I was watching the Home Shopping Network while making dinner last week (yes, I am fascinated with shopping networks. Those people can sell.). They were selling a new book, The “Who Knew?” Almanac, which shares little and well-known tricks to save money. They were highlighting a few tricks from the book and one caught my eye (and ear) — Use cheap hair conditioner as shaving cream. Interesting. Mostly because I am almost out of real shaving cream and I was planning to wear capris the next morning. So, I put my free-after-coupon hair conditioner to the test.
Would it work as well as shaving cream, or regular soap for that matter?
The result? It works! The hair came off, my legs were smooth and there was no razor burn to boot. Because conditioner is so cheap and shaving cream deals are few and far between, I just may start using it for shaving after my shaving cream stock is depleated.
This led me to think, what other frugal tricks are out there? I’d love to start a series of posts that highlight household remedies, quick fixes and money-saving methods that you all have been using in your home.
