45 Things To Do With Salt

Salt is fantastic for seasoning food, but there are actually a number of other uses for salt. In fact, the folks over at Canadian Living have come up with 45 things to do with salt. Some of my favorites include:

  • If wine is spilled on a tablecloth or rug, blot up as much as possible and immediately cover with a generous amount of salt, then leave until dried. Vacuum up salt and rinse with cold water. The stain will (cross your fingers) be gone.
  • Wash dirty green vegetables such as spinach in a sink of mildly salted water to make them easier to clean.

For a few more great tips,

  • Pour salt into a vase to hold dried or artificial flowers in place.
  • Keep sliced potatoes, apples or pears from browning by placing them in a bowl of mildly salted cold water.
  • A greasy pan will wash easier if you rub a little salt on it first. Wipe with a paper towel and then wash pan in hot soapy water.
  • When adding flour to a recipe for thickening, stir flour with a pinch of salt to prevent lumps.

If these tips have you intrigued, be sure to check out author Sarah Kramer's entire salt list.
