Turns out that your favorite go-to canola oil spray for non-stick cooking, like Pam Cooking Spray, also has some pretty stellar uses outside of the kitchen, too. Read ahead for a handful of surprisingly savvy ways to use cooking spray in your bathroom—yes, your bathroom—no skillet or cookie pans necessary. 1. Clean soap scum off your showerWho knew cooking spray could tackle soap scum buildup in your bathtub, shower, and sink? Since oil breaks down lime deposits, a quick spritz of cooking spray on your bathroom sink or shower tile will remove any gross grime in no time. Also leaves a coating that will repel water. 2. Dry nail polish almost instantlyBelieve it or not, cooking spray can help set your freshly painted manicure in minutes. All you have to do is spray a bit of cooking oil on your wet polish and then dip your finger in cold water for 30 seconds to score dry nails much faster than you would if you waited for them to air-dry. Your teenage girls will love this. 3. Clean paint and grease off your skinLooking for a foolproof way to remove paint and grease off your skin in a pinch? Spritz some nonstick cooking spray on your soiled skin, rub it in, and then wash it off with little soap and water to get rid of any pesky paint and grease in seconds. 4. Shine your faucetsNothing will make your bathroom fixtures glisten like a little bit of cooking spray. Spritz a tiny bit on your sink faucets and shower fixtures to rid them of buildup and allow them to really shine. Also leaving a fine coating that will repel water and future water spots.5. Clean your glass shower doorJust like nonstick cooking spray can remove tough grime buildup in your bathroom sink and tub, the same goes for cleaning your shower door, too. Simply spray a bit of oil directly on your dirty shower door to clear away the lime deposits and dirt real quick. Use a kitchen scrubby to clean off the crud. The fine coating left behind will repel water.6. Silence a squeaky bathroom doorDon't have any WD-40, all you need to silence a squeaky bathroom door is a tiny bit of non-stick cooking spray. Spritz a little oil directly onto the hinges of your bathroom door (or window) and quell those annoying noises for good.
I sell a lot of stuff on Ebay. Jewelry, silverware, serving sets, ceramic figurines, porcelain figurines, brass figurines, sneakers. I use white toothpaste (not gel) and a damp toothbrush. For large items I use a damp cloth. Also works on copper, brass, gold, silver, porcelain, ceramics, sneakers, plastics, etc. For my sales I needed one product for cleaning everything. I also used toothpaste to clean my daughters headlights. Works on removing water rings from furniture. These are only a handful of uses for toothpaste I chose that seem relevant here.
Got my bird houses made for my wreath. As in my Fall and Halloween wreaths, I need a large wreath for the space. Has to be three feet round. So I bought a Hoola Hoop, plastic table cloth, and a few bunches of fake flowers from Dollar Tree.
I saw so many solar light flowers being sold and I couldn't believe the prices. $10 and up. I knew I could do better. So I just decided to give a try and make my own. These are based on a set of three lights Bird and Blooms were giving away in one of their contests. I didn't win so I made my own.
I needed a console table off my front door. I planned on making my own, but couldn't decide on a design I wanted. Found a few designs I liked online, but wasn't too happy with them. Trash day is on Mondays so I go for a drive looking for things I can find. AMAZING WHAT PEOPLE THROW OUT! I happen to find this cheap MDF desk thrown out with some sofas and side chairs. One of those knock down ready to assemble kind. Looked like something I can work with.
A few years ago, my daughter and granddaughter lived with me after my daughter divorced. One Friday morning in October I noticed my granddaughter had a plastic grocery bag along with her backpack. I asked her whats in the bag. She said the jewelry box you made for me. I asked her why was she taking it to school? She said for show and tell. I gasped. I looked at my daughter and she shrugged her shoulders with a smile. I thought to myself, it wasn't that great of a box and she needed something to keep her tween jewelry in. The following Monday, my daughter said the Vice Principal needed to talk to her and if I could come along. When we got to the school the Vice Principal greeted us and took us into her office. She started to praise my granddaughter for her jewelry box presentation and how the class enjoyed it. But she said it was what was inside the box that really impressed her. My granddaughter had photos of some of my projects that she passed around the class. The Vice Principal proceeded to ask if I would consider building a mailbox for the school the students could use to "mail" Christmas cards to each other. They used a cardboard box covered with Christmas wrapping paper. I kind of was caught off guard and told her sure.
