Seven incredible uses of salt you may not know

Seven incredible uses of salt you may not know|

You cannot imagine food without it, it would not pass through your throats in its absence. A trenchman would heartily assent to that. But this itsy bitsy mineral does not only adds taste to food, rather it is capable of doing  several chores you can’t imagine of.  

Following are its incredible uses,

Cleaning artificial flowers and leaves 

Place them in a bag with one cup salt and give them a good shake. It will remove most of the dirt and dust.

Removing stains from skin 

Salt aids in removing fruit and vegetable stains from skin. Rub your hands with some salt and water and then rub them on stainless steel and see the stains gradually fade away.

Cleaning metal 

You can clean metals like copper, brass silver to a sparkling shine by rubbing them with a mixture of salt and burnt charcoal.

In washing your veggies 

Salt has anti-microbial properties and hence is an inexpensive means to clean your vegetables.

Keep milk fresh 

Sounds unbelievable, but by adding a pinch of salt to milk you can prevent it from getting spoilt.

Remove foul smell 

You can place a packet of salt in shoes, closets, racks and almirahs to remove old, stale smell.

For stronger teeth 

Mix salt with your regular toothpaste/with mustard oil and massage your gums and teeth to keep them strong and free from disease.
