Alternate uses for food

A recent video on this site which shows how to use peanut butter to fix scratches on a DVD got me thinking about other foods we use in nonfood ways:
People on TV sitcoms and in cartoons always use raw steak to put on a black eye. Personally, I've never seen anyone do this in real life but I'm sure it's been done.
Kids use pasta/macaroni for art projects in grammar school.
Mr. Potato head and all of his relatives and friends (the original sets also suggested using onions, peppers, oranges, etc.)
Oatmeal is used to exfoliate the skin.
Butter and Crisco are used as sexual lubricants.
What can you add to the list?
Vinegar as a cleaner.
Baking soda as a cleaner, toothpaste, air deodorizer.
Olive oil in DIY cosmetics.
Sugar and salt in DIY exfoliants.
Avocado, cucumber and various fruits and vegetables in face masks, etc.
Hell, this was the 80s. No one used moist heat. Ice was the rage. Painkillers were to shut you up and the speed was so you'd go to class, and beer, oh yeah, beer. Plus, if you were lucky, and won that week, a guy on your floor would stop by with some weed. Not sure how I graduated, actually . . . .
