    Oiling my bike chains!

    Are there any other uses to vegetable oil, as I have lots, and I only oil my bike chains so often...

    You can use it to polish stainless steel.

    I used mine up on wooden things -- handles of some kitchen utensils, some carvings, bowls. I think it might get gunky on bike chains.

    It is good for seasoning and prepping the BBQ smoker.

    Also, you can put it in your diesel truck.

    I've used it in combination with salt to get oil-based paint off my hands.

    Oils of all kinds work really well at removing make-up (without tears!). I used to get heavy stage make-up off with crisco, and I use coconut oil for my mascara/eyeliner, simply because I have it. But now you're making me think I should buy some cheap vegetable oil for my lids!

    Use it in a vintage Uncandle or make your own oil-burning lamp.

    List it on Craigs and some bio-diesel hobbyist will scoop it up.
