Helpful Household Tips: Try the Salt


Millions of pounds of salt cover our world, thousands of which are consumed by humans every year.  Salt is great for omelets, French Fries and so much more, but what else can it be used for?  There are a multitude of household uses for salt including:

  • Speed the water boiling process.  Adding a small amount of salt to a pot of water will help it to boil more quickly.
  • Refresh a dish sponge by soaking it in salt-water over night.
  • Poison ivy, bee stings and other insect bites can be treated with salt.
  • Smelly sneakers?  Salt is here to help.  Sprinkle a little salt in the shoes to help remove that pungent odor. 
  • Keep ants outside by sprinkling salt on the bottom of your door frame.
  • When you purchase new towels, the washing process can often make the colors fade.  Add some salt to their first wash to help the colors stay in-tact.
  • Salt and a touch of water can kill weeds in your driveway or patio.  Mix the salt and water before applying to the unwanted plant or place salt directly on the weed and spray with water after.
