If you have a few drops of cooking or olive oil left in a bottle, turn it upside down and let it drip into a soft rag or microfiber towel. This does two things: It cleans out the bottle to ready it for recycling and it gives you the perfect rag to clean around the house. Use the lightly oiled cloth to polish leather furniture, or on dull wood to moisturize and bring it back to life. You can even clean door hinges that squeak with just a few drops of old oil.
