Oatmeal may not be the most exciting breakfast option in the world, but in uncooked form the oats can be used to neutralize odors in your refrigerator, relieve your dog's itchy skin, soak up kitchen oil spills and treat your poison ivy or chicken pox itch.
Sick of cooking oatmeal for breakfast? Run your oats through a processor into a fine powder and use to thicken your soups and stews and as a cooking substitute for breadcrumbs.
If you are ever in a creative rut, you can mix oatmeal with all-purpose flour and water to make pliable modeling clay.
