      Cool hub. I had heard about using peanut butter to get gum out of your hair years ago in The Simpsons. However, I didn't know you could use it as a lubricant, or to clean leather couches. Leather cleaner can be really expensive so thanks for the handy alternative!

      Never would have thought that Peanut Butter could be use to shave your face. I am temped to try this, but I think I might just wait until an emergency no shave creme situation. It would be extremely hard for me to put peanut butter that close to my mouth without eating it.

      Cleaning leather is also a surprising use for jellies best friend. I have although had gobs of peanut butter slathered into my hair as a child to remove chewing gum...I wanted to eat my hair after that. I have also used peanut butter as a replacement for butter and it works well.

      Thanks for the useful list CHG

      Funny ideas, but also a good one where you substituted butter with peanut butter. I have tried it with pancakes and it was a huge success.
