10 great uses for Vaseline Petroleum Jelly

Vaseline has been around for many years. Growing up we used Vaseline around our house often.  Below are some of my family’s 10 favorites uses for Vaseline. When you are done reading mine, please let me know what you use vaseline for in your home.


1.  Softens chapped skin. If you are all out of lotion, rub a little vaseline on your body and it will soften your skin.

2.  Great feet and hand moisturizer. If you have cracked rough feet or hands, put on vaseline after you bathe or take a shower at night and then put on socks or gloves.  The next day your skin will be soft and smooth.

3.  Softens dry lips. Use it to moisten your lips; especially in the winter when your lips can become dry and brittle.

4.  Rub it on a noisy door’s hinges and it will get rid of the creaky sounds.

5.  Have a young baby, use it when taken the baby’s rectal temperature.

6. Use vaseline to remove your make-up.  Your make-up will slide right off, and then you should do your normal facial routine.

7. After you put on your lip stick rub on some vaseline to give it added shine so that your lips will appear fuller.

8. Rub vaseline on your teeth before you are on camera for a whiter and brighter smile.

9. If you need to loosen something that is stuck, try rubbing a little vaseline on it. When we are all out of WD-40 I generally grab vaseline if we have it on hand. It works like an excellent lubricant.

10. Skin protector. When getting a perm, relaxer, hair dye, or any chemicals put vaseline on your skin generously to protect your body from the harsh chemicals.
