Wine stains are pretty tough to get out. Fortunately, you can put some of that free shaving cream to use and clean those stains out.

If you have some hinges that have been driving you wild with squeaking, put a dollop of shaving cream on them and wipe away. This can help reduce the squeakiness or get rid of it entirely.

Want to avoid wasting water but still have a balloon fight this summer? Fill your balloons with some of that free shaving cream instead! It’s a little messier and you’ll still need water to clean up afterwards, but it’s a blast for kids.

10. Camping cleaner!

When you’re camping, you might not always have access to a water source to wash your hands after a long day roughing it. Simply “clean” your hands with shaving cream and then wipe dry with a towel. This will help you conserve water and clean things in a pinch when you don’t have any!
