So grab that stick, and let's go make Paula Deen proud!
Step 1: De-Sticks
After your in-home wax treatment, your legs are hair-free but still have some waxy remnants. Just like with the glue, rub a bit of butter on it, and the whole mess will wash off with soap and water.
Gum in your hair? Never fear! Apply softened butter to your locks, and the bubble gum will glide off pain-free.
Maybe you parked your car under and especially sappy tree, or perhaps got a bit over-enthusiastic while tree-hugging. If you've got sap all over, dislodge it by rubbing some soft butter on the spot with a cloth. Wipe away, and wash with soap and water.
If you're needing to cut up some sticky food (pies, dates, toffee, marshmallows, etc) spread a knife very thinly with butter before slicing in. It will slide through easily without sticking - and add a few more delicious calories to your plate.
Step 2: Around the House
To shine up cast iron, a small dab of butter on a cotton rag will make your metal look like new. This works well with other metals, as well.
Butter can also be used to add shine to your leather baseball gloves, jackets, belts, wallets, purses, etc. Because butter contains proteins, it has plenty of amino acids and won't hurt the leather. Simply rub a small amount of butter on your leather goods for a nice shine.
