Format: Paperback
Joey Green details alternative uses for almost three dozen common products, available at a store near you. He also gives a brief history of each product, ingredients and their web addresses. He also has "strange facts" about the products.
Did you know that Cheez Whiz of Cool Whip are also substitute shaving creams? How about cleaning your toilet with Gatorade, Country Time Lemonade or Dr. Pepper? It's amazing how many things we eat are also effective for house cleaning. Scope and Baby Oil will keep the flies off your horses, too. M&M's are apparently great bass bait, as well as a tasty snack. Cheez Whiz can also prevent "split ends" in your hair.
Some of the uses will crack you up, other make you say "yuch!" But, this is an amusing read that you will find educational, as well. If you want a good laugh and get new insights of the items you have under the sink, in the fridge or on the can shelf, get this book. You can even play "guess what product I'm talking about" with your wife on a long car ride.
No, I don't think I'll shave with Cheez Whiz anytime soon. Cool Whip, maybe......

My wife is always on the prowl for helpful hints. Books like these are interesting and have many common sense solutions to everyday problems.

Very interesting to see the chemical/physical reasons for non-standard use of everyday items. Good fodder for trivia one-upsmanship!
