The Many Uses of Coconut Oil in Your Apartment Near The Villages, FL

There has been a lot of buzz lately about coconut oil and its versatile uses. It can be used as an alternative to other cooking oils and butter, and even as a lotion on your skin. But there are other ways that coconut oil can be used that many people are not as familiar with.
Here are some surprising uses for coconut oil:

  • Wood cutting board conditioner – Cutting boards can start to splinter from moisture exposure over time. Wood polish is not advisable to use on a surface on which food is placed, so instead, coconut oil can be used as an alternative. The coconut oil should be rubbed onto a clean wood cutting board using a soft cloth, left to sit for 10 to 15 minutes, and then removed with a fresh cloth.

  • Makeup remover – The skin on the face is more delicate and sensitive than the rest of the body. You can use coconut oil to safely remove your makeup instead of using harsh cleaners. Simply apply the oil to your face with your fingertips and then rinse with water. 

  • Coffee creamer – Coconut oil is a lower-calorie alternative to sugar and cream in coffee, but can still add a sweet and creamy flavor. It must be added when the coffee is piping hot, in order to ensure the oil dissolves completely.

These are just a few of the ways that someone can benefit from coconut oil in their apartment near The Villages, FL.  If you would like more information about becoming a resident at PepperTree Apartment Homes, contact us today.
