Want Some Cheap Fixes With Cornstarch?

You don't have to look very far but in your own kitchen to find some excellent products to help solve many household and beauty problems.  Cornstarch is one item you may think differently of after you read this post.

For starters, cornstarch makes a wonderful non-abrasive cleaner for tackling grease off of a wall.  Add some on a damp cloth and rub the spot to remove the mark until gone.

If you have floor boards that squeak, you sprinkle some cornstarch between them to stop that annoying sound.

You reach for your rubber gloves and hate the hassle you get from trying to pull them off because they stick.  Instead, you should sprinkle inside those gloves with cornstarch to correct that problem.

One of my favorite uses for cornstarch is for untangling knots in delicate chains on jewelry.  Rub some cornstarch on the knot and magically that stuck chain will come free!  This trick also works on knotted shoelaces and string.

Do you have feet that sweat a lot?  You can save on buying medicated foot powder if you just grab that box of cornstarch.  Shake some cornstarch into your socks each day to absorb excess moisture.  This helpful tip will keep those feet smelling fresher and prevent blisters!

Cornstarch is also a safe and natural dusting powder for your baby.  Using cornstarch will prevent that diaper rash problem without harming delicate baby skin from those unnecessary chemicals of commercial brands!

So be sure to keep more than one box of cornstarch on hand for multiple uses!  Cornstarch can get you out of a lot of sticky situations cheaply--that's why I'm nuts about it!
