3 Good Ways to Use Cold Cream

3 useful things you can do with this ordinary bathroom item.

1. Erase temporary tattoos
Kids love temporary tattoos, but getting them off can be a painful, scrubbing chore. To make removal easier, loosen the tattoo by rubbing cold cream on it and then gently rub it off with a facecloth. Voilà!

2. Remove bumper stickers
Does your bumper sticker still say “Honk for Gore”? Erase the past by rubbing cold cream on the sticker and letting it soak in. Once it does, you should be able to peel it right off.

3. Make face paint
Need a safe, easy recipe for Halloween face paint? Mix 1 teaspoon corn-starch, 1/2 teaspoon water, 1/2 teaspoon cold cream, and 2 drops food coloring (depending on the costume) together. Use a small paintbrush to paint designs on your face or your child’s. Remove it with soap and water.
