    As I live and breathe..... I would never have guessed there were so many uses for used oil, think I like the cinnamon soap idea best, but have seen the bio car users and their cars smell like cooking french fries, LOL.... https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Uses+for+used+cooking+oil

    restaurants run their used oil stuff thru a filter.. gets the crumbs out. i would try a fine mesh screen type i have an el cheapo from the hardware store.
    , this will catch a lot of the crumbs left in your oil the oil has to be cold as long as the oil doesn t smell rancid you should be able to use it again for cooking

    Why would you want to because oil begins to smell after use and that smell can be transferred to other foods.

    Store the used oil in a sealed and light-proof container for up to 3 months. For best quality, filter and refrigerate used frying oil that you want to use again. If the oil is clouded or if the oil starts to foam or has a foul odor, taste, or smell, discard it. I keep my old plastic coffee cans for storing the oil in after use.

    If you are not going to use the vegetable oil for cooking any longer, the following 5 New Uses for Vegetable Oil came from the website
    KEY LOCK HELPER Does the lock on your front door never want to give up your house key? Try wiping your key down with some vegetable oil. It acts as a lubricant, helping the key to get into the lock more freely.
    HAIR MOISTURIZER You can use vegetable oil as a deep conditioning treatment. Just take about half a cup of oil and warm it at 50% power in the microwave until it’s just above room temperature. Massage the vegetable oil into your hair, shampoo and then rinse.
    CAR CLEANER Whether you are trying to get rid of the brake dust that accumulates on your tires and hub caps, or the bugs, dirt or pollen that always stick to your car’s grill and wind shield, skip the special auto cleaners and use vegetable oil instead. Pour a tiny bit onto a paper towel or a rag, and wipe down these surfaces. The vegetable oil helps wipe the gunk away while creating a car-safe coating that future debris won’t stick to.
    NON-STICK SHOVELS With all the spring/summer gardening and yard work, you can use vegetable oil to coat your shovels and trowels. This helps prevent dirt from clumping on your tools. You can also do this trick to your lawnmower blades so grass doesn’t stick to them. If you are in a pinch, you can also coat the “working parts” of your hand tools with vegetable cooking spray.
    SEASON YOUR POTS AND PANS This might not be the most groundbreaking of tips, but you can use vegetable oil to season a new skillet. A light coating of vegetable oil helps protect the pan. Although there are very many different ways to season it, this is my preferred: After washing the pan for the first time, rub a little bit of vegetable oil over the surface of the pan and the sides. You don’t have to worry about the bottom.

    Lastly, remember, once your oil is caput, don't pour it down the drain or on the earth. That's bad for your pipes and bad for the environment. Do place it back in that resealable container and throw it away. For bonus points (and good oil karma), find out where you can recycle cooking oil in your area.

    I would strain it, and use it for furniture polish. Put a tiny amount on the rag and dust. Wipe with paper towel to buff the oil off.
