11 Uses For Mayonnaise That Will Make You Say “May-Oh My Gosh”

I know there are a lot of people in the world who think mayonnaise is gross, and frankly you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. Mayonnaise is nothing but a God-send condiment that can be used in more ways than you ever could have imagined.

I’m not just talking in the kitchen, either. As most of you know, mayo is the definitive choice over butter when making a grilled cheese, and can also make any dip a crowd-pleaser. But did you know there are ways you can use mayo around the house for non-food related tasks?

These are some of the lesser known uses for mayonnaise that’ll leave you saying “may-oh my gosh!”

For those of us that suffer from brittle and dry nails, it can be frustrating to spend money on treatments that really don’t work well. Luckily, mayonnaise is a great moisturizer for your nails! Coat your nails in mayo and let them sit for a while. The condiment also helps repair damaged cuticles, so it’s like a two-in-one deal!

Keeping in the beauty realm, you can use mayonnaise as an exfoliating treatment and moisturizer! Use it the same way you would any mask, and reap the rewards!

You can also use mayo to moisturize dry heels, elbows, knees, or whatever else is bothering you. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinse well.

Okay I’m going to have to stop with the mayo names, but this one is great for furniture! How many times have you had someone put a drink on your table WITHOUT using a coaster? I know, right? Rude. Those ring stains on wooden furniture can be erased using mayo! Apply a layer to the affected area and let it sit there for up to 48 hours (depending on how bad the stain is). Afterwards, wipe off the mayo and revel in the wonder that is a clean table!

If you’re the unlucky soul who gets stuck parking under a tree that produces a lot of sap, then I suggest you pay close attention to this one. Cover any tar or sap spots with mayonnaise and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Wipe it off with a clean cloth and you’re good to go!

Dryer Sheets Aren’t Only to Be Used in the Dryer

Most of us have a box of dryer sheets that’s kept in the laundry room cupboard somewhere, but did you know you can get so much more use out of them with things not even related to laundry?! From beauty tips to household cleaning, there isn’t anything you won’t be able to get done without the clever hacks of dryer sheets.

  1. Sharpen scissors
  2. Keep your toilet paper roll smelling fresh by placing a dryer sheet inside it.
  3. Use as a duster for blinds, baseboards and furniture.
  4. Get ‘gunk’ off your iron:  turn iron on lowest setting  and let warm up. Lay dryer sheet on ironing board and gently rub iron over it. The sheet will pick up all that ‘gunk’.
  5. Help remove pet hair from clothes by rubbing a dryer sheet on it.
  6. Remove smudges and and fingerprints from any glass surface.
  7. Clean water spots off chrome.
  8. Soak a dryer sheet in warm water with dirty paint brushes for easy cleaning.

Just when you thought it’s time for the garbage…..there’s a hack for that!

You’ve showered, your hair is styled, makeup is on, and the perfect outfit is picked out! You’re just about to walk out the door and then BAM! You look in the mirror and all you can see is white deodorant stains on your perfect black dress. Don’t stress…….we got a hack for that and so many other simple solutions!

  1. Put your jeans in a plastic bag and stick them in the freezer at night to remove bad odours. The freezer will kill most of the odour-causing bacteria, and you don’t have to worry about the dye in your denim fading from overzealous washing.
  2. Remove deodorant marks with your jeans. Rubbing the spot with a pair of light-wash jeans.
  3. Spray a small amount of vodka on your clothes to eliminate strong odours. If you don’t have time to wash a shirt before wearing it again but it has a strong, lingering smell, just spray on some vodka and let it dry. The alcohol will kill odour-causing bacteria.
  4. Fix foundation stains with a little bit of shaving cream. If you take off your shirt and accidentally smudge your makeup on the collar, just wipe a dollop of shaving cream on the spot to pretreat it before tossing it in the wash.
  5. Use hairspray to remove a lipstick stain. Spray the fabric (make sure it’s not dry-clean only) with hairspray, and let it sit for a few minutes. Dab the stain, and then toss it in the washer.
  6. Fix underwire that’s poking out of your bra with a patch of adhesive moleskin.
  7. Paint clear nail polish over a loose button thread to temporarily stop it from unraveling. No need to learn how to sew on a button just yet.
  8. Remove red wine stains with white wine. Soak the spot in white wine for a few minutes to pretreat the stain before washing.

Homemade Dryer Sheets Work So Much Better Than Brand Name Ones, And The Best Part Is That They’re Reusable

My family loves fabric softener and dryer sheets. They love it so much that my daughter, who is slightly allergic to dryer sheets, would rather get a little rash than have her clothes not smelling like anything. (A little excessive, I know.)

The reality is, when your clothes come out of the dryer, you expect them to be warm, soft and smell great. Unfortunately, most brand name dryer sheets are loaded with toxic chemicals that can be easily absorbed through your skin.

There was an easy solution to all this all along, and I’ve finally been able to make my own reusable and non-toxic dryer sheets. They’re easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients in your home already!

If you’re in love with the fabric softener you already have, I’ve also provided a way to make a reusable dyer sheets that smell like your favorite brand.

8 Common Mistakes You Make When Applying Deodorant

Since puberty, we’ve been buying and applying deodorant like there’s no tomorrow. We thought that all our underarm problems would be solved with a simple deodorant swipe, but unfortunately, most of us still struggle with smelly and sweaty armpits after all these years.

The good news is that there are some quick fixes to keep the sweat and smell at bay.

Here are eight common mistakes you make when applying deodorant that no one told you about.

1. You’re using the wrong type of deodorant for your skin.

What many people are unaware of is that deodorant and antiperspirant are not the same thing. Deodorants eliminate odor, while antiperspirants block sweat. That being said, you want to make sure you find a deodorant that works best for your body. Sometimes you’ll have to endure that trial and error process until you find the best fit.

2. You’ve been using the same type of deodorant for years.

We’re all guilty of this one. Once we find something that works once, we tend to stick to it forever. The thing is, after some time, your sweat glands start to adapt and develop a resistance to the same brand of deodorant or antiperspirant that you use. If you notice that you’re sweating and smelly more often, it’s probably not caused by a change in your hormones, but because you’re still rocking the same deodorant.

3. You’re not applying enough.

Some of us are hesitant to apply a lot of deodorant in fear of all the chemicals inside of them, but you’re better off not applying it at all if you’re not going to swipe a few times. Make sure to cover your whole underarm area, but know when to stop!

4. You’re applying when your skin is wet.

It’s a good idea to apply deodorant when your skin is clean, but not right after you hop out of the shower and you’re dripping wet. You want to make sure your skin is free of moisturize before you apply. That’s how deodorants work best to keep you dry and smelling fresh all day long.

We’re all guilty of doing at least one of these next mistakes!

Sponges Aren’t Just for Cleaning! Check out All These Hacks!

When we think about using an everyday sponge, our minds usually go directly to cleaning. However, did you know about all the other amazing sponge hacks there are out there? From cleaning to storing your jewelry….there’s a hack for all!

Pin Cushion – Store with sewing items and use as a cushion for sewing pins.

Protect your walls – Trying to remove nails can leave dents and marks on your walls. Instead, try placing a sponge below the nail when you use your hammer to prevent marks and scuffs.

Microwave Cleaner – Cleaning your microwave has never been easier! Submerge your sponge in water and squeeze out excess. Slice a lemon in half and squeeze one half of it’s juices on the sponge. Place in the microwave for 30 seconds and then wipe clean!

Ring Holder – Using an old mint tin, cut your sponge to size and then place inside. Using a box cutter, make small slices in the sponge to fit rings.

Ice Pack – Submerge your sponge in water, and squeeze out only 70% of water. Place the sponge into a ziplock bag and place in the freezer. Use as an ice pack for bumps and bruises or use as an ice pack to keep your lunch cool.

Oven cleaner – Using a sharp knife, slice two slits into the sponge going vertically about 95% of the way through. Then slice 3 slits into the sponge going horizontally about 95% of the way through. Submerge the sponge into warm soapy water, squeeze it out, and start cleaning those oven grills!

Bottle Cleaner – Slice your sponge in half, and then at the top of both ends, use a knife to create a slice to insert a small magnet into each. Use a hot glue gun to seal the sponge shut keeping the magnets in place. Drop one half into the bottle, and using the other outside the bottle.

Nail Polish Remover – Cut your sponge in half and place both pieces into a mini sized mason jar, ensuring you can still place the lid on top for storage. Once both pieces are in, fill the jar with nail polish remover and allow the sponges to absorb it. Place your fingers in there, wiggle them around, and voila! Nail polish removed!

The Step by Step Explanation on How Contractions Work!

Have you ever wondered what is happening inside your body when you are in labor? While it can be hard to wrap your head around what is actually happening in the moment, it’s actually a really cool experience that your body is going through.

As a mom of a two-year-old daughter, I remember going into the delivery room not really knowing what to expect. I let the nurses and doctors guide me through the birth of my baby and luckily for me, it went off without a hitch. I’m not going to pretend that the 26 hours of labor that I experienced was like a walk in the park, but after hearing horror stories about childbirth, it could have been a lot worse.

Now that I am embarking on my second journey into the labor and delivery ward, I can’t help but notice guides and tips on childbirth online.

This one demo is a great visual about what happens to your body while you’re getting ready to deliver a child.

  • Ping Pong Ball
  • Balloon
  1. First thing you do is get the ping pong ball inside of the balloon. Do this by stretching the opening and getting your fingers to the bottom of the balloon to hold it open to fit the ping pong ball inside.
  2. Then inflate the balloon half way.
  3. Allow the ball to rest at the base of the balloon and tug on the neck to prevent the air from escaping.
  4. Now if you squeeze the size of the balloon you can see that not much is happening to the ball and the neck of the balloon. This simulates Braxton Hicks contractions that happens in the late-stage of pregnancy.
  5. Real contractions start at the top of the balloon. As the contractions start, the muscle fibers at the top get shorter and thinner which squeeze the top and pull on the side of the uterus.
  6. Just like regular contractions, if you squeeze and let go slowly you will see the next the balloon get shorter and thinner. This is like your cervix during early labor. The focus is on shorten and thinning instead of dilation.
  7. Once the neck of the balloon is short and thin, that’s when you work on dilating the cervix.
  8. Just like actual labor, you squeeze the balloon gently and then one more push…and the baby is here!

Having gone through childbirth once before doesn’t change my outlook as I prepare to head back into the hospital in a few weeks to welcome my baby boy. It merely gives me one more story about how to bring a child into the world.

This is a great visual to show your partner, friends or family members so they can actually see what is happening to the body when a baby is being born.
