We don't use honey for much more than sweetening our tea. However, it's another one of those super-versatile household ingredients. We wouldn't recommend cleaning with it, but you might want to put an extra jar in your medicine cabinet.

Growing up, mom always made us hot lemon and honey when we had a cough or sore throat and we'd read before that honey has some healing properties, but we had no idea how many possible ways it could be applied.

But Life Hackery has put together a list of 15 unconventional uses for honey. Pretty interesting.

Because a lot of these examples are medical, we'd definitely recommend consulting a doctor before swapping any of your medicines for honey (especially if you have a serious condition).

Do you use honey for anything other than tea?
