Do not forget to buy the biggest bottle next. It can serve you not only at the dining table but the kitchen and bathroom equally well.

Clean your saucepan Just add a drop of it into the dirty pan and rub with a sponge. The acetic acid of the ketchup makes it shinier than ever.

Make Your Own Facemask- The lycopene present in it is an antioxidant that will leave your face wonderfully soft after you apply it on your face and wash it off after 15 minutes.

Keep the fur of your dog clean- The yucky smell that your dogs fur develops from time to time will not go away easily. You can, however, try to give your dog a good rub with ketchup. The vinegar in it will help to prevent the stickiness and you can then easily brush his fur clean.

Condition your hair Rub ketchup into your hair to make it glossier. The acids present in the ketchup keep your hair cuticles flat and the result is a head full of shiny lustrous locks.
