15 Surprising Uses for Butter

 

Beauty & Fashion

Detangle Jewelry Lessen the frustration of detangling necklaces and bracelets by rubbing butter on the entwined areas. Use a small pointy object to detangle.

Strengthen Your Nails Do you have weak, brittle & dry nails? Before bedtime, Rub butter on the nail beds and put on some cotton gloves. In the morning, you should see improvements in your nail strength.

Get A Tight Ring Off No need to rush to the jeweler if your ring won’t budge — apply butter to the area and it’ll (hopefully) slip right off.

Soothe Dry Skin If you’re in a pinch, butter is a great substitute for creams and lotions. You can even use it as a shaving cream.

Jeremiah Z.,

Plastic leaches into foods; especially, such fragile and thin plastic. Let me answer the question that comes to all of us, I have no idea, why the corporations make the product to be in contact with food and The FDA allows it.
