There’s little things more comforting than a cup of coffee and some peanut butter on toast. Old or young, human or dog, if there’s one thing we can all agree on it’s our love for this nutty, protein-packed treat.

It’s a safe bet that peanut butter, as popular and useful as it as food-wise, is in almost every house.

What do you put at the end of a mouse trap? Cheese, right? Because mice love cheese! Wrong. That’s what cartoons have made you believe, but, in reality, mice aren’t big fans of cheese. They do, however, love peanut butter. (Can you blame them?) Put a big spoonful at the end of a humane mousetrap, and you’ll get them out of your house in no time!

5.Shaving cream

If you’re all out of shaving cream, never fear! Smear on a thin layer of smooth peanut butter and shave as you normally would. The oils in the peanut butter keep the razor from nicking your face or legs, and also acts as a moisturizer!
