If your ever outta shaving cream, a thin layer of hair conditioner will do the trick.

I've tried and my hubby has tried on his face and no irritation (of course we did with a new razor). Wouldn't know about doing it with a used blade.

I guess if we go with that, I use aloe vera as gel for my hair and as shaving cream.

YES! I've used conditioner to shave! I actually prefer it over shaving cream. Leaves the skin silky smoove!!


I use wax warmers in my home and saw a pin on Pinterest that you could use those Downy Unstoppable beads in them....so I tried it, and it works wonderfully!

I keep a small floor sweeper/vacuum in my bedroom plugged in for quick pick ups.

A toe separator used to separate the wires behind the tv.

Alcohol.

I use alcohol to clean my mirrors/glass around the house. Gets them nice and clean without the Windex streaks.

I also use it to prevent shoes/sneaks from getting stinky. Just spray 'em with alcohol a bit and let em dry.
