Lip balm can protect your lips from the sun and the wind, but did you there are so many other uses for it around your home?

Lip blam works great as a cuticle cream. Rub lip balm into your nails and cuticles every day to keep them soft and moisturized.

If someone in the house has dry cracked skin on their nose from a cold, smear a little lip balm on the sore skin, it will moisturize the skin and protect it from further cracking.

Nick yourself shaving? Get a paper cut? Spread some lip balm over the cut, it will ease the pain and help it heal faster.

Is your ring stuck on your finger? Smear some lip balm over your finger and the ring will slip right off.

Need a quick shine on your shoes? Spread some lip balm on the leather and then use a soft cloth to buff them to a shine!

Before you screw a bulb into an outdoor fixture, spread some lip balm over the threads, it will prevent corrosion and keep the bulb from getting stuck.

Price tag or sticker stuck? Spread some lip balm over the sticker and let it sit for a few minutes then use a credit card or a putty knife to remove the sticker!

Keep a dedicated tube of lip balm in your home to use all over your house. I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
