10 Genius Uses For Vaseline That Will Make You Want To Try Them All

Great Things First

Vaseline got its start when Robert Chesebrough got wind that oil workers had been using an unrefined form of petroleum jelly to heal wounded and burnt skin.

After figuring out how to refine it into a transparent gel, he patented Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in 1865. Since then, we've been using it for everything from preventing diaper rash to making our very own lip balm!

On Your Razors

Dry off your razor and then rub each blade with Vaseline. Make sure they are completely dry after you wipe the Vaseline off so that your razor doesn't rust!

Make Up Remover

Rub some onto a cotton pad and gently swipe away your makeup. It will remove false eyelash glue and even waterproof mascara!

Flavored Lip Balm

Who doesn't love a good lip balm? If you're like me, you probably lose them before the tube is finished.

Rather than spending money on buying new ones, why not make your own with some tasty skittles and vaseline?

Tired of losing the fight with a stuck zipper? Petroleum Jelly has got you covered!

There's nothing better than finding other, practical uses for a simple household object.

Vaseline isn't just a great beauty staple, it's also great for loosening stuck zippers and getting out those stuck-on makeup stains!

Grease The Teeth

Fix a stubborn, stuck zipper by rubbing some Vaseline on both sides of the zipper teeth.

Long Lasting Perfume

Increase the lifespan of your perfume by rubbing a bit of Vaseline on your wrists and neck before spraying perfume.

Prevent Messy Nail Polish

Get the perfect manicure by rubbing some Vaseline around the nail bed before painting your nails.

To prevent the cap from sticking when you close it, rub the top of the top of the nail polish bottle with Vaseline.

Exfoliate Your Lips

As the weather gets cooler, our skin begins to lose some of its moisture. Slough off that dead skin and get perfectly soft lips with this simple DIY lip scrub!

Remove Makeup Stains

Rub some Vaseline into a damp washcloth and then wipe over makeup stains on your clothes, pillow cases, blankets and sheets!

Heal Your Heels

Smooth some Vaseline onto your cracked heels and then slip on some socks. Do this nightly before bed and you should see results in no time!
