    A friend of mine is an Avon dealer and she gave me this list the other day. I thought it was interesting.


    Work Made Easy with Avon's Original Skin-So-Soft Bath Oil!

    Did you know that Avon's Skin-So-Soft bath Oil is more than just a Bath Oil? Look at the list of uses some customers have found "Tried and True")!!

    It's a Bath Oil.
    It's an After Shower Moisturizer.
    It can be used to remove Makeup.
    It's a Suntan Oil. (It is not a sunscreen.)
    Pour a little in the water of your Foot Saver to help moisturize your feet while you relax them.
    It's a hot oil treatment to soften nails.
    It's good massage oil for those sore, overworked muscles.
    It repels insects for people and their pets (has been recommended in Outdoor Life, Field & Stream Magazines, plus Dear Abby.)
    It helps relieve itching caused by insect bites and dry skin.
    Sponge it on screen doors and windows to keep crawling bugs, as well as flies and mosquitoes OUT!!
    It's a good cleaner, conditioner, and polish for natural wood. It cuts grease and dirt from kitchen cabinets with ease.
    It removes chewing gum from hair, skin, carpet and most non-porous surfaces.
    It removes glue and gum left behind by price tags and labels from glass, metal and most plastics.
    It removes tape marks left by bandages from skin.
    It cleans ink from skin, most vinyl, and painted surfaces.
    It gently cleans heavy grease and oil from skin and most non-porous surfaces. Great for mechanics.
    It removes soap scum from shower doors, shower curtains, and windows as well as bathroom and kitchen fixtures.
    It removes lime and hard water deposits form windows, fixtures, shower doors, and tile.
    It removes tar spots from car finishes without damaging the finish.
    It's an oil lubricant for pipe joints that won't slip together as easily as they used to.
    It removes paint and stains from skin ... much gentler than turpentine.
    It cleans paint brushes easily, and leaves them soft and new.
    It cuts grease and dirt from range hoods.
    It removes candle wax from furniture, carpeting, and clothing.
    It removes scuff marks from patent leather shoes.
    It removes Liquid Nails (paneling glue).
    Two glass bowls or glasses stuck together? Drizzle a little SSS down the sides and they'll come apart easily ... no breakage!
    It removes "Ring Around the Collar".
    Wipe down Vinyl surfaces inside your car. Cleans them nicely and removes smoke odor left behind by cigarette smokers.
    Extra benefit ... while using it to clean, etc., SSS leaves your hands soft and smooth, unlike harsh cleaners.

    I had heard of a lot of these uses before but the ring around the collar one is a first. Must try it.

    Just be very careful using in the tub as its original intended use. It makes the tub oh so slippery...ask me how I know! Ouch!

    Thank you for sharing!

    My Army Sgt. son-in-law said that he and lots of his men used it when traveling by foot in areas of the world that had lots of nasty insects. And as for smelling sweet and being laughed at..for one, he's usually an easy going guy, for another he's 6 foot 5 and a weight lifter.

    I sure don't care for it in the tub. To slippery and it leaves a oily film in the tub. I will sure use it for the rest of this stuff though. Thank you so much!!!

    We also used it on my son's show pigs when they blistered from the hot sun.

    You can also use skin so soft on the rails of your quilt frame to make it roll easier.

    SSS is the BEST bug repellent there is.
    I have used SSS of MANY puppies and kittens to young for flea killing medication. You just drizzle some on and rub it in, they will be oily and yucky but wont have bugs!
