Everyone knows that flour is a must for cooking and baking in the kitchen. But did you know that there are some amazing ways to use flour that have nothing to do with cooking, baking, or eating? If you didn’t know, you’re about to find out! Here are 7 seriously genius ways to use flour in your home.
1. If you’ve got little people around, this might be the number one way to use flour. Instead of spending money for play dough, make your own. You’ll need 2 cups of flour, 2 cups of warm water, 1 cup of salt, and 2 tablespoons of oil. Add a few drops of food coloring to make it more fun.
2. Ditch the expensive dry shampoo, and just use flour instead. Seriously! You’ll need a large makeup brush to dust it away after it soaks up the oil from your roots. See InStyle for the details.
3. Equal parts flour, salt, and white vinegar is a fantastic way to polish your copper pots and pans. Just use a sponge to rub the mixture all over the copper, then rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth.
