Actually there are some handy uses for a pumice stone besides using on your feet or body.

Did you know that a pumice stone is formed when lava and water mix together? This makes it into a light yet abrasive stone used to remove dry, dead skin. A pumice stone can also soften your calluses and corns to reduce pain from friction.

Here are 7 alternative uses for a pumice stone.

1. Clean the oven 

If you are looking for a chemical-free way to clean your oven this is for you. Simply wet a pumice stone and gently buff off grease and burnt on messes. Keep the stone wet to avoid any scratches on the surface.

2.  DIY tea light candle holder

Easily carve out a base to fit a tea light candle. All you need for this is a butter knife and spoon.

3. Essential oil diffuser

Filled with lots of air spaces, this volcanic rock is ideal for soaking up essential oils and slowly releasing them back into the air. All you need is an inexpensive small mesh bag. Soak a pumice stone with around 30 drops of your favourite essential oil(s). Place the stone in the mesh bag and place it on a surface or hang it anywhere in your home. Replenish the oil when you need to and keep your home smelling nice and lovely all year round.

4. De-pill sweaters 

Those little balls hanging off your favorite sweaters can be so annoying but easily removed. Take a pumice stone and lightly run it over the fabric and it should easily catch the balls. Prevent further pilling by turning garments inside out before washing them.

5. Clean the toilet 

Toilets that are dirty, stained, or have a build up of mineral deposits can be difficult to deal with. Simply wet the toilet and bowl with a spray bottle containing half vinegar and half water or your usual bathroom cleaner. Leave for 15 minutes then with a wet pumice stone gently scrub the stains. 

6. Remove rust from tools 

There is nothing more annoying than seeing rust surface on your favorite household or gardening tools. Before throwing them in the garbage try this method. Lay down a clean cloth or towel on a flat surface. Fill a small bowl with some water for dipping the stone to keep it wet. Rub the stone over any affected areas of your tools. Use the cloth or towel to thoroughly dry your tools after getting rid of the rust.

7. Remove pet hair 

An effective way to remove pet hair from the sofa, rugs, and car seats is to scrub the area with a pumice stone.
