Four Non-Food Uses for Peanut Butter

Peanut butter is delicious on a sandwich with jelly, on toast, or a lot of other ways, but peanut butter has more uses than helping our food cravings. Here are four other uses for peanut butter.

Getting Gum Out of Hair

Anyone with children probably has experience with this method of gum removal. Whether it’s intentional, or by mistake, parents will sometimes find bubble gum in their child’s hair. If you find yourself in this situation and you don’t want to cut anyone’s hair, grab the peanut butter. The oils in the peanut butter help get the gum out of hair. Click here for a demonstration.

Cleanup After Crafts

The oils in peanut butter aren’t only good for removing gum. They can break down glue. After a day of arts and crafts, your hands are covered in dried glue. This is where chunky peanut butter will come in handy. The nuts in the peanut butter will help remove the glue after the oils loosen it up. After you clean up, have a sandwich. Just don’t use the peanut butter on your hands.

Bait on a Hook

If you enjoy fishing for carp, peanut butter is a great form of bait. Mix peanut butter with bread and make a ball. Fit that on to your fishing hook and grab the net, because the fish will be biting. Peanut butter is also a great form of bait because it will melt away, there’s less cleanup.

Wood Restoration

Wood furniture looks great when it’s brand new, but after years of use, and exposure to children and pets, it can scratch and wear. Spread a little peanut butter on the scratch and leave it for around an hour. Rub the peanut butter off with a cloth. It may not remove the blemish entirely, but it will be much harder to see.
