So many times we have men in the house who have umpteen number of shaving creams lying around in the house. Some they are not using as they are after one particular brand they opened and some expire. But ladies, do not throw them away as they have many uses even if their expiry date says it otherwise. Here is what you can do with them.

Remove Stains On Carpet Or Fabrics

Stains on our carpets and upholstery break our hearts as they ruin the entire look. But worry not, as we have that old shaving cream in the house. You need not purchase anything additional. Spray the cream on the marks and let them dry. Then take a clean cloth or vacuum cleaner and wipe when the cream has dried up. You can use this method on your car seat covers as well. 

Oven Cleaning
