5 Surprising and Amazing Hacks for Ketchup

Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Last week I shared with you ingenious hacks with household products. Today I want to share with you some surprising and ingenious household hacks with ketchup. Besides using this amazing condiment in your food, you can use this item in your household as well.

1. Use Instead of Shaving Cream

Smooth on a thin layer over the area needing to be shaved. Shave and then rinse well. It can be applied to any spot on the body that you would normally shave including your face, armpits, and legs.

2. Sooth Insect Bites

The salt content in Ketchup can draw out some of the inflammation of insect bites. So dab a bit on the bites!  It also works for soothing other types of insect bites like those from bees and spiders. It won’t stop the swelling but it will fight the itchiness and soreness, and keep it from getting out of control.

3. Bring Shine To Copper and Silverware

Due to its acetic acid content, ketchup is a surprisingly good item to use to shine copper and silverware. Massaging a little tomato sauce around the metal items will take them from dull-looking to sparkling like new. It will literally dissolve away years of tarnish in seconds. Just don’t leave it on too long as it could begin to damage the metal.

4. Repair Blonde

For blonde hair that has gone green from chlorine or saltwater, shampoo your hair as normal, then rinse tomato ketchup through your hair and leave it on for about 5 minutes. Wash it out thoroughly. Shampoo and condition as normal.

5. Remove Rust Off Furniture


The natural acids of ketchup will neutralize the rust. Rub ketchup on the furniture frame. When the rust becomes like powder, rinse it off with water. Ketchup will easily remove all of that unsightly rust that forms on garden furniture over time.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. What other ketchup hacks do you know of? Please leave your feedback. I look forward to reading your feedback and comments.

I consider myself fortunate to have good health, a full-time job, and a roof over my head. However, there are still so many people who are struggling to put food on their tables. Please join me to help those who are struggling. If you have good health, full-time jobs, and a roof over your head, please join me to help those who are struggling. Whether you donate $5 or $500, you will make a huge difference in someone’s life.

No Kid Hungry:

America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to my gofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.

Food Bank of Maryland:


Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic.

Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.

Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.

Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
