Prevent fogging glass

To prevent your bathroom mirror from fogging up apply a thin layer of shaving cream and then wipe it off. You can also use this trick on your car windows or spectacles too.  

Squeaky clean hands

If your hands are covered in paint or grease, try scrubbing them with shaving foam. It will also remove any stray nail polish from your fingers if you weren’t too accurate when painting your nails.  

Polish stainless steel and make chrome shine

To polish stainless steel or chrome without harsh chemicals, wipe them down with shaving cream on a clean rag. It’s especially handy at removing tough-to-get-rid-of hard water stains on bathroom fixtures.

Make fabric and carpet stains disappear

Spray a bit of shaving cream on carpet or upholstery stains, allow them to dry, and then blot clean with a damp cloth or vacuum up when the cream has dried. You can also use it on upholstery in the car.

No more squeaky door!

Apply some shaving cream to the hinges, wipe clean and listen to …. no squeaking!

Banish stinky smells

Get rid of bathroom smells. Clean the basin of your loo and the surrounding floor (if there are those in your family who don’t have a great aim!) with shaving foam to eliminate smells.  

Ungrime your grout

Add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice to a cup of shaving foam and mix. Spread onto your grout and leave for a few minutes. Scrub away with an old toothbrush and your grout will look as good as new!
