Most of us don't realize that hair conditioner isn't just for our hair. It actually has a variety of uses to condition many areas of your home as well as simplify your beauty routine!
Conditioning Your Life
Conditioner has long been synonymous with shiny hair! It smells great and can smooth out even the coarsest of hair. Bringing it out of the shower and into your everyday life is not common but after reading all of its great uses, you’ll be a believer in no time.
Shave It Away
Conditioner is a great substitute for shaving cream! It will keep your skin moisturized, cut-free, and lead to smooth results.
Children hate when mom can't seem to get the tangles out of their hair. Conditioner is a great solution. Just mix a small amount in a spray bottle with water! Spritz on tangled hair and gently comb through for pain-free brushing.

Keep It Fresh
Curtains, couches, and chairs can be some of the hardest fabrics to keep fresh. Instead of spending money on cleaning products, try mixing water and conditioner in a spray bottle. Make sure to test it in a less visible spot to make sure it won't leave any marks.
Softening The Drain
A clogged drain is one of the most annoying problems to deal with! Next time, try squirting conditioner into the drain and flush with hot water. The conditioner should lubricate the blockage and help clear it out.
Wintertime can take a toll on leather shoes, but conditioner can help save them! Apply a small amount to a dry shoe and work into the leather by buffing it with a clean rag.
Keep your stainless steel shiny with conditioner and a clean cloth! This will also work on golf clubs to keep them shiny and clean.
Taming The Static
Static hair can seem impossible to tame! Rub some conditioner in the palm of your hands and apply to your head to smooth out any static.

Keeping Hair In Its Place
Frizzes and fly-aways can also be tamed by conditioner! Apply it as you would for static and enjoy the rest of your day, frizz-free!
Silky and Smooth
Adding conditioner to a sink full of delicates can help cut back on dry cleaning costs. A tablespoon added to room temperature water is gentle enough to use on silk clothing!
Brushes With Bristles
The smoothing powers of conditioner can also be used to keep brushes from becoming sharp objects! Wet or dry, conditioner can be applied to makeup or paint brushes to keep the bristles soft and flexible.
Bring A Sweater Back To Life
A shrunken sweater usually becomes a hand-me-down or donated, but this trick might save it! Try this by adding a tablespoon of conditioner to a bucket of water until it is dissolved, then submerge the sweater and let it sit until it softens. You can then gently stretch the sweater back into its original size and give it new life!
WD-40… look out! Conditioner can be a substitute for a better-smelling option to grease. It can also silence squeaky hardware around the house.
Zip It Up
Conditioner also makes a great lubricant for stubborn zippers. A small amount added to the zipper keeps it nimble and mobile!

Drying With Conditioner
Instead of spending money on fabric softener, try dampening a washcloth with conditioner and adding it to your dryer load!
The Unmentionable Solution
Unmentionables, a.k.a lingerie, are far too delicate to throw into the washing machine. Next time, add a dollop of conditioner to a sink of room temperature water and keep them looking fresh!
Rust No More
Rusty tools and faucets are less than ideal. Apply a thin layer of conditioner to help prevent rust!
Softening Up Your Life
Conditioner goes far beyond its use in the bathroom! Rather than throw your old bottles away, look for ways to use them around the house. It’s a great product to keep things smelling fresh and save you money.
