How Olive Oil is Made?

Clean the Greasy Hands

To remove car grease or paint from your hands, pour 1 teaspoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon salt or sugar into your palms. Vigorously rub the mixture into your hands and between your fingers for several minutes; then wash it off with soap and water. Not only will your hands be cleaner, they’ll be softer as well.


Clear up acne

Make a paste by mixing 4 tablespoons salt with 3 tablespoons olive oil. Pour the mixture onto your hands and fingers and work it around your face. Leave it on for a minute or two, then rinse it off with warm, soapy water. Apply daily for one week, then cut back to two or three times weekly.


Moisturize skin

Apply a small amount of oil to nail beds to soften cuticles. When you're cooking with olive oil. Also, put a thin layer all over your skin after a waxing or a shower. It will act as an intense moisturizer to soothe extra-dry skin.


Soothe throat

A tablespoon of olive oil could be a quick, temporary fix until your next drugstore trip.


Remove Paint from Hair

Remove that undesirable tint by moistening a cotton ball with some olive oil and gently rubbing it into your hair.


Remove Eye Make Up

Dip a cotton pad into olive oil. Wipe it beneath your eyes and on your eyelids to remove eyeliner and mascara. Rinse with warm water and a washcloth and follow-up with your face wash.


Shine Stainless Steel

Rub some olive oil on stainless steel pots, pans, flatware and sinks as an effective and safe way to make them shine. Unlike a harsh product like ammonia, this gentle one won't corrode or dull your stainless-steel items.



Use a bit of olive oil to moisturize cuticles, or mix oil and water and soak your hands before a manicure.
