Peanut butter is great in sandwiches, baked into cookies, or just spread onto crackers, but have you ever given any thought to using peanut butter in other ways? We all know it's good for getting gum out of your hair, but there are other uses for peanut butter around the house that you may not know about.

But peanut butter also works to lure pesky pests out of hiding, take off price tags, and more. Learn all the unusual ways to utilize peanut butter below!

(Just one tip: for all these methods, you'll want to use creamy peanut butter -- not chunky!)
