1. Apply a few drops of baby oil around your cuticles before you paint your nails with your favourite polish - this will make the polish a lot easier to remove.

2. Run out of shaving foam? Baby oil makes a great substitute - it locks in moisture to make your legs feel super smooth too.

3. Baby oil is a brilliant make up remover, particularly when it comes to dark eye makeup. Add to a cotton pad and gently wipe over your eye lids to get rid of even the most stubborn of mascaras.

4. Got your favourite necklace in a twist? Apply a small amount of baby oil over the worst knot to speed up the detangling process.

5. Baby oil also does wonders for leather shoes. Polish up your worn-out pair for a shiny, clean finish.
