Don’t want to buy a fabric conditioner? Don’t, because you already have hair conditioner at home. It does the exact job at half the price. Plus, you can save generous amounts of bills that you have to shell out every time you get your silks dry-cleaned. Here’s how–add a tablespoonful of hair conditioner to a tub filled with water and soak your clothes in it for a few minutes. Rinse and hang dry. As simple as that! We know, you can’t thank us enough.  

For skin and nail care

On a desperate night when you’ve run out of a proper makeup remover, the smallest bit of conditioner can come to your rescue. Dab a cotton pad on some moisturiser and gently wipe it all over your face. Another great use of conditioner is for your nails. Cuticle creams are a tad too greasy, so try using a little bit of conditioner onto your nail beds before you push them back.  

Rescue shrunken sweaters

If you've accidently dried your favourite sweater under high heat, it shrinks to a size from where there's no going back. However, try adding a tablespoonful of conditioner in a bucket of water, and let the sweater submerge in the solution. You may be able to stretch it back to its original size but we don’t offer any guarantees.  

As a shaving cream

Conditioner can happily be substituted for your regular shaving cream that tends to be made up of a lot of chemicals. Conditioner not only gives a close shave, it also moisturizes at the same time. And, it is way cheaper!
