Mayo condition your hair: Just hold the mayo… and massage it into your hair and scalp just as you would any fine conditioner! Cover your head with a shower cap, wait several minutes, and shampoo. The mayonnaise will moisturize your hair and give it a lustrous sheen.

Woah! Never thought Mayo could be that versatile. I'm definitely telling my cousin about this, as she's got tons of crayon markings on her wall (because of her 6-year old daughter).

I never knew these until I read your post. I hardly use mayonnaise when I cook and apply on bread. These are useful tips but I think, when applied to plants may invite some hungry insects.

I love it being a crayon remover and I must admit that this is the first time I know it. I am just hoping it has the same effects on concrete walls.

Isn't mayonnaise also used to make your hair shiny and to prevent insects from eating the leaves of your potted plants. I read that somewhere.
