8 Uncommon uses for nail polish

I was cleaning my bathroom's cabinets and noticed I have a bunch of old nail polish bottles that I'm not going to use anymore, and I started to think what I can do with all of these without throwing them away? then I remembered these old tricks:

Seal an envelope Worried about whether the glue will hold? or getting a paper cut? Brush polish on the underside of the flap.

Smooth a hanger If there are rough edges on wooden or plastic hangers that could snag clothes, don’t throw the hangers out. Just brush polish over edges.

Secure a screw Tighten loose screws on cabinets or pot handles by brushing some clear nail polish on screw threads. Insert the screw and let dry before using again. (Bonus - polish
also keeps them from rusting.)

Great tips! I like the one to tighten the screws! I use Nail Polish too to stop a trim end from shedding. For instance when you cut a ribbon and the threads starts to go loose starts to shed, waste not time and brush a small amount just on the freshly cut edge and you'll have a resolved problem.

Thanks for sharing!
