Olive Oil

Uses

 

Other than it being used in cooking and the health benefits of olive oil, it has many non conventional uses as well.

It helps in taming tangled hair as it moisturises the hair.

It can ease snoring as taking a sip of the oil helps in lubricating the throat muscles.

Silverware, copper ware, and other metals can be given a final rub with olive oil to prevent streaks and tarnish.

For furniture cleaning add a few drops on a cloth and wipe.

Stuck zippers can benefit from a rub of some olive oil on the teeth of the zipper.

It can also help in preventing squeaky hinges when lubricated.
