Ah, mayonnaise. How delicious festive salads and everyday sandwiches are with him. They say it is impossible to spoil a dish if it is seasoned with this sauce. Did you know that it can be used for more than just cooking? Sometimes he can help out even in the most difficult situations and become another patron in the arsenal of cleaning tools.
1. Quickly wipe the drawing off the wall
If your little Picasso, who doesn't even go to school yet, left a mysterious drawing on the wall with crayons or pencils, don't worry. You should not grab a knife to scrape off a "picture" or pick up aggressive liquid to remove stains. Simply apply generous mayonnaise to the stained area and leave it on for a few minutes. Then wipe with a damp cloth, pat dry with a towel and let the wall dry. Be careful when using this method on porous paint surfaces as it may leave an oil stain. Now hide the crayons away! Even if the walls are again covered with "rock paintings", you know how to deal with it.
2. Make your home quiet
Even the highest quality doors sometimes start to open with an unpleasant creak. It resembles either a whistle, or a mouse squeak, but in any case, it will not caress your ear. What if you are very annoyed by the creak of a door, but there is no oil for lubrication? Yes, this situation happens in every home. It is especially unpleasant if you put the child to bed and are afraid to wake him up with extraneous sounds, or a tired person is sleeping in the room. Go to the kitchen immediately, open the fridge and grab the mayonnaise.
You can easily use it as a lubricant. Carefully remove the rod from the hinges (by the way, don't forget to grease them too) and cover with sauce. Then put the element back in and remove the excess with a damp cloth.
3. Remove sticky stickers without problem
Sometimes sticky price tags on new purchases are just frustrating. You have to break your nails to wipe them off, and if you do this with a knife, you can scratch the surface of the thing. Sometimes you want to shove it under a hot shower so that the piece of paper gets wet and the glue melts. Of course, you can not do this with every purchase - it would be strange to bathe a new tape recorder or shoes. To make it easier, rub a little mayonnaise on the price tag and let the mixture soak. You can then easily remove the Velcro with a cloth or soft bristled brush.
4. Remove ugly traces of moisture from the tree
If you put a wet glass on a coffee table or dresser, you can end up with an ugly whitish ring. Mayonnaise will help get rid of it. The oil in this sauce quickly displaces moisture. Are you facing a fingerprint problem? Just apply mayonnaise to the surface and let it sit for a few minutes. Then wipe off with a dry towel and breathe a sigh of relief - no trace.
5. Help the plants
Houseplants bring coziness to the house and create a unique atmosphere. Sometimes large leaves become covered with dust, become dull and not too beautiful. But this is not the worst thing, the fact is that at the same time they do not receive the necessary nutrients from the environment, including the ultraviolet light they need. A tricky and simple trick is to polish them with mayonnaise. It is able to give shine to the leaves and help the plant get more opportunities for photosynthesis.
6. Get rid of the gum you stepped on
If you step on chewing gum while walking, it will stick to the sole. This is very disgusting, and I want to quickly get rid of the stupid Velcro. Mayonnaise will help here too. Rub it into the sole, covering the completely stuck object, wait until it starts to come off. Then you can easily remove the gum with a knife.

No. Let's remember about mayonnaise. Fill the crack with the sauce and let it sit overnight. This will swell the wood fibers and thus reduce the size of the defect. It will become almost invisible. After the procedure, gently erase the excess, if necessary, repeat the manipulation again.
