Most products come with an expiring date, and coming in contact with them after their expiration might not be the most appetizing thing to do.
Notwithstanding, these products can be put to good use after expiration; from skincare to cooking. These alternative uses might be what you need right now.
- Shaving Cream We can reuse shaving cream in different ways once it’s expired. It’s great for cleaning dirt and grease because it literally attracts it. It can also be used to clean dirty fingernails; apply some cream and clean them with a toothpick.
Because toothpaste contains detergent, it can help remove stains off the carpet and even clean crayons from the walls. It can also be used to whiten and clean tennis shoes and phone screens. It can also help remove that sour smell from baby bottles.
Spoiled avocado can be a great moisturizer. Just smash or blend it and apply it to dry hair. Let it sit for at least 6 hours and wash it away with the shampoo and conditioner you usually use.
- Greek Yoghurt
Greek yoghurt has great benefits, even after its exploration date. At first, it might seem weird, but it can become a great exfoliating face mask. All you need to do is mix the yoghurt with honey and blended cucumber, apply it to your face, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Then, simply wash it off with warm water.
- Eye and Lip Liners
It’s not safe to use expired makeup liners on your eyes or lips. However, please don’t throw them away because you can use them to underline words and sentences in books as coloured pencils.
