I want to express melting naturally or smoothly like butter in everyday life. How do you like it? Can I write "smooth life butter in daily"?

    I the title you have "smooth like butter in daily life", and in the body you have "smooth life butter in daily". Which phrase are you asking about?

  • What is "smooth like butter". Is this a metaphor like "The installation of the software was smooth like butter", or "My daily life is smooth like butter"?

  • Thank you, everyone. I wanted to choose a brand slogan that means it naturally melts into everyday life. It's a figurative expression, but I want to use the phrase "It melts naturally like butter in everyday life."

  • "It naturally melts" ... What is "it"

  • @haley, if you provide additional information, please edit your question to add the information, rather than just adding a comment.

Normally we say "as smooth as" rather than "smooth like". I don't understand what you are trying to add with "in daily life".

I would go for this:

melting as smoothly as butter.

  • How, though, does butter melt smoothly? I can imagine butter, not melted when applied, but melted by the relevant friction, being a lubricant, and, indeed, there are plenty of homely examples one can imagine. Sep 25 at 11:22
  • @MichaelHarvey you have obviously never made gingerbread. "First, melt the butter..."

  • But it, er, just melts, like, ice, wax or palm oil, yes, smoothly (i.e. not in a series of jumps). Everything melts smoothly. Sep 25 at 11:35

    @MichaelHarvey noooo! It's a goldilocks situation: water and wax aren't viscous enough, plastic is too viscous... and metals actually melt very fast when you get to the right temperature. Melting butter is viscous, silky... excuse me, I think I'll go and make some gingerbread....
