Most of us have used petroleum jelly all our lives for dry and sensitive skin. But there are lots of ways you can use petroleum jelly around your home and for things you’ve probably never even thought of.
Here Are 15 Alternative Uses For Petroleum Jelly:
1) Hide Wood Furniture Scuffs
Let petroleum jelly fix your furniture. Place some petroleum jelly on scratches, scuffs, and stains. Let it sit for 24 hours then wipe away.
2) Make Perfume Last Longer
Petroleum jelly can make you smell nice for longer. Just dab some Vaseline on your pulse points. Then spray your fragrance on.
3) Remove Gum From Wood
Apply petroleum jelly to gum that is stuck on wood. It will eventually disintegrate the gum. This will allow you to easily remove it.
4) Pop That Highlighter
You can use petroleum jelly as a highlighter. Just dab a little on the high points of your face where you’d put highlighter. This will give you a bright dewy look.
5) Remove Candle Wax

6) Remove Makeup Stains From Clothing
Wet a washcloth so that it’s damp. Dab your makeup stain with the petroleum jelly. The makeup stain should lift up.
