Alternative Uses for Oatmeal in Ottawa

Oatmeal, alas, has a reputation for being bland and healthy. But don’t overlook this versatile food! You can use oatmeal to improve your health, entertain your kids and beautify your home for rent in Ottawa. For best results, use whole-grain, steel-cut oats, also known as coarse-cut or Irish oats.

alternative uses of oatmeals

  1. For a healthy glow: Brighten your skin with a paste of oatmeal, honey and lemon juice.  Apply to the face, wait 15 minutes and then rinse with tepid water. To treat acne, cook a bit of oatmeal, let cool until lukewarm, and apply to the problem areas. Wait 15 minutes and then rinse.
  2. Combat odours: Oatmeal is great at absorbing odours in houses for rent in Ottawa.  Place an open container in your fridge to soak up the smells of garlic or fish. If you have yet to give up smoking, line ashtrays with oatmeal flakes to neutralise the awful smoke smell in your Ottawa rental.
  3. Skin Rx: Oatmeal relieves irritations such as sunburn and poison ivy, and it heals open pores. Fill the bathtub with lukewarm water and add one cup of milk, two cups of uncooked oatmeal and a tablespoon of honey. Soak for 15 to 20 minutes, and your skin will be beautifully moisturised.
  4. Entertain your children: Mix one cup of rolled oats with a little water and flour, add the food colouring of your choice, and you have a non-toxic clay for kids to make bowls, beads, figures, etc.
  5. Organise, organise, organise: Oatmeal canisters are great to store dried goods in the kitchen, or stash craft items such as beads and buttons, or house all those office supplies. They are also the perfect size for storing rolls of toilet paper. Go ahead – try it and dazzle your neighbours in Ottawa rentals with your ingenuity!
