Uses for Chapstick

Most of the time, you would carry around ChapStick in your purse, pocket, etc, for your lips. But it is also good to have for other purposes.


  • In case you get a paper-cut or or a minor skin wound.

  • Use it as a sunscreen.

  • You can use it to make a fire last longer, or to make a candle. You can make a candle by sticking the base of a match into the tube, and then lighting the tip.

  • You can waterproof shoes by rubbing it onto them.

  • You can use it as a lubricant on zippers or an oil to keep knifes from rusting.

  • Keep glasses from fogging up. Rub ChapStick onto the glasses then wipe it off, it should be clear, and unable to fog.

  • When your tube is empty don't throw it away. Use it as a storage department, clean it out, and store money in it. But I strongly suggest if you have a tendency to lose ChapStick containers do not put money into it.

Hopefully one of these uses will come handy for you!

I'm a pretty avid crafter and always seem to have my hands in things that are not good for them. Lately I've been applying ChapStick to my cuticles a couple times a week before going to sleep, and it's worked miracles on the condition of my hands. . .
