13. Stop hinges from squeaking
Does your front door or favorite wardrobe squeak loudly when you’re trying to avoid waking the whole house? A little petroleum jelly on the hinge pins should sort this problem out right away.
14. Get chewing gum off wood
Finally, if your naughty child has stuck chewing gum onto the underside of your coffee table or you’ve just dropped a used piece onto your wooden floor, don’t fret! In either case, if you squeeze some petroleum jelly onto the gum, you’ll find that gentle rubbing quickly starts to disintegrate the sticky substance. It can then be easily removed.
