5 Unconventional Uses Of Shampoo

Is there anything more you can do with shampoo? Here are some unconventional uses of shampoo that you must try.

The shampoo is something that comes first in line with haircare. There are times when each bottle of shampoo has some left, and you just let it be and skip to the next bottle. Before throwing it away, here are some uses of shampoo that will surely amaze you. Read on to know them all.

Nail Cleanser

Your cuticles might benefit from a bit of shampoo (or conditioner) right before you clean them. Shampoo and conditioner will soften your cuticles, making it simpler to push them back or remove them, much like they do for your hair. To prepare your hands for a manicure, you may alternatively soak them in a solution of shampoo and water.

Shave Cream With Shampoo

Shaving cream may be made from leftover shampoo and conditioner. It doesn’t bother your skin and lathers effectively. You can save it in a bottle and use it to smoothen your unwanted hair removal process.

Takes Care Of Your Zipper

Before washing your clothing, use shampoo on the stains around the collar to avoid any lingering odors. If the zipper keeps getting stuck, apply a tiny amount of shampoo or conditioner with a Q-tip on both sides of the zipper teeth if the zipper keeps becoming stuck. It’ll move through the system with no issues. Using shampoo is the best way to remove the oil stains on your clothes since your skin and scalp produce the oil.

Comb Cleaner

Use shampoo to clean your hairbrushes and combs. Remove any stray hairs from the brush before washing it with soap and water. Before using them, wash them thoroughly and allow them to dry. Avoid soaking bristle brushes in water, but you can soak plastic brushes to eliminate hair product residue.

Clean Makeup Brushes With It

Makeup brushes may be cleaned with a small amount of shampoo in the palm of your hand. All you need to do is clean the brushes regularly to maintain the softness.

Home Cleaner

You may use shampoo as a general cleaner around the house since the components are pretty similar to detergent ones. Even a filthy oven grill doesn’t stand a chance against it.

Car Cleaner

Use a sponge and a bucket of water to wash your automobile with 14 spoons of shampoo mixed in the water. Shampoo can also be used as a makeup remover, but it’s best to stick to the car wash if you have sensitive skin. It is gentle yet cleans all the dust and dirt away.
