There’s a lot of uses of Peanut Butter aside from spread in sandwiches. Here’s a list of surprising uses of peanut butter. And, if you have peanut allergy, most of these methods will work with a replacement. Try sunflower seed butter, because it’s usually the natural oils doing all the work.
1. Leather cleaner
Use peanut butter to clean up your leather furniture, shoes, purses, and more! Put a small amount on a soft cloth and rub it over the leather surface in a circular motion. The natural oils in the peanut butter will clean and shine your leather.
2. Odor Eliminator
Just put a tablespoon of smooth peanut butter in the frying pan (once your dinner has been taken out!) and fry it for a minute or two.
3. Gum Remover
Just rub a peanut butter over the gum, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wipe it all away with a cloth.
4. Windshield Cleaner
Rub some peanut butter into those stubborn spots and let it sit for ten minutes. Spray it off with a hose, and not only is the peanut butter gone, but so are the bug carcasses.
5. Hair Moisturizer
You can massage peanut butter right onto your scalp to moisturize your hair! Follow it up with shampoo, and be amazed at how shiny your hair can be.
6. Ant Bait
Mix two teaspoons of peanut butter, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, and a teaspoon of borax. Apply it wherever you’ve noticed ants coming in to your home. Be sure to keep your pets away from this bait, though.
7. Glue remover
Instead of scrubbing your hands raw with soap, or using a chemical to slough off the glue, use some peanut butter. The natural oils will loosen the glue, so it washes right off. This solution works for other glue-covered surfaces as well.
8. Mouse trap bait
Put a big spoonful at the end of a humane mousetrap, and you’ll get them out of your house in no time.
9. CD/DVD scratch repair
If you have a CD or DVD that keeps skipping, or won’t play, rub a little smooth peanut butter onto the scratch and wipe it away with a soft, dry cloth.
10. Shaving cream
If you’re all out of shaving cream, never fear! Smear on a thin layer of smooth peanut butter and shave as you normally would. The oils in the peanut butter keep the razor from nicking your face or legs, and also acts as a moisturizer!
