Start your day with a clear view by applying a thin layer of shaving cream to your bathroom mirror. Wipe it off with a clean cloth, leaving behind a thin film that prevents fogging during hot showers.

Polish Up Your Jewelry:
Rediscover the sparkle in your jewelry by using shaving cream as a polishing agent. Apply a small amount, rub gently with a soft cloth, rinse, and buff to reveal accessories that rival their freshly-bought shine.


Arts and Crafts Extraordinaire:
Shaving cream is a fantastic tool for arts and crafts. Create marbled paper by adding drops of food coloring to a plate of shaving cream.
