Common Uses for Salt 

Salt is great for seasoning food when you are cooking, but it also has some other great uses too! Here’s a few for you to try.

  • Get rid of fleas from your dog kennel – wash down the walls and floor of your dog’s kennel with a salt water solution once a month to keep fleas at bay.
  • Remove baked on food from cooking trays – sprinkle the baked on food with salt, then add a few drops of water. Sit it aside until the salt lifts the baked on food and wash it with soapy water.
  • Clean your fridge – mix about a cup of salt in a bucket of warm water, let it dissolve and then wipe your fridge surfaces down with a sponge soaked in the salt solution.
  • Prevent mould growing on cheese – wrap your block of cheese in a paper towel soaked in salt water then put it in the fridge.
  • Stop colour running from your clothes in the washing machine – add a cup of salt to the wash if you have clothes or towels that are bright coloured to stop them running and staining other clothing items.
  • Remove water marks from wood – mix a teaspoon of salt with a little water to make a paste, then apply to the water mark on your coffee table or dining table by gently rubbing it in with a soft cloth or sponge until the mark disappears. Then apply some furniture polish.
  • Freshen your sponges and mops – soak these overnight in a solution of ¼ cup of salt to 1 litre of water.
  • Deodorise your shoes – sprinkle some salt inside your shoes to soak up moisture and odour.
  • Clean your fish tank – rub the inside of your fish tank with plain (non-iodised) salt to remove mineral deposits, then rinse very well before putting fish back in.
  • Soothe a bee sting – once you remove the sting, wet the area and apply salt.
  • Keep milk fresher for longer – add a pinch of salt to a litre of milk.
  • Speed up cooking time – if you are boiling food, add a pinch or two of salt to the water as it makes the water boil at a higher temperature and reduces cooking time.
  • Weed Killer – mix one part salt with two parts water, boil the solution, then pour directly onto the weeds.

If you have any more suggestions on what you can do with salt, we’d love to hear them!
