If you thought olive oil was just for cooking, we're here to prove you wrong with our new series—Household Hacks. Grab your favorite bottle of EVOO and let's get to it.

Shaving in a Pinch
Run out of shaving cream? Not to worry! Olive oil is a natural, cheap, and effective lubricant to get a close shave. 

Goodbye Goo!
When your hands are covered in sap, grease, paint, or any other sticky substance, just scrub with some olive oil and a little salt or sugar. It will not only remove the “goo,” but will leave your hands soft to the touch.

Stubborn Sticker Savior 
Stuck sticker? Those are the worst! Dab some olive oil on the sticker and let it soak for a few minutes. It will peel right off!

Simple Shoe Shine
Olive oil and a washcloth are perfect preferred partners in shoe shining—especially for leather boots! No need to buy the traditional, strong-smelling shoe polish. Save yourself a headache and just head to the kitchen.

Conditioning Companion
Who doesn’t want a natural, effective way to deep condition? Soak your hair in olive oil for 45 minutes under towel and rinse thoroughly when done! Voilá—soft locks!

Manicure Miracle
Create a simple 1:1 ratio mixture of olive oil and water to use as pre-manicure soak. The olive oil will help to repair damage to your skin and soften your nails and cuticles.
