Household Superheroes – Petroleum Jelly

This is definitely my favourite household superhero! It’s extremely cheap to buy and so versatile – check out my list.

  1. Use it on nappy rash – it’s as effective as your named brand products (if not more effective) but at a fraction of the price. No nasty perfumes or colourings either!
  2. Rub it on the threads of a bottle cap to create a water-tight seal.
  3. Replace your usual lip balm with it.
  4. Add some to your first aid box – rubbing it into small cuts helps them to heal faster. Particularly useful for someone as clumsy as me!
  5. Rub liberally on hands or feet before going to bed. Cover with moisturizing gloves/socks and reap the rewards the morning after!
