Petroleum jelly is a byproduct of the oil refinery industry and has myriad uses. And while the jury is still out on the safety of the product for personal care, if you have a jar, there are other uses for it, too. One helpful tip is to dab the jelly at the edges of glue bottles before you put the cap back on. It’ll create a lubricated surface that will prevent the cap from sticking, so you can open it easily the next time you need glue. This tip works great on nail polish bottles, too.
