Ordinary things can have extraordinary uses, resulting in more savings. You don’t have to break your back to remedy everyday needs. In this show, Dr. Oz proves to everyone that everyday things have new uses, and these great ideas are in fact for free. Here are the everyday essentials that have unique and ingenious uses.
1) Deodorant extraordinary uses
We will learn that deodorant is not just for your underarms anymore. Here are the other surprising ways you can find use for your odor removal solution:
a. Nail Polish Removal.
All you need to do is spray the deodorant spray on your painted nail as close as possible. Let it sit for a minute or so, and then wipe it off with a cotton ball. This way, you remove the nail polish without the strong smell of acetone.
b. Slip into Jeans.
Use deodorant to get into your skinny jeans. First, you have to swipe down your legs before putting on the pants. This will grease you right into a pair of skinny jeans and will keep the pants from sticking to you.
c. Itch Relief.
You can relieve an itchy mosquito bite with deodorant. All you need to do is apply the deodorant liberally to the mosquito bite to stop the itch.
2) Watermelon extraordinary uses
Watermelons are not just for eating. You can use this delicious fruit to remedy skin problems. Here are how:
a. Facial Mask.
You can use watermelons to relieve wrinkles. To make your DIY facial mask, mix 1 teaspoon of watermelon juice and 1 teaspoon of mashed avocado. Apply it on your face, leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water. It will moisturize your skin naturally and replenish any lost water or moist in your skin. After application, your skin will feel great and refreshed.
b. Dry Skin Relief.
You can use watermelon to deal with dry skin that you have trouble soothing sometimes. To make your DIY moisturizer, mix 1 teaspoon of watermelon juice and 1 teaspoon of honey. Apply it on the face and leave it on for 20 minutes. And, probably while waiting, you can have your tea and honey. Watermelon is 90% water, so that natural moisturizer gets into there. It also has lycopene which helps the skin. The result can be seen immediately. You can take the mask off with a soft wet cloth. You can feel how your skin feels soft right after wiping it off.
c. Breakouts Relief.
You can also use watermelon to help with summertime breakouts, especially with gym workout. Sweat on the face can sometimes lead to acne and breakouts. So, to remedy that, just mix 1 teaspoon of watermelon juice and 1 teaspoon of crushed bananas. Apply the mask and leave it on for 15 minutes. Afterwards, rinse it off with warm water. Within the week you can see the results, and you can even use this all year round. You will find that when you try a lot of products, you only spend a lot of money on them and they don’t work. So, this one is an all-natural fix that is effective within days. Dr. Oz explains that a lot of moisturizers are oily, so they plug the pores. But if you use the watermelon, it doesn’t do that.
3) Flip Flops extraordinary uses
Flip flops are no longer limited to footwear use. There are three other unique ways that you can make use of this everyday ordinary footwear.
Use flip flops in cleaning surfaces, to remove all excess soap and water especially in bathroom mirrors.

Rub your used flip flops on the floors to pick up the pesky clumps of pet hair.
4) Tea extraordinary uses
Other than using iced tea as a favorite drink, you can use tea to hide gray hair. This is a very cost-effective and convenient way of hiding gray roots when you can’t make it the salon.
Here is how you can use tea as a hair dye:
- Put 3 teabags in boiling water. Stir and then add rosemary and sage.
- Let it sit overnight.
- In the morning, you should strain it.
- When ready, spray it on your roots. Apply it liberally and leave it in.
This technique keeps the gray hair concealed for a few days while you can’t make it to the salon. Another use for tea is feet odor removal. All you need to do is just soak your feet for 20 minutes in water that’s pre-mixed with black tea. This helps get rid of the odor from slip-on shoes. Tea helps dry up the feet well.
