Cleaning with Salt

January 27, 2011

Did you know that salt’s granular texture makes it perfectly suited for scouring?  Table salt, sea salt, and kosher salt can all be used, but table salt is the cheapest choice.

Use salt to clean:

Artificial flowers.  Place the fake blooms inside a paper bag and pour in salt. Close the bag and shake vigorously. The salt will dislodge accumulated dust and dirt.

Glassware.  Salt won’t scratch the way a scouring pad can. To get out stubborn stains, add some salt for extra abrasion and scrub.

Greasy pots and pans.  Sprinkle salt on cookware to absorb excess grease. Dump out the salt before washing as usual.  Do not use on nonstick cookware.

Spills in the oven.  Pour salt on the spills to soak them up. When the oven is cool, wipe with a damp sponge.

Stained teacups and coffee mugs.  Sprinkle salt on the outside of a lemon peel and rub the affected area until clean.

Wooden counters and tables.  Cover grease splatters with salt to absorb as much as possible. Wait an hour, then brush away the salt.
