Here is how you can make use of your conditioner for other things:
1. Fabric Softener
Hair conditioner makes a good substitute for fabric softener. Dilute the conditioner with water and keep it in a spray bottle. Spray the solution on your washcloth and rub it together, then toss in the dryer with damp clothes. Each cloth can be used for 3 dryer cycles before it needs to be washed and refilled.
2. Make-Up Remover
Stop splurging on expensive make-up removers and try this. Your hair conditioner can easily and quickly remove your make-up for much less.
3. Shoe protector
