Alert reader JM sent us a link to Joey Green's site which features "wacky uses" of lip balm!

Have you guys used lip balm for any of these wacky things?

* Preventing car battery corrosion
* Grooming a mustache or eyebrows
* Lubricating nails and screws

If not, what other ways do you use for your balm? I'll use it as a makeshift hand lotion. It doesn't work great, but sometimes you gotta do it.

I've been out riding my bike and used it as extra sunscreen for my nose, when I thought the stuff I'd originally applied had probably been sweated off.

It's also great to moisturize cuticles in a pinch.

Yep, sunscreen. I actually have a sunscreen that's like a big lip balm. When I forget to use it (mostly on my wrist tattoo), I'll pull out the lip balm with sunscreen.

Okay, I grew up in the suburbs and often had to gas up a car. Most gas stations in my town didn't have that little metal 'catch' that keeps the pump trigger up without holding it the whole time, but I quickly learned that the chapstick I always had on me fit in there perfectly and I've never looked back, its one of those times the universe just aligns and makes sense. So if you come across one of those gas things you gotta hold, slide a chap stick in there, get back in the car and finish your smoothie or whatever!
