It happens: Your good bottle of olive oil can go rancid. But while that oil may not be good for sauteing or salad dressings, that doesn’t mean you should toss it away. Olive oil has a whole variety of useful applications all over the house. Got paint on your hands? Use a little oil to help break it up so it washes away easily. Dull furniture? Buff scuffed wood and old leather chairs with oil on a soft towel and they’ll shine up like new. Are your rattan, wicker or wood chairs dried out and brittle? A little olive oil helps moisturize, renew and strengthen them so they’ll last longer.
