    Default Uses for Olive Oil

    USE OLIVE OIL TO:
    1. Shave. Olive oil can provide a closer shave when used in place of shaving
    cream.
    2. Shine stainless steel. Many cleaning standbys, such as ammonia, can dull
    and even corrode chrome and stainless steel. Olive oil, however, is a safe
    and effective shining agent.
    3. Remove eye makeup. Dab a little under the eyes and rinse off with a
    washcloth.
    4. Prevent wax from sticking to a candle holder. Rub a thin coat on the base
    of the holder before inserting a candle. Dripped wax should peel away easily.
    5. Care for your pet. Add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon to your catís food to help
    prevent hair balls.
    6. Moisturize cuticles. Apply a small amount of olive oil to the nail beds.
    7. Treat dry skin. Rub a thin layer over the skin after a shower or a waxing.
    8. Unstick a zipper. Using a Q-tip, apply a drop to lubricate the teeth.
    (Avoid touching the fabric.) The zipper should move up and down freely.
    9. Dust wooden furniture. Apply a bit of oil to a cloth and wipe.
    10. Silence squeaky doors. Lubricate hinges by applying a small dab to a
    cloth, then wiping the top of the hinges so that the oil runs down the sides

    Also great for cooking.
    I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.
