Miracle Gel

While working at school yesterday morning, I tried to use a pair of scissors and found them to be quite stiff. They were almost unusable. I didn’t have any oil to lubricate them with, so I thought they might have to go into storage until I remembered to bring oil to school (which would probably be a very long time indeed). But before I put them into permanent storage, I thought I might just try hand sanitizer. I have previously used it to great effect for cleaning ink off desks. Why not try scissors?

It was amazing! The sanitizer cleaned out whatever gunk was in the scissor hinge, plus there was some kind of moisturizer that acted as a fine lubricant. Is there anything hand sanitizer can’t do?

I should put some in my car instead of motor oil!

    Hand sanitizer also makes a delicious dessert topping!

    I’ve heard you can make hand sanitizer out of rubbing alcohol and aloe vera gel. I wonder if that’s what the regular stuff is?

    It also works as a mild sedative hand cleaner for children.

    And in a pinch, a squirt of Pam will take care of a squeaky door. 🙂

    …and WD-40 on arthritis elbows is supposed to relieve the pain, too.
