Softens cuticles-soak fingertips in a bowl of mayo for 5-10 minutes, rinse with warm water to hydrate and smooth the nail and cuticle
Removes paint splatters-gets rid of accidental drips on the light switches, door knobs; add mayo before it hardens completely. The oil in the mayo helps break down the oil in the paint (oil attracts oil), its less harsh than paint thinner
Erase water stains-for wet marks and rings on wood furniture; put two spoonfuls on the spot, cover with a paper towel and press down. Leave for a few hours, buff with a clean cloth and the mark will fade
Dust the house plants-clean potted plants with mild soap and water, use a paper towel to rub a drop of mayo into the top of the leaves; they will look healthy and vibrant for weeks
Rescue Dinner-when out of eggs for making breaded chicken, spread a thin layer of mayo on the meat, add bread crumbs and fry
