Cleaning

1. Getting Rid of That Fishy Smell. Can’t get rid of that funky fish smell? After you’ve fried fish, put a dollop of peanut butter in the pan — it’ll absorb that lingering odor right up!

2. Cleaning Vinyl & Leather. Work the peanut butter in a circular motion on your leather/vinyl furniture and wipe away with a buffing cloth. As you may have guessed, this method will make your leather/vinyl smell like peanut butter. Mix it with a little perfumed oil to mask the smell.

3. Fixing Scratched DVDs & CDs. Work a little peanut butter onto a scratched disk and wipe away with a dry cloth. Voila!
