100 Uses for Avon's Skin So Soft


1. It's a bath oil and after shower moisturizer.

2. It can be used to remove makeup.

3. Great tanning oil (no sunscreen).

4. Hot oil treatment to soften cuticles.

5. Great massage oil for tired muscles.

6. Cleans off tape marks left from bandages on skin.

7. Cleans ink off the skin.

8. Insect repellent.

9. Helps relieve itching caused by dry skin.

10. Cleans oil and grease off of skin.

11. Painting something? Use SSS to remove paint from the hands. (Instead of turpentine).

12. It soothes light sunburn.

13. Rub hands with it before washing, it helps get them cleaner.

14. Rub on dry, cracked skin.... helps heal skin in 2-3 days.

15. Put 1-2 cap fills in liquid soap and use it for shaving legs and under arms. Helps razor glide and leaves skin feeling smooth.

16. Pour a little into your Foot Saver to help moisturize your feet while you relax them.

17. It removes chewing gum from hair, skin, and most nonporous surfaces.

18. Cleans permanent ink off stamps.

19. SSS Original Bath Oil works GREAT on Head Lice!!!!! Saturate head and leave it on for an hour or overnight (wrap head in a plastic bag or use a shower cap). Then rinse and shampoo hair at least twice to get all the oil out.  Comb through the hair with a nit comb to remove the nits (this is very important).  Repeat a week later just to make sure you didn't miss any nits that may have hatched.  Skin so Soft has no harmful chemicals and doesn't smell bad....it's an inexpensive way to treat the problem. 

20. It kills ants instantly.

21. Spray on skin to relieve dry itching skin. Helps skin retain it's elasticity.

22. Wash hair with shampoo and conditioner like always and after it dries.... Use about the size of a dime of SSS and rub it in your hair. It goes straight in and leaves hair as shiny as the ads on TV, not greasy at all, just soft and shiny.

23. Use bath oil towelettes -- cover windowsill with towelettes to keep ants out.

24. (LICE) Sometimes, using a bath oil, like Avon's SSS, will work to loosen the glue, which holds the nits to the hair. There is a product called Neon Nits, which when sprayed on the hair, will highlight the nits so you can see them to then snip them out with a small scissors.

25. Mild cases of psoriasis.

26. Bath use, fill bath with water and a little SSS, very relaxing and gets rid of dry skin.


27. Sponge it around doors, windows, and on screens to keep crawling bugs out.

28. It's a good wood cleaner and conditioner for natural wood.

29. It removes glue and gum left from price tags and labels from glass, metals, and most plastics.

30. It removes soap scum from shower doors and curtains, and bathroom and kitchen figures.

31. It removes lime and hard water deposits from fixtures, tile, shower doors and windows.

32. It's an oil lubricant for fitting pipe joints that won't slip together.

33. It cleans ink off most vinyl and painted surfaces.

34. It cleans heavy oil and grease from nonporous surfaces.

35. It takes fur off of clothing.

36. Rub on brass ornaments or figurines to help keep them from turning dark.

37. Removes crayon from appliances and most painted surfaces.

38. Wash cupboards with it mixed in your cleaning water to keep ants off and out of the cupboards.

39. Use it to discourage hornets from building their nests. After using a hornet killing spray, remove the nest and keep the area sprayed with SSS. They will not rebuild there.

40. Use it to clean leather; it will also keep it soft and supple.

41. Use it on your air conditioning screen (filter)--your incoming air will smell fresher and the filter is easier to clean.

42. Rub all over windowsills to keep ants out.

43. It cleans paintbrushes easily and leaves them soft as new.

44. It removes gum from carpets.

48. It removes liquid nail (paneling glue).

49. Two glass bowls or glasses stuck together? Drizzle a little SSS down the sides and they'll come apart easily.

50. It removes candle wax from furniture, carpets and clothing.

51. Hummingbird Feeders: To deter bees try rubbing SSS on the feeder surface by the feeder ports.

52. Maggots too!! You squirted SSS in can and lid, then later flushed with soapy water, you shouldn't have any bugs in cans rest of summer!!!

53. It is a great furniture polish!

54. Ok, we have a new use for SSS bath oil. Put it in one of the bottle that you attach to your backyard hose and then spray down the back yard! Will cut down on ants, mosquitoes and other creepy crawlies.

55. Spray it on rose bushes to keep the deer from eating them, and at the cemeteries on the flowers they put out there for the same reason.

56. Kills spiders.

57. It cuts grease and cleans dirt from range hoods.

58. Add a capful to wash water of clothes...acts as a fabric softener and keeps the bugs off clothes.

59. Spray on orchids and other flowers for moisture and to keep bugs away.

60. Cleans baseball caps. Just spray on and rub with toothbrush.

61. Mix one part SSS and 2 parts water on tomato plants and kept those ugly old tomato worms off. I think that adding the vinegar would be fine too and would be nice not to have to shake the spray bottle all the time. Spray plants about every 2 or 3 days.

62. SSS bath oil also does a great job cleaning cherry wood cabinets.

63. Put a little in your mopping water to help keep crawling bugs out. (Not too much or the floor gets slippery.)

64. Use to clean windows.

65. Removes crayon from most surfaces. 66. It's a great insect repellent (or you can use Bug Guard, the actual SSS repellent)

67. Screens can be lightly sprayed with Avon SSS to repel no-see-'ums and tiny gnats that otherwise might slip though the screens.

68. Another use for SSS is it will kill those pesky earwigs. Spray it on & they don't return to life.

69. Also if you ever make candles, use clear wax and melt put SSS in it and harden works great for out side in the summer.

70. As a deodorizer, spray into air and let settle, kills those nasty pet orders.

71. Kids rooms if a child wets the bed, spray the bedding and sheets before washing and will give it a fresh clean smell.


72. It's a great insect repellent for your pet. (As recommended in "Outdoor Life" and "Field and Stream")

73. Mix 5 parts water, 1 part SSS and mist on animals. Brushing it in makes their coats gleam and keeps insects off so the animals don't fidget in the show ring.

74. Mix in your pet's bath water. It takes the fleas off of them...and in between sprays them with the same mixture as in #2 to help keep them off.

75. Rub on your hands before and after working with your pets and farm animals. It will remove the strong smells.

76. Black Fly Spray For Dogs: Use as a spray or a dip. 1 cup SSS, 1/2 cup liquid detergent and 3 gallons of water.

77. For dogs dry skin mix 1 tablespoon of SSS per gallon of water and use as an after bath rinse. Or spritz your pet's coat once per week.

78. If your dog should get tar or asphalt on the pads of their feet rub on SSS and then wipe off.

79. Flea Bath: Use a flea and tick shampoo. Rinse, rinse, rinse so no soap residue is left. Follow with final rinse of 2 gallons of water mixed with flea dip and 1 capful of SSS. The SSS helps replace the oils lost in bathing and has the added benefit of repelling insects.

80. Flea Repellent: Avon's SSS Bath Oil. 1-1/2 ounces per gallon of water; used as a sponge-on dip (or as a spritz) has been tested and proven to have significant, but not complete, flea-repellent activity for a 6-day period. It should help those dry coats, too.

81. Many chows have very dry and flaky skin, especially for being black. Use it about twice a month just spray it on.

82. Use the following on horses and on dogs when necessary. 1-cup Avon SSS bath oil 1-cup white vinegar 1-cup (or more) water 5 cc of essential oil of citronella (from the health food store NOT the type you burn to keep insects away that is available in a drug store) Mix in a spray bottle.

83. (Barns) Use of an inexpensive fly control spray or a diluted mix of Avon SSS in water can be sprayed on barn walls and floor to discourage insects from hanging around or to eliminate them before putting in the new bedding. As time permits let the barn stand and air out before re-filling with bedding.

84. Rub on your hands before and after working with pets and farm animals, takes away pet odor.

85. Avon's SSS bath oil massaged directly into the skin of your Rottweiler acts not only as a successful repellant and makes their dogs smell good but helps prevent drying and itchy skin.
86. A natural way to help cats with flea problems and flea allergies is to rub Skin So Soft into the skin. Once a bug, always a bug. Fleas don't like it either! Spread the word!

87. Cats: SSS IS SAFE FOR FUR LICKING -------The SSS plus is safe as long as it is the one without sunscreen.

88. Don't overuse the SSS. I just use the lotion, and rub it into the skin, not more than every few days. My cat's sensitive and we're being careful. Common sense is the rule. Sprinkling Yeast on the cat food helps, too. My cat's fur is medium-length; he's part Persian, and he's doing fine, no ill effects from the SSS. You can check with your vet to be sure if it's okay...


89. SSS can be used as a hoof polish. This will put a nice shine to the hoof without drying it. The farrier's wife will appreciate this one!

90. SSS can be used as a muzzle, eye, and ear enhancer. Generally we used baby oil but it was so messy. I tried SSS and it works great and still helps keep bugs away.

91. I have a show mare that has allergies and also gets dry skin very easily so I started giving her baths in SSS. What I do is bathe her like normal and then I put a capful of SSS in a 5-gallon bucket of warm water and sponge this all over her. Her hair coat dries silky soft and she quits itching. Works for her.

92. The bug guard towelettes we had last summer work great on the horse’s ears and around their eyes.

93. When I have to band (braid) their manes I use the Techniques Oil Sheen. It seems to help hold the braids a lot better and they don't try to rub them out.

94. The dry end serum works great in their tails as a detangler. Everything I have mentioned here I use faithfully on our show horses. The products are a heck of a lot cheaper than actual horse products.


95. It removes tar spots from the car without damage to the paint.

96. Use it to clean vinyl dashboards, seats, and tops. It not only cleans, but also keeps it soft and helps to prevent any cracking.

97. After washing your car, use it as a tire dressing to keep them looking like new. 98. Put some on a small washcloth and leave in the car to help keep the air fresh and clean.

99. Wipe down vinyl surfaces inside your car. Cleans nicely and removes smoke odors left by cigarette smokers.

100. It gently cleans heavy grease and oil from skin and nonporous surfaces (great for Mechanic's Hands).

***Skin-So-Soft bath oil is approved by the FDA/CDA only as a bath oil. This list of uses comes from customers. Avon does not endorse the product with these uses.  This list was compiled from various customers and sales representatives.

How much does it cost to get started?
  • If you sign up with me face to face, it only costs $10.00, if you sign up online, it only costs $20.00...the difference is the cost of shipping the starter kit to you.  Still an incredible deal!!!
What is included in the started kit?
  • You will receive everything you need to get started selling Avon right way including:
    • 10 brochures for the current campaign
    • 10 brochures for the next campaign
    • Samples
    • Order book
    • Training material
    • Avon tote bag
What other supplies do I need to purchase that are not included in the kit?
  • Your kit comes with everything you need to start, however, there are some things that I would recommend you purchase, but they are not necessary.....these include door hanger bags (50 for .50cents) "popcorn" bags for deliveries, order book cover etc.....any business tools you purchase from Avon are pretty cheap.
  • As an Independent Avon Sales Representative, you own your own business, so you are responsible for purchasing the things necessary to run that business such as brochures, samples (most samples will cost you $1.00 - $2.00 for a pack of 10) basic office supplies etc.  You get brochures in your starter kit for the first 2 campaigns, after that you must purchase them, the more you buy, the less they costs....for example 10 brochures cost $5.75, 100 brochures cost $19.00.
  • You are not required to purchase anything, but remember that your brochures are your "store".
How does Avon work?  What is a campaign?
  • Selling Avon is very easy, you hand brochures out to family, friends, co-workers etc. or you direct them to your website where they can also view the brochure.  They can either give you the order or they can order online. 
  • A campaign is the selling period for each brochure and lasts 2 weeks.  At the end of the campaign you submit your orders to Avon.  You are billed the discounted price and your customers pay you the brochure price.  You then pay Avon and the difference is your profit.  If your customers order online, Avon ships the order directly to them and credits your account....you basically don't have to do anything!  And, if you have 3 or more orders placed online, you make 40% automatically on those orders!
How much can I make selling Avon?
  • A newly appointed representative will receive 40% earnings on their first 4 campaigns (2 months) After your first 4 campaigns, the commission structure is as follows:
ORDER SIZE:                            EARNINGS:

$0          -       $49.99                            0%
$50        -       $144.00                        20%
$145      -       $284.99                        30%
$285      -       $424.99                        35%
$425      -       $899.99                        40%
$900      -       $1549.99                      45%
$1550+                                               50%

*licenced products earn you a fixed 20%

Right now, Avon runs an incentive for ONLINE orders.....
  • If you service
    1 eCustomerUp to 25% earnings.
    *2 eCustomersUp to 35%* earnings.
    *3+ eCustomersUp to 45%* earnings
How to Qualify for e-Selling Earnings Extravaganza:
  • When an e-Representative services 2 e-Customers per campaign, during the incentive timeframe, they will receive 10% additional earnings on all full commission products that are shipped via Direct Delivery.
  • When an e-Representative services 3 or more e-Customers per campaign, during the incentive timeframe, they will receive 20% additional earnings on all full commission products that are shipped via Direct Delivery.

This is just the basic commission structure, there are many, many more earning opportunities with the Leadership Program, President's Club, Rose Circle, etc....

Do I have to keep any inventory on hand?
  • At Avon, you are never required to keep a stock of products on hand.  You order as your customers order, unless of course you want to have products available for your customers right away, it is completely up to you.
Is it hard to sell Avon?
  • Avon is one of the best known brands in the world, they have been in business for 125 years!  When you say Avon, everyone knows what you're talking about so it makes it easy to sell.
How much does the average Avon customer order?
  • The average customer order is $25.00
Are there quotas to meet selling Avon?
  • There are no quotas to meet selling Avon, but you do need to place an order every 2 or 3 campaigns to say active, the size of the order does not matter and ordering brochures counts as an order.
Can I sell Avon online?
  • YES!  When you sign up to become a representative, you will have the choice if you want to become an eRepresentative, if you do, Avon will give you a website that you can send your customers to and they can order from there and have it delivered directly to their door!!!  No waiting for you to process and deliver their orders, they pay online and Avon credits your account, it's AWESOME! 
Does Avon offer training?
  • YES!  Once you become a representative, you will be given access to a library of online training tools that you can view at your leisure, there is a wealth of information you are supplied with and it's all free!  In addition, if you sign up through myself, I will be there to help you every step of the way, either by telephone or email.....YOUR SUCCESS = MY SUCCESS
Is it mandatory to attend Avon meetings?
  • No, you do not have to attend any meetings, but if you can fit it into your schedule, it's a great thing to do to have questions answered, get free samples and it keeps you motivated so you can reach your goals!   A meeting once a month is usually do-able and it gets you out of the house and away from the kids for a couple of hours lol
How do I get paid?
  • You are paid when your customer pays you.  When you deliver their order, you collect the money from them.  Avon gives you a line of credit, so you don't have to spend any money up front for your order.  When you receive your invoice from Avon, you pay them....the difference between what your customers pay you and what you owe Avon is your profit, you will have until your next campaign to pay your Avon invoice
  • If your customers order online, you don't have to do anything!!!  No delivering, collecting money, etc. they pay for their order when they place it online and Avon credits your account....IT DOESN'T GET ANY EASIER THAN THAT!!!!
Do I have to pay sales tax?
  • You will have to charge your customer the appropriate sales tax for your state and when you place your order, Avon will add the sales tax to your total cost for that order which means that Avon takes care of sending in sales tax to your state.
Do I need to file income tax?
  • Avon is not required to send your name or SS# to the IRS unless you make more than $5,000 a year.  You would need to check with your accountant for specific tax related questions.
How do I place my orders?
  • You can place your orders online or you can call Avon directly.
How do I pay my invoice from Avon?
  • You can pay them online with a debit or credit card or right from your checking account.  You can also mail them in a payment or make a payment over the phone.
Do I have to sign a contract to become an Avon Representative?
  • There is a contract to sign, but it is only to state that you agree to the terms and conditions of being an Avon Representative.  There is no time commitment on the contract or fees or penalties for ending your relationship with Avon.
Do I have to have parties when I sell Avon?
  • No, you are not required to have any parties.  However, many Avon Representatives find it to be a very lucrative way to sell more product, broaden their customer base and build their business.  It's also a great opportunity to get other people interested in selling Avon. 
Am I required to recruit people to sell Avon?
  • No, there are no recruiting requirements.  Many people join Avon to just sell.  If you are interested in the Leadership program, it can be very lucrative.
