15 Ingenious DIY Salt Hacks

Salt is one of the most common condiments every home keeps on hand to flavor food, but there are hundreds of other uses for salt besides flavoring food.

Himalayan Sea Salt is one of the most complete salts in existence, it contains over 80 minerals, electrolytes and elements, aids in vascular health, supports healthy lungs, promotes stable PH, increases libido, prevents muscle cramps, lowers blood pressure and improves circulation just to name a few, making it one of the most beneficial salts of all salt types.

I am going to share 8 of my favorite DIY Salt Hacks and also share a video on page two that includes 7 more uses for salt you may not have thought of.

1. Use Salt For Instant Migraine Relief:

When you use salt to relieve migraines, make sure to use high quality salt such as Himalayan crystal salt. It’s the most complete salt in the world. It contains 84 minerals, electrolytes and elements – a fascinating number considering that there are only 118 elements known to science. This salt helps reduce the severity of migraine headaches, strengthens the immune system, increases energy levels, balances serotonin levels in the bloodstream, restores the body’s alkaline and electrolyte balance and much more.

Also, this method is very easy.  Just take a glass of lemon juice with a high concentration of Himalayan crystal salt and drink it. It works like magic! (Source)

2. Remove wine from carpet:

Argggh! Red wine spilled on a white carpet is the worst. But there’s hope. First, while the red wine is still wet, pour some white wine on it to dilute the color. Then clean the spot with a sponge and cold water. Sprinkle the area with salt and wait about 10 minutes. Now vacuum up the whole mess.

3. Remove watermarks from wood

Watermarks left from glasses or bottles on a wood table really stand out. Make them disappear by mixing 1 teaspoon salt with a few drops of water to form a paste. Gently rub the paste onto the ring with a soft cloth or sponge and work it over the spot until it’s gone. Restore the luster of your wood with furniture polish.

4. Keep oven spills from hardening

The next time food bubbles over in your oven, don’t give it a chance to bake on and cool. Toss some salt on the stuff while it is still liquid. When the oven cools, you’ll be able to wipe up the spill with a cloth. The same technique works for spills on the stovetop. The salt will remove odors too, and if you’d like to add a pleasant scent, mix a little cinnamon in with the salt.

5. Shell hard-boiled eggs with ease

Ever wonder whether there’s a secret to peeling hard-boiled eggs without breaking the shell into a million tiny pieces? There is, and now it’s out of the box! Add a teaspoon of salt to your water before placing the eggs in it to boil.

6. Keep salad crisp

Do you need to prepare leafy salad in advance of a dinner party? Lightly salt the salad immediately after you prepare it, and it will remain crisp for several hours.

7. Set the color in new towels

The first two or three times you wash new colored towels, add 1 cup salt to the wash. The salt will set the colors so your towels will remain bright much longer.

8. Stop weeds in their tracks

Those weeds that pop up in the cracks of your walkways can be tough to eradicate. But salt can do the job. Bring a solution of about 1 cup salt in 2 cups water to a boil. Pour directly on the weeds to kill them. Another equally effective method is to spread salt directly onto the weeds or unwanted grass that come up between patio bricks or blocks. Sprinkle with water or just wait until rain does the job for you.
