Things To Do With Glue…

A co-worker forwarded me one of those “Interesting Stuff To Know…” emails today. A comprehensive list of unorthodox uses for everyday products. My favorite from the list:

Elmer’s Glue-paint on your face, allow it to dry, peel off and see the dead skin and blackheads.

Why would anyone ever even think to spread Elmer’s Glue all over their face? I mean, really. When I pick up a bottle of glue, my first thought isn’t, “Hmm. I wonder what would happen if I decided to spread this all over my face (my face!) and then peel it off?”

A close second however, was this:

Body paint – Crisco mixed with food coloring. Heat the Crisco in the microwave, pour into an empty film container and mix with the food color of your choice!

I can only imagine some Midwestern housewife, with a little bit of Crisco left over from making biscuits, wondering what to do with it. “Hmm. I think I’ll put it in the microwave, add some food coloring, or maybe KoolAid, and have a body painting party.” Nebraskans gone wild. Watch out.
