Why Are People Spreading Salt Around the House?

This Sunday was just perfect. My family has planned the whole thing to celebrate Mother’s day together.

It was unbelievable.

I was still under impressions this morning when I went out to take the newspaper and drink my morning smoothie outside.

The sun was shining, and everything was beautiful. My closest neighbor saluted me and asked me if I heard about the new trend around here.

She told me how people are spreading salt everywhere in their house because they learned it’s beneficial.

I love when my mornings are mysterious like this.

I did a little research about why people are doing this, and it came out that this could be useful.

Your home will turn into a clean and extraordinary place. On top of spreading around salt, I found a few more things you can do with it.

Let’s start:

Salt keeps ants at bay

Put some salt on the windowsills and other surfaces attacked by insects. The salt will lower the humidity at your home and keep bugs away

Salt as copper, silver, and brass polisher

Mix salt and vinegar and rub the objects until they get their shining effects back. The mixture is potent enough to dissolve dirt and stains.

Salt cleans car and house windows

Mix a gallon of warm water and few tablespoons of salt. The combination will help you clean your windows by dissolving the stains.

Using this mixture can clean your car windows, as well.

Cleans sink drains

The mixture of salt and hot water will dissolve everything that is “stuck” in the sink drain. Just pour the mixture into the sink drain and that’s it

Salt as a skin rejuvenator

Make a scrub for your skin combining olive oil and salt. Apply it on the entire body and wash the dirt away.

The mixture will eliminate the dead skin cells and rejuvenate the skin.

Make colors brighter

Soak up a cloth in concentrated salt water and rub the faded rugs and carpets with it.

The original color of the affected fiber rug will be back in no time.

Tooth remedies

Dissolve salt in warm water and swirl the liquid in your mouth. The salt reacts as mouthwash and will soothe the pain.

Salt whitens and maintains dental health

Salt and baking soda mixture will whiten your teeth.

Dries clothes in winter

If you are dying out clothes outside in the sun during winter, adding salt to the final wash prevents shrinking. Your clothes will be soft and stainless.



I will try these tricks with salt.
