Cooking oils such as vegetable oil and olive oil can be used for more than just cooking - and can save you some money. The vegetable oil, olive oil and sunflower oils that you have in your kitchen make great all natural cleansers. Here are just 5 things you can use cooking oils for around your house:
1. Got paint on your hands? Rub some cooking oil into your skin, then wash with warm water and soap.
2. Shine up your leather goods with vegetable oil. Just wipe with a damp cloth to remove dust from the item, then rub a drop of vegetable oil on the item using a soft clean cloth. Buff with a dry chamois if you like. This is great for scuffed leather shoes.
3. Make a scrubbing paste with some cooking oil and salt. Use it to clean cast iron pots and pans.
4. Make your own furniture polish with 2 cups olive oil or vegetable oil and lemon juice (one lemon should be enough.)
