Salt is the oldest food seasoning in this world. Without salt, food becomes tasteless. No food is complete without salt.

Brass Cleaner


To remove stubborn tarnish from brass fittings, nameplates and other small objects, rub them with a paste of salt and vinegar or use a salted lemon rind.

China Cups Cleaner


Remove coffee or tea stains from your china cups and mugs by scrubbing with salt or a 50-50 mixture of salt and white vinegar.

Cold and Cough Remedy


To soothe a sore throat, gargle every 2 hours with a solution of 1/4th teaspoon salt dissolved in 1 cup warm water. Salt-water nose drops may help relieve a stuffy nose. Boil 150ml water, let it cool and dissolve 1/4th teaspoon salt in it to make your own nasal drops.

Furniture Stain Remover

Just before a snowfall, spread a little rock salt on steps, paths and driveways to prevent snow from sticking. It keeps ice from bonding to a concrete surface.

Ink Stain Remover


If the ink is still wet, pour salt on the stains and brush it off after few minutes. Repeat if necessary.

Itchy Skin

For itchy, dry or chopped skin, a salt bath works wonders. But be careful while getting in and out of the bathing tub as salt makes the tub slippery.

Oily Skin


For a facial refresher, fill a spray bottle with tepid water and 1 teaspoon salt. Then spray the solution on your face. Blot dry with a towel.

Rust Stain Remover


Rub a paste of salt and vinegar into the rust stain, leave it to stand for 30 minutes. Then wash as usual.

Slug Cleaner


Sprinkle salt on slugs to kill them. Stage an evening raid in the garden, salt celler in hand, sprinkle each slug once, then again in 5 minutes.

Sore Feet


Soak weary feet in basin of hot water to which you have added 2 tablespoon of plain salt.

Toothpaste Substitute


Salt can be substituted for a toothpaste because salt acts as a natural tooth care, treatment and healing for toothache.

Vase Cleaner


To remove water rings, rub them with salt. If the vase is narrow and you cant reach them, fill it with a strong salt water solution and shake until clean.
