14 Handy Uses For Salt

Hi peeps!

Thank you to each of you who view the blog every day. I am so grateful and appreciate it loads! If you have any suggestions or would like one of your own recipe's featured, please contact me on shantsjlucas@gmail.com and we can set it up! You can also email me with any comments or suggestions too, your opinion is valued. Well today I have another article to share with you; some funky uses for salt! Tracy Drozd posted these uses on her wall and I thought they were pretty awesome:

1. If you drop a whole egg on
the floor, pour salt all over the
egg, let it sit for awhile, then
use dustpan, the egg will come
right up, without all that mess.

2. Soak stained hankies in salt
water before washing.

3. Sprinkle salt on your shelves
to keep ants away.

4. Soak fish in salt water
before descaling; the scales
will come off easier.

5. Put a few grains of rice in
your saltshaker for easier
pouring.

6. Add salt to green salads to
prevent wilting.

7. Test the freshness of eggs
in a cup of salt water; fresh
eggs sink;bad ones float.

8. Add a little salt to your
boiling water when cooking
eggs; a cracked egg will stay in
its shell this way.

9. A tiny pinch of salt with egg
whites makes them beat up
fluffier.

10. Soak wrinkled apples in a
mildly salted water solution to
perk them up.

11. Rub salt on your pancake
griddle and your flapjacks
won't stick.

12. Soak toothbrushes in salt
water before you first use
them; they will last longer.

13. Use salt to clean your
discolored coffee pot.

14. Mix salt with turpentine to
whiten you bathtub and toilet
bowl.

Pretty nifty right?! Thanks to Tracy Drozd for sharing this awesome bit of info.

Much love, peeps
