Use Jojoba to Wax Your Snow Shovel

Naturally we try to find as many uses for jojoba as possible. Since jojoba is a natural product, it’s ecologically friendly if we can use it for in place of chemicals for various applications. Now that we are in the height of winter we wanted to share a use that we have found to be quite useful. Using jojoba to wax snow shovels!

Yes - you heard us right - we use jojoba on our snow shovels to keep the snow from sticking!!! Since jojoba is technically a wax ester and not an oil, it will help maintain a very nice slick surface on snow shovels.

Here are a few tips for waxing your snow shovel:
Make sure snow shovel is room temperature. Since jojoba solidifies at temps below 50 degrees, it will solidify like a wax and you won’t be able to apply it easily to a cold shovel.

Pour a teaspoon or so of jojoba onto the shovel and rub in with your fingers. Alternately, you could use a paper towel, but why waste the jojoba, you might as well condition your hands while you condition your shovel. When you’re finished, rub any remaining jojoba into your hands.

Now you’re ready to start shoveling without the hassle of snow sticking to your shovel. Once you try this method you’ll be hooked. Happy shoveling!

Let us know if you have success using jojoba to wax and condition any other item you use in snow or water.

I don't know what I did before I started using your product.
It is by far the finest skin care product I have ever used.

I've ordered jojoba before and your jojoba is leaps and bounds above any other. I could immediately feel the difference in the way it looks, smells & feels on my skin. The first thought in my head was that this is truly an elegant product. I'm glad I purchased it.

I bought your product... and my husband thought it was just another product I had to have - now he uses it all the time and reminded me when we're running low. So we both think it's great. Thanks.

I’ve used other jojoba extracts and this one is by far superior.

I love your stuff. I've been using it for years and refuse to use anything else. I've tried them all. Your jojoba, is by far, the best available.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I have had the pleasure of working with your excellent Jojoba for 11 years as a massage therapist and also for personal use. I have occasionally tried other highly regarded massage oils and lotions over the years but always come back to your product. It is simply the best!

I did a lot of research on what to use on my skin and then where to get it. I know I made the right choice.

Jackie

I love how it absorbs into the skin and leaves it silky smooth, what a fantastic carrier it is for essential oils, that it doesn't go rancid, so my sheets remain sweet-smelling and that the (jojoba) is so stable with an incredible shelf-life. What's not to love?
