Cotton balls don’t usually make it out of the bathroom. We use them to remove nail polish and makeup, to help clean cuts and scrapes.. but that’s about it. It’s too bad, because there are plenty of other fantastic uses for cotton balls. Click through to check out some of them.

1. Make the Fridge Smell Nice. Just can’t get rid of that funky smell in the fridge? Dampen a cotton ball with some vanilla extract and place it on a shelf towards the back of the fridge.
2. Combat Mildew. All those nooks and crannies in the bathroom are primo spots for mildew — and, of course, can be difficult to reach. Soak cotton balls in bleach, place it in that hard-to-reach spot, and let it sit there for a couple of hours. Rinse with warm water and the spot will be good as new!
3. Freshen up the Room. Before you vacuum, place a cotton ball soaked in your favorite scent in the vacuum cleaner’s bag. The scent will be slowly released into the room.
4. Protect Rubber Gloves. Your manicured nails may look fabulous, but they sure get in the way of doing the dishes! Don’t wreck another pair of rubber gloves. Instead, put some cotton balls in the tips of the gloves so your nails don’t tear them up.
