12 Surprising Ways To Use Vaseline
Vaseline has been by my side since day one. It has brought so much good and one bad into my life. My mom used it on me all the time when I was a baby, and she said it works wonders. I still use it now whenever I have severely chapped lips, and it definitely brings them back to life. The one bad experience I have had with Vaseline is that I applied it all over my hair when I was a toddler. I don’t remember doing that, but my parents and siblings never fail to remind me. My parents had a lot of difficulties trying to get it out of my hair, so they ended up shaving it off. I looked like a boy for a few months.
Thankfully, I have not been traumatized from that situation because I need Vaseline in my life. It’s so affordable and I’m finding different ways to use it every day. Vaseline is a universal product and this list just goes to show you! Here are 12 different ways that you can use Vaseline. I really want to try out #10!
1. Runny nose
Having a runny nose sucks, but what sucks even more is the aftermath. My nose gets dried out from all the rubbing I do with a tissue. Ouch! The next time I have a runny nose, I’m going to apply Vaseline all over it to prevent it from drying out. This will definitely be a lifesaver.
2. Soft feet
Whether you have cracked heels or not, you should definitely try this hack out. Before you go to bed, apply Vaseline all over your heels and then slip on a pair of socks. Take off your socks the next morning, and your heels will look and feel hydrated!

Razors can get expensive, so keep yours intact by applying a thin layer of Vaseline onto the blades between uses. This is so smart and it will save you many trips to the drugstore.
4. Scuffed shoes
After spending a buttload of money on shoes, it’s so annoying when they get scuffed up! An awesome way to get your shoes looking brand new is by buffing Vaseline onto them. I’m going to do this to all my sneakers when I get home.
5. Body scrub
Here’s an awesome way to pamper yourself with Vaseline! Mix it up with Kosher salt and exfoliate your body with it. So easy and very affordable.
6. Hair dye
Dye your hair, not your skin. Protect your skin from the dye by applying Vaseline around your hairline and ears. Vaseline has a thick consistency so it will block the color from seeping onto your skin.
7. Pumpkin carvings
Carving out pumpkins is tough for me. If I can carve out eyes and a mouth, then that is good enough. If you put a ton of effort into your pumpkin and want to preserve your work, then rub Vaseline onto all the places you carved. The Vaseline will prevent your pumpkin from drying and rotting. Who cares if Halloween is over! Show off your hard work!
8. Shower curtain
Prevent your shower rings from getting stuck by applying Vaseline onto your shower curtain rod. So smart!
9. Removing Tight rings
I have done a few questionable things in my life. One of those things is putting on rings that don’t fit my fingers. The ring will go on, but it’s the taking it off part that I have difficulty with. When the ring doesn’t come off, I go into a state of panic, especially if the ring is not mine! The next time this happens to me (I’m sure it will happen again), I’m going to apply Vaseline all over my finger. The Vaseline will help the ring slip right off.
10. Lip stain
You can make your own lip stain with Vaseline by mixing it up with Kool-Aid powder. This is so cool and you can even do it with other colors, too. Purple would look sweet!
11. Fake eyelashes
Falsies can be super annoying to remove! You want to get them off without pulling out any of your lashes. An awesome way to remove falsies is by rubbing a bit of Vaseline onto your lashline. I definitely want to try this hack out next time!
12. Lip scrub
Exfoliating your lips is a must, so here is an easy and affordable way to make a lip scrub. All you have to do is mix up all the ingredients! I made my own and it works great.
