There are a lot of ways to use salt since it was discovered about 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. Not only can it add taste to our food, it could also make home cleaning and self-care way easier. So to begin your easy DIY journey, the website Bright Side listed 10 of the many incredible ways you could use salt at home:
- Removing grease from pots and pans.
Take 1 glass of salt and put it on the greasy surface of the pan. Then use a simple kitchen towel and rub the dirty spots off until they are clean. Finally, wash the pan the way you’d usually do it.
- Removing stains from a wooden cutting board.
Sprinkle some salt onto a dirty wooden surface and rub it in with half of a lemon. Wait until the wood absorbs the mixture, then wash the board with tap water.
- Removing colored residue from a vase.
Make a concentrated salt solution and pour it into the vase to remove the greenish deposit. Shake it well and wash the vase with tap water and soap.
- Making a home-made scrub.
In making DIY scrub, take some salt and butter (1:2 proportion) and mix them. Then put mixture on the face with circular movements.
Advice: It’s better to heat the butter a little in the beginning to make it warm. Wash your face after scrubbing and put your regular moisturizing cream on.
- Protecting cheese from getting moldy.
Wrap your cheese in a piece of fabric soaked in salty water. This way, you will increase the shelf life of the cheese by a few more days.
- Clean tile seams.
Mix 1/2 a glass of salt with 1 gallon of warm water and add a detergent. Wash the entire surface with this solution while focusing more to the seams where the most dirt is.
- Make a foot bath.
Put 1-2 glasses of salt in a small container where you will dip your feet. Add some warm water and keep your legs in the solution until the water cools down.
- Remove tea and coffee spots from your cups.
Mix 1 tbsp of salt and 1 tsp of vinegar and put the solution into a cup with tea or coffee stains. Wait for about a couple of hours and then wash the dishes as usual.
- Get rid of the bitter taste of coffee.
Experts recommend coffee drinkers to add just a little pinch of salt to your cup to make it taste better.
- Whiten your pillows.
Mix 1 tbsp of salt and 1/4 of a glass of soda. Put the mixture into a bowl with boiling water and soak the yellow fabric in this solution for about an hour while keeping the water temperature constant.
