Salt is cheap to buy and amazingly, it has many uses beyond adding flavor to your food. 

Check out some of the ideas below:salt has many household uses - it's cheap and chemical free, too!

1.  Sprinkle a little salt in your canvas shoes to help soak up the moisture and get rid of the nasty odor.

2.  Remove baked on food from your cooking pots and pans by soaking them in salt and a small amount of water for a few minutes prior to washing. 

3.  Mix a handful of salt into a gallon pail of warm water and use it to wash down your fridge. It’s both odor and chemical free so it’s a safe way to clean.

4.  Remove tea and coffee stains from your coffee mugs by either putting a little salt in water and letting it sit in the mug, or by simply using a cloth with salty water and rubbing the stains away.

5.  Prevent cheese from molding by wrapping it in a paper towel soaked in salt water and then putting it in the fridge.

6.  Add a pinch of salt to your milk or cream container and it will keep it fresh longer.

7.  Dissolve some salt in hot water and use it to dab the perspiration stains on your white shirts.  Continue to dab until the stain disappears.

8.  If you are preparing a salad and want to keep it crisp for a long time, lightly salt it immediately after preparing it.

9.  Get rid of weeds between your patio tiles by sprinkling salt directly on them.  You can also try dissolving salt in boiling water and pouring it on unwanted grass or weeds.  There’s no need to use chemicals when regular household salt will do the trick.

10.  Remove hard water mineral deposits from your fish tank by rubbing the inside of the tank with salt that is not iodized.  Be sure to rinse the tank really well before returning the fish to the tank.
