Handy Gal Tips - olive oil
Clean up paint on skin and hair. Massage olive oil wherever you have dried paint on your hands, body or even in your hair. The oil will loosen dried paint. Wipe off with a paper towel. Then wash as usual. Not only will paint be gone, but your skin will be softer. This trick will also work with tree sap and gum.
Eye make up remover. Even waterproof mascara. Dab on a cotton ball and gently sweep across your eyelid. Olive oil is also very moisturizing to your skin.
Remove a sticker. Use a cotton ball or paintbrush and cover the sticker with oil, rub in with your fingers, let it soak in and rub or lift the sticker off.
