ot just for the dinner table, salt’s granular texture makes it an effective all natural scourer. Great at ridding rust, mix it with lemon juice to clean copper and combine with vinegar to brighten brass.

  • Clean coffee percolators and pots by filling with water and adding two to four tablespoons of salt. Bring to boil. Let the water sit till cool. Pour out and rinse well

  • Remove rust from tinware by rubbing the affected area with a peeled potato dipped in salt. Another rust removal method is to make a paste of lemon juice and salt; apply to the rusty object and rub with a soft, dry cloth

  • Salt lends a hand to clean up your carpets- To loosen set-in mud or dirt and eliminate moth or flea nits from a carpet, sprinkle on some salt and work it into the carpet with a stiff broom; then vacuum up. Remove grease spots from a rug with a mixture of one part salt to four parts of rubbing alcohol; rub hard in the same direction as the nap of the carpet, then rinse with water. Immediately blot up any red wine spills on your carpet and sprinkle the area with salt; let sit for 15 minutes (the salt should absorb any remaining wine in the carpet turning pink as a result); then clean the entire area with a mixture of one-third cup white vinegar and two-third cup of water

  • To get rid of stubborn stains on glassware, scrub with salt for extra abrasion

  • Pour salt on oven spills to soak them up. When the oven cools down, wipe clean with a damp sponge

  • Treat stained teacups and coffee mugs with a lime wedge, dipped in salt. Rub the affected area untill clean

  • Cover grease splatters on wooden surfaces with salt to absorb as much as possible. Wait an hour, then brush away the salt

  • When a hot dish or water has marred the surface of a wooden table, get rid of the mark with a thin paste made of salad oil and salt. Just apply the paste, then buff slightly as you wipe it off with a soft cloth

  • Stop new candles from dripping by first soaking them in a strong solution of half a cup of water and half a cup of salt for several hours. Let the candles dry thoroughly, then burn them as usual
