We all use salt in our food. These little white grains enhance the taste of our dishes. However, salt is not limited to just cooking. It can be used outside the kitchen as well, whether it be in the bathroom, in the garden, or even in your cosmetics. It is truly a miraculous ingredient and we cannot live without it. Here are some of the ways that you can use kitchen salt that will change your life.
Deodorize the refrigerator
With a mixture of salt and sparkling water, you can clean and deodorize the inside of your refrigerator. Go for this natural trick to prevent your food from getting infected with chemicals. Even if you take care, all food eventually goes off. In fact, as you store your food in the refrigerator over several months, even if it isn’t off, mold, fungus or bacteria can develop inside the fridge.
However, gone-off food is not the only thing responsible for bad odors generated by the refrigerator: when the temperature is badly regulated, when the ventilation works badly, or when the refrigerator is badly maintained, bad odors can easily set in. Until you sort out your fridge worries, this salt tip can help you get rid of bad smells.
Clean brass or copper
Prepare equal parts salt, flour, and vinegar. Mix them to obtain a paste with which you will rub the metal. After letting it sit for an hour, clean it with a soft cloth or brush and finish with a dry cloth. This trick is effective for kitchen utensils, decorative objects, and brass or copper jewelry.
Brass and copper have a reputation for killing bacteria and it is for this reason, among others, that they are found a lot in the kitchen these days. Now you won’t need to buy specific cleaning and maintenance products for your brass and copper items.
