DIY USE FOR K-Y JELLY ???

Yes! This is another Thrifty Little Tip for ya! Did you know there are TONS of thrifty household uses for K-Y - it's very helpful for DIY'ers...check these out:

  • Loosen Stick Price Tags and Product Labels - Cover the tag or label with a light layer of the lubricant and let it sit for a few minutes. Then peel it right off.


  • Remove Tight or Stuck-on Rings - Just place a dab of it on your finger right by the ring. Then, work it underneath the ring until it easily slides off your finger.


  • Lubricate a Fishing Rod Reel - Part of maintaining your fishing rod is to keep it properly lubricated. Applying a light oil like K-Y Jelly to the working inner parts like the gears, shafts, roller, hinges, and switches will help keep them working smoothly. It will also extend the life of the parts and save you from having to buy a new fishing rod. It won't damage plastic or nylon gears either.


  • Sticky Zippers - If your zipper has ever gotten stuck on your coat, you know what a pain it is. Just put a dab of K-Y Jelly inside the slider part. Then, slowly move the slider up the length of the zipper, and back down again. The zipper should now glide easily and no more frustrations.


  • Untangle Knotted Jewelry & Chains - Simply place a dab of K-Y directly on the knot. Then, gently roll it around between your finger and thumb until it loosen up and you can pull the knot apart.


  • Shine Shoes and Patent Leather - Although it is recommended to use petroleum jelly or special patent leather cleaning product, you can also use K-Y jelly. A dab of K-Y and a soft cloth can clean and shine your shoes, bags or any patent leather item you might have.
