When You Don’t Have Shaving Cream, Use Peanut Butter

Whether you’re shaving your face, your legs, or really anywhere else you can think of, you probably do it with shaving cream. As ridiculous as it may sound at first, peanut butter is actually a worth alternative — so long as you don’t get the chunky variety. Top 10 lists site Listverse has the details:

Believe it or not, peanut butter makes a great shaving gel. Just apply it like you would apply the gel, and shave as normal. It works just as well and anyone that has bought a container of shaving gel will know, it is a hell of a lot cheaper. The end result is a very smooth shave and, as a bonus, the oils in the peanut butter are very good for your skin, so you don’t need to spend even more money on moisturizer for your legs or face.

It makes sense, but I was a little sceptical. I was hoping to try this myself, but I couldn’t find any peanut butter. Fortunately Listverse provided this video (contains naughty language!!), and I also found this one. It may not be your first choice for shaving aids, but it’s a good trick to have in a pinch (or if you’re just in the mood for spreading peanut butter all over yourself).
