1.) For sunburn

If you mix corn starch with water and put it on your sunburn, it will cut down the pain remarkably. It also helps for insect bites and stings.

2.) Squeaky floors

If your floors are squeaking (especially laminate), it could help to sprinkle some corn starch on the area and then sweep it up. The starch fills the tiny cracks and helps prevent the noise.
