Unusual Uses For Common Items

10 Unusual Uses For Common Items

1.   Lip Balm- good for dry heals and toes.
2.   Hand Sanitizer- put on a cut when you're not near any soap and water.
3.   Hand wipe- kill a bug and clean up at the same time!
4.   Sandwich bags- in desperation I've used as gloves.
5.   Postage paid envelopes- they come in my junk mail and make good pieces
      of scrap paper. 
6.   Stamp sticker- left over sticker after using all of the stamps... use as tape.

Unusual Uses Poem

Lip balm for my toes
Hand sanitizer on my cut
Hand wipe to kill a bug and clean up all the guts
Sandwich bags for gloves
Postage paid envelopes as paper
Left over stamp sticker to use as tape
Rubbing alcohol cleans mirrors really great
Old toothbrush for the floor
I used permanent marker in my hair,
so I'm gray no more.

Use Shampoo for Hand Soap

Sometimes I use shampoo for hand soap. There are pros and cons to using
shampoo for hand soap.

         A 16 oz. bottle of an inexpensive shampoo can sometimes cost less than
         an 8 oz. container of hand soap.
         Shampoo comes in more colors than hand soap, so you can match any

          Shampoo is really drying to your hands, because it's not formulated for

          Very few inexpensive shampoos come with pumps.

Shampoo for Hand Soap Poem

If you decide to use shampoo for hand soap
I hope you understand...
If you use shampoo for too long
It will really dry out your hands.
Although you'll save some money
Just know that you'll pay the price.
If you use the shampoo for too long,
your hands will not feel very nice.

Active Ingredient In Deodorant

Do you read the back of your deodorant to see what the active ingredient is?
You'd be surprised how different they can be. Now the three types I will focus
on today are not the only ones out there, I just want to give you an idea of the

aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex GLY (15.2%)- good for the person
who hardly sweats at all or if you're not leaving the house and there's not much
of a chance that you will sweat. This deodorant doesn't irritate my underarms.
Out of the three, this one is the least expensive.

aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex GLY (20%)- If you know you will 
be sweating a lot you should get this one. This deodorant doesn't irritate me. 

aluminum zirconium trichlorohydrex GLY 20% (anhydrous)- If you
know you're going to sweat so much you might offend someone...get this one
for sure. The only draw back to this deodorant is if you use it for several days
in a row, your underarms may get some irritation. This one usually cost the

active ingredient in deodorant

                            ' Deo' B.O. Poem

Read the back of your 'deo'
to make sure it's strong enough for your B.O.
If you hardly sweat you'll be good with the weakest,
but if you use the wrong one you'll smell like a stink fest.
Suppose you'll be out in the heat
it's a good chance that you'll surely stink.
Be sure you buy the strongest 'deo' you can
or you may be left lonely by a smell others can't stand.

Favorite Products

Have you ever thought about all of the products you use every day? How
would you make it without your...toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, car, or
shoes? What about your food choices, what do you like to eat? Where do
you like to eat? I've been thinking about this and there are so many products
why not share the information?

I am a fan of poetry, so I will also be writing about products from a poet's
point of view.
