If corn oil is made with corn and peanut oil is made with peanuts, then what is baby oil made with?
The answer: Baby oil is made with mineral oil and fragrance by industrial professionals; babies don’t have the fine motor skills or chemistry knowledge to create baby oil, duh.
Baby oil is useful for a lot of things beyond baby bottoms. It’ll smooth, soften, lubricate, refinish, clean, and so much more. It also has some usual uses for which it really oughtn’t be used. Read on for some tips and tricks that’ll help you step your baby oil game up.
Step 1: First, Some Don’ts
Don’t use baby oil to tan. Melanoma looks bad enough without being shiny.
Don’t eat baby oil. It has laxative properties and likely doesn’t taste delicious. (Mineral oil is safe for human consumption, but only up to around 100 mg. Many of those milligrams come from food-grade mineral oil that’s used in baking and other industrial food processing places because it’s odorless and tasteless. My guess is that baby oil mineral oil isn’t food-grade. Stay safe: don’t guzzle a bottle of it.)
Don’t use it in your 2-stroke engine.
Don’t aim baby oil at helicopter pilots. Wait… that’s for lasers. But you should still be careful around helicopter pilots with baby oil. It can be a slip-fall hazard, and pilots prefer the scent of aviation fuel.”
