You don’t have to look very far but in your own kitchen to find some excellent products to help solve many household and beauty problems. Cornstarch is one item you may think differently of after you read this post. For this reason, here are some other uses for cornstarch that may surprise you as well as come in handy.
Other Uses of Cornstarch for Cleaning and Odd Tasks
For starters, cornstarch makes a wonderful non-abrasive cleaner for tackling grease off of a wall. Add some on a damp cloth and rub the spot to remove the mark until gone.
If you have floor boards that squeak, you sprinkle some cornstarch between them to stop that annoying sound.
You reach for your rubber gloves and hate the hassle you get from trying to pull them off because they stick. Instead, you should sprinkle inside those gloves with cornstarch to correct that problem.
One of my favorite other uses for cornstarch is for untangling knots in delicate chains on jewelry. Rub some cornstarch on the knot and magically that stuck chain will come free! This trick also works on knotted shoelaces and string.
