Strawberries

Not just for: pouring cream over
They can also be used for: your teeth
Come again? No, we’re not talking about when you get those pesky seeds stuck between them. It might sound strange but advocates say that smearing the berries over your teeth will turn them into pearly whites. We're not convinced, tbh.

Milk

Not just for: soaking your cereal in 
They can also be used for: your feet
Come again? Lactic acid found in milk is said to be a natural skin softener so for an at-home pedicure, soak your feet in a small basin of milk – any temperature you like. Or not. Your call.

Avocado

Not just for: your guacamole
They can also be used for: your face
Come again? Well, Victoria Beckham swears by an avocado face mask. We still think we'd rather just mash it up with some salt, pepper and a squirt of lemon juice.

Wine

Not just for: your Friday night tipple
Can also be used for: a bath
Come again? Goodbye bubbles and smelly salts, the latest bizarre anti-ageing fix on the beauty scene is filling your bath with red wine. According to some beauty therapists, the suggestion is that some antioxidants found in vino tinto could be more effective at preventing wrinkles than vitamin E. Not sure our white towels would be up for that beauty try-out.

Coconut oil

Not just for: cooking your veggies in
They can also be used for: removing that stubborn waterproof makeup
