For this heavy-duty scrub, all the ingredients you’ll need are 1/2 cup sea salt and 1/2 lemon. It’s that simple!
Dip the sliced lemon into the sea salt mix and scrub the surface to remove rust stains on enamel or porcelain sinks and tubs. But beware, do not use this for granite or marble as it will damage your pretty surfaces and leave you questioning everything you’ve ever known.
To clean the windows of your cars, or even your home you'll need 2 cups of water, half a cup white or cider vinegar 1/4 cup sea salt, and a few drops of orange essential oil for a citrusy fragrance.
Pour all ingredients into a spray bottle. Spray the solution on a paper towel or cloth, and wipe your windows clean. Don't do it on a hot sunny day because the mixture could dry too fast, causing the appearance of unaesthetic streaks across the see-through glass.
Cleaning brass doesn't have to be the chore you think it is. With some table salt and lemon juice, you're already halfway there! Now all you need is a tenacious will to clean and you're ready to get started.
Dampen a sponge using lemon juice or white vinegar with some salt sprinkled on top as you lightly rub the surface of non-lacquered cabinet pulls. Thoroughly rinse with water and dry with a clean, soft cloth immediately.
Cast Iron Skillets
Cast iron skillets are amazing for cooking as they retain their seasoning. So if you want to clean your cast iron pans without ruining the flavor they’ve acquired, just scrub them with some ordinary salt!
As much as you want things to be seasoned well, you wouldn’t want to go so far overboard that the material starts to become filthy. For example, if there are any bits of meat or other large chunks of food, you’re definitely going to want to get rid of those. However, if you have a strategically placed, thin layer of seasoning, you’re all set up for a great meal!
Whiten and Brighten Clothes
Are your clothes looking a bit dull? Adding a cup of salt to your next load of laundry will not only brighten your clothes, but they may come out cleaner too.
This is because salt is an alkali which makes it great at removing stains. This is also effective in keeping your clothes from wearing and having them last longer.
