Okay, so what are you going to do with that massive stash of conditioner that you have built up with all of your awesome couponing (or just from buying in bulk)?  I myself have had some pretty extensive stashes over the years built up and have found some fun and really useful things to do with it (outside of conditioning my hair of course).

If you are looking for some creative uses for your free conditioner, look no further:

1.Shaving Cream

This is my favorite creative use for conditioners.  Using it for shaving cream feels awesome on your legs, leaving them soft and with a close shave.

2. Calm Down Your Static

Do you have static filled hair? Don’t you just hate that?  Grab a small dab of conditioner, rub it into your hands and then through your hair.  It will do the trick.

3. Detangler

Did you know that you can use your conditioner for a detangler outside of just it’s conditioning use?  Fill a spray bottle with mostly water and a dash of conditioner and use it as a detangler.

4. Fabric Softener

Put a small amount of conditioner into your washer during the appropriate cycle, it works just as well as fabric softener.

5. Dryer Sheets

Same concept as with fabric softener, but for your dryer instead!  Mix one part conditioner with one part water and spray onto a washcloth.  Toss the washcloth into the dryer with next load.  You will have static free, soft clothing.

6. Makeup Remover

Use a dab of conditioner and a warm, damp washcloth to remove your makeup at the end of the day.

7. As A Lubricant

Yes, conditioner is technically a lubricant.  Because of this, it can help you with minor situations that a lubricant can help with.  Got a zipper stuck?  Use a conditioner.  Slow draining sink?  Pour conditioner down it, followed by hot water to get the drain moving again.

8. Stainless Steel Polish

Grab your cleaning cloth and place a dab of conditioner on it, now use this to polish your stainless steel appliances.  It works great for getting out fingerprints and smudges.  Once you are done, go over it again with a clean, dry cloth to remove any residue.
