Fix a stuck zipper
The most annoying situation that according to Murphy's Law will happen at the most inconvenient timing. To get on top of things, dab a cotton swab into olive oil and rub on the zipper's teeth trying to avoid staining the fabric. Problem fixed (in 90% of the situations).
Bring your old rain boots back to life.
If you are getting a lot of wear out of your rubber boots, especially in harsh weather conditions you are probably familiar with the white marks that prove how much you love them. Keep the love but get rid of the marks by rubbing olive oil on the boots with a clean rug.
Peel off stickers
You know those cute jars that you would love to reuse but can’t seem to find a way to remove the stubborn stickers? Apply some olive oil, let it soak for a while and it should peer right off! It works really well with price tags as well!
Revive wooden furniture
This is a great tip, especially for antique lovers! You have rescued unique wooden pieces from flea markets and don't know how to polish them and make them look alive again? Wiping wooden furniture with olive oil is an old trick but we felt the need to share, as it's a really, really good one!
Healthy pet hair
Add a few drops of olive oil to your dog’s or cat’s food and watch their coat become glossier and healthier by the day. If you would like to know more about how olive oil can help your pet’s health, please let us know and we will be sharing more tips and facts!
Remove gum from hair
Scary situation but definitely reversible! Soak the gum into a generous amount of olive oil for 10 minutes and gently remove the gum piece by piece. No need for scissors or tears this time! I wish we knew this as kids!
Remove stubborn makeup
Waterproof mascara and eyeliner are the toughest makeup products to remove at the end of the day. And we get it, you just came home from a long day at the office (hmm, or partying all night, ok) and you have zero tolerance or energy to spend in taking off the makeup that stubbornly refuses to come off. Olive oil works wonders here as well while taking excellent care of your skin at the same time. A simple cotton pad with olive oil will leave you with a makeup-free face in no time. #NOFILTER needed.
