Vaseline | 100 nifty ways to save with Vaseline

Vaseline is a nifty little product. If you were stuck on a desert island you would want to make sure you took a tub of Vaseline with you. The versatility of this product is incredible and it’s a bit of a girl’s best friend in everyday life! Keep a tub in your bag for all kinds of emergency situations!

If you add Vaseline to your neck before spraying perfume on, your perfume will last longer! So next time you decide you want to flick your hair and waft past an admirer, seal the deal with a dab of Vassy!

Vaseline as chocolate lip-gloss!

Also, next time you run up the shops for a block of Chocolate on a Friday night save a piece! Melt that little piece of Chocolate down (you can use dark or white chocolate) and mix it with some Vaseline. You’ll have some instant, delicious tasting Chocolate lip-gloss! Alternatively, buy mint chocolate and you’ll have Choc mint lip-gloss. Your lips will fee choc-delicious! So kissable…

Perhaps you want to look more radiant today even though you don’t feel that way? This is easy with Vaseline! Simply dab a little on the cheeks with a tiny amount of blush for a glossy, radiant look in seconds! Add this action to your sticky perfume trick above and you’ll be feeling fly-as-Beyonce-in-a-video sister!

There are also less glamourous (but very money-saving!) tricks for using Vaseline. You can add Vaseline to dandruff on your scalp to lessen the itchiness, which is usually caused by a dry scalp. Or you can add this amazing stuff to lotions to extend their life and it will help protect cuts and burns.

Vaseline is also called Petroleum Jelly

Vaseline also has another name and is also referred to as Petroleum Jelly and was invented by a clever man called Robert Chesebrough in 1872. He called it ‘new and useful’ and named it Vaseline.  He’d got the idea after visiting oil rigs, where the pumps produced a residue called ‘rod wax.’ Those oil rig guys had been putting the stuff on their cuts and burns for years before Rob discovered it!

He took it home, developed it, stuck his label on it and I’m guessing the family are pretty rich from the sticky stuff now.

Says a lot of executing a great idea eh?

The next best thing about a tub of Vaseline is the price! It’s minimal! I recommend keeping a bulk tub at home and decanting a little into a smaller tub for carrying in your bag.

Access this great list of 100 ways with Vaseline on your phone or keep it handy in the bathroom or shed for quick reference. You will be amazed at all the uses this little tub of stickiness can do.

Have fun and get sticky with it!

Vaseline is cheap and handy!

Keep this list handy when getting ready to go out and keep a copy in the laundry or shed for quick reference.
