5 household uses for shaving foam
When facial hair starts to get itchy, it's definitely time for a quick shave. Next to that nearly all squeezed out tube of toothpaste, shaving foam will also have its place in the bathroom of anyone who regularly picks up a razor. But shaving foam is not just good for shaving — it can also easily replace other household products. In many cases, it works even better than the original. You don't necessarily need a man around the house to stock up on shaving foam, as these five astonishing ideas will show.
No one likes squeaky doors — except maybe horror film fans. But all too often, you don't have any lubricating oil to hand — but a short trip to the bathroom will solve this problem. Apply it, leave it to work, wipe it off, and you're done!
When you don't have any other cleaning agents available, water-repelling shaving foam makes for gleaming fixtures and fittings in the bathroom.
3. The bathroom mirror
We've all been there: you want to check yourself out in the mirror after a refreshing shower to moisturize or brush your teeth, but the mirror is fogged up. Trying to solve the problem with a hand towel only works temporarily — because it leaves smears on the mirror surface that'll be there next time you use it.
Whereas, anyone who cleans their mirror regularly with shaving foam can enjoy a mirror that does not steam up. This is because the shaving foam creates a thin film on the surface of the mirror that prevents hot water droplets from settling there.
4. Stains on shirts
When sauces like mustard land on shirts, they pose one of the greatest challenges in the laundry room.
However, anyone who immediately wipes it off and then rubs the impact site clean with a little shaving foam will find after a few minutes that this mishap is no longer worth mentioning.
5. After painting
It's a common problem when painting. Despite all your careful preparations, do you find that paint still sticks to your hands?
Terpentine and similar substances can help with this, but a little shaving foam also does the trick. The paint easily comes off your skin, without irritation.
Finding a way to keep the mirror clear is nothing short of a bathroom miracle. Of all the products that help you around the house, how many more have hidden talents you never knew about?
