Keep your Shoes Fresh
Think about your favorite pair of shoes. They may be comfortable, you may love how they look. You wear them whenever you go out, but soon enough they start smelling a little funky. So why not give them a reboot, which your feet and nose will thank you for? Try this tip before spending your hard-earned cash on pricey deodorizers.
Salt is great at soaking up any odors and moisture. All you have to do is make a little pouch full of salt, leave it in your shoes at night. By the next morning, your shoes should smell much better!
Using salt as a treatment for dandruff might sound very unconventional, but hear us out! If you've tried out all those expensive lotions and shampoos with little success, you might just need an abrasive to scrub off all those pesky flakes that are still in your hair.
Mix sea or coarse salt with some olive oil and scrub your hair before washing with shampoo.
DIY Dishwasher Soap
With dishwashing tablets being so expensive, why not make your own? Just pour out some salt, baking soda, and a little dishwashing soap in an ice cube tray to set.
The dishwashing soap will work as glue and help bind all the ingredients together. Once the mixture has set you can pop them out and drop them in your dishwasher or even in your sink whenever you wash your dishes again. It'll work like a charm without breaking your budget!
Freshen Your Dairy
For centuries salt has been used as a preservative to help store food for longer. Adding a pinch to your milk and yogurt will help them stay fresher for longer and won't spoil their taste.
You can even do this with cheese by dipping napkins in salty water and swaddling your cheese in them. It will keep the mold at bay and can do wonders for your fridge.
Get Rid of Snails
If left unattended, snails and slugs can wreak havoc on your precious greenery so it's best to deal with them before it's too late!
Keep them away from your plants by scattering salt around the edges to stave off any unwanted pests.
