Peanut Butter Good For You And Around The House

Did crayola introduce a new crayon called peanut butter? And if they did, would it be smooth or crunchy? No there isn't a new crayon called peanut butter, at least not that I'm aware of.

I'm thinking back to the day when I was child and I was opening a fresh jar of peanut butter, slowly ripping back the security sealed, paperback foil and to my delight seeing a single peanut nestled in the center of the peanut butter. Mmmm....the aroma....smooth and sticky....It's a child's and adult's comfort food not unless you have a nut allergy. Peanut butter is not just great on bread with jam or smeared on a stalk of celery or apples eaten with them, but it's a wonderful household cleaning item. Yes, you read that right. It's a remarkable multi-purpose item. Who would have thought roasted peanuts crushed into a paste, a staple item in many homes around the world could be used as a cleaning item?

Here's some cool facts about peanuts:
Peanuts are not nuts. They are legumes.
One acre of peanuts will make 30,000 peanut butter sandwiches.
There are many uses for their shells. Such as, fuel for power plants, fireplace logs, paper and animal feed.

Peanut butter uses:
Removes adhesive on items
Removes bubble gum from hair
Remove crayon drawings on walls and tables
Mouse trap - not really a trap as the mouse will lick it off before it gets trapped

Months ago, I had a problem with ants so ant traps were bought and I noticed there were peanut butter in them along with whatever poison there was. So again, here's another way of using peanut butter. If you're opposed to using poisons, they are other effective ways of getting rid of ants safely without the use of chemicals or poisons, but that's another story altogether.

Peanut butter in a nutshell bring smiles to the faces of children and adults alike and most of us have it in our pantries. The next time your child has a mess of gum in her hair, forget the scissors. You know what's waiting for you in the pantry.
