Peanut butter is so much more than just a spread.
It has a lot of surprising uses.
Below are some of the hacks this protein-rich spread can perform.
1. Face mask
Whatever your skin type there’s a peanut butter facial recipe that’ll work for you. They’re fun, inexpensive and best of all completely natural.
Peanut butter can be used as a substitute for shaving foam. The oils are great for the skin.
3. Hair moisturiser
Smooth peanut butter can be applied on the hair and scalp. The natural oils will work their magic.
Peanut butter can also act as a lubricant. It can be applied on door hinges and can also be used on blades and tools.
5. Leather cleaner
The natural oils in peanut butter help smooth and shine tired leather. Try it on your shoes some time; dab a small amount on a soft cloth then rub in circular motions.
6. Repair scratches in wood
Peanut butter can be used to heal wood damaged by a scratch.
Rub some on the damaged area and leave for 30 minutes or more, then wipe with a clean cloth.
7. Remove chewing gum
Peanut butter can be used to remove an offending gum.
Rub the peanut butter on the gum and allow to sit for a couple of minutes then wipe away.
8. Butter substitute
Peanut butter can be used as a substitute for butter, not for only bread, but for also cooking.
