Everyone knows you can put mayo in a potato salad or on a sandwich, but do you know the other uses for it? I bet you didn’t know that you can make your own mayonnaise really easily and cheaper than buying it?

How to Make Your Own Mayonnaise

Making your own mayo is so easy!  You only need a few ingredients and about 10 minutes!  Just get out your ingredients, mix together, and remember to add your oil VERY SLOWLY to get the right consistency.  If you add it too fast, you’ll break your mayo! If you do break it, there is a fix!  Whisk an egg and slowly add your broken mayo to it, making sure to SLOWLY add and keep whipping.

Ingredients for Homemade Mayonnaise

  • A blender or mixer
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil or for a healthier option, olive oil
  • 3 Large Egg Yolks
  • 2 Tbsp. White Vinegar
  • Juice from 1/2 a Lemon
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Pinch of salt

How to Make Homemade Mayonnaise

  1. Place egg yolks in a blender or mixing bowl. Add lemon juice, vinegar and 2 Tbsp water.
  2. Add seasonings. You may wish to add a tsp of dry mustard for extra “zing”.
  3. On medium speed, mix ingredients together. SLOWLY drizzle oil in. You may even wish to do it spoonful by spoonful. Doing it slowly is important to the proper consistency.
  4. Whisk on medium until it reaches the proper consistency. It probably won’t get as solid as store bought mayo, but will be close. You can store it for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.

How to Use Homemade Mayonnaise

Now that you know how to make mayo, check out these 10 awesome ways you can use it!

  1. Got some gum or sap on your clothing? You can use mayo to remove it by simply rubbing it into your clothes or hair.
  2. Is your ring too tight because the summer is making your hands swell? Use a dab of mayo to make it slide off easier.
  3. Take mayo from blah to awesome by adding flavors to it. Mix in a bit of chipolte powder and you have a nice spicy sauce. Out of tartar sauce? Just add sweet relish and lemon juice.
  4. If the kids have colored on the walls with crayons, use mayo to clean it off. Just make sure to wipe with a damp towel after so it leaves no oily residue.
  5. Stop an annoying squeaky door with a little mayo as a lubricant.

  10. If you want your houseplants looking shiny, gently rub mayo on the leaves. This also gives your plants added protein.
