around doors, windows, and on screens to keep crawling bugs out.

3. Place small amount in cleaning water for cupboards to keep ants out.

4. Put it in one of the bottles that you attach to your backyard hose and then spray down the back yard! Will cut down on ants, mosquitoes and other creepy
crawlies.

5. Place a small amount in your mop water to keep bugs out and floors fresh.

6. Spray on spiders and ants to kill.

7. Spray into air to use as air deodorizer.

8. Wipe down vinyl surfaces inside your car. Cleans nicely and removes smoke odors left by cigarette smokers and keeps surfaces soft and prevents cracking.

9. Use a SSS towel as an automotive air freshener.

10. Shines vehicle tires

11. Prior to traveling rub SSS on headlights/grill to make insects and bugs easier to remove.

12. Removes tar spots from the car without damage to the paint.

13. Cleans and Conditions natural wood.

14. Cleans Cherry wood cabinets.

15. Removes glue and gum left from price tags and labels from glass, metals, and most plastics.

16. Remove soap scum from shower doors, curtains, bathroom fixtures, and kitchen fixtures.

17. Removes lime and hard water deposits from fixtures, tile, shower doors and windows

18. Oil lubricant for fitting pipe joints that won't slip together.

19. Clean ink off most vinyl and painted surfaces.

20. It cleans heavy oil and grease from nonporous surfaces.

21. Rub on brass ornaments or figurines to help keep them from turning dark

22. Removes crayon from appliances and most painted surfaces.

23. Use small amount to clean leather; it will also keep it soft and supple.

24. Use it on your air conditioning screen (filter)--your incoming air will smell fresher and the filter is easier to clean.

25. It cleans paintbrushes easily and leaves them soft as new.

26. It removes gum from carpets.

27. Removes scuffmarks from patent leather shoes

28. Place small amount on running rails for sliding glass doors and windows.

29. Removes liquid nail (paneling glue).

30. Removes candle wax from furniture, carpets and clothing.

31. Furniture Polish.

32. cuts grease and cleans dirt from range hoods

33. Add a capful to wash water of clothes...acts as a fabric softener and keeps the bugs off clothes.

34. Removes tree Sap.

35. Spray on orchids, flowers, and other plants to keep bugs away.

36. In the Kids rooms if a child wets the bed, spray the bedding and sheets before washing and will give it a fresh clean smell.

i had only heard of using it as a bug repellant, I might have to print this list off and use it to help push the product, and yes they have new scents now that are oh so much better than the original.
