default Different Uses for Baby Oil

Post by polgara on 18th October 2012, 3:26 pm

"Underground, Overground, Wombling Free,
The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we.
Making good use of the things that we find,
Things that the everyday folks leave behind.

We're so incredibly, utterly devious
Making the most of everything.
Even bottles and tins.
Pick up the pieces and make them into something new,
Is what we do!"



I realise this is a dodgy topic Laughing so shall we keep this clean pleeeeeeeeeeease

To take a plaster off of a small, first soak the adhesive parts with the oil & it should help to lesson the hurty bit. Suppose you could use any oil really

You know, there are some products available which make me stop and ponder, why ever would you need that ? Baby oil is one of them. Despite having had a baby in the household for a while, I never figured it out. Babies appear to be made from corrosion resistant materials, and unlike door hinges I don't think oiling works to stop them screeching. Perhaps someone can explain it.

Whatever, it does work fairly well as a honing oil for sharpening your tools on an oilstone, though.

Also for oiling a sewing or knitting machine. Think it is because it is a mineral oil,

I never used it on the DSs when they were small either.

No. I never used it on the babies either...but a capful in a bath does nice things to your skin (if you don't mind doing some heavy duty cleaning on the bath afterwards)
