Salt has a number of very useful qualities in your kitchen besides making food taste more delicious. It’s an incredibly effective, natural and non toxic cleaning medium.
Since salt is essentially a tiny crystal with abrasive edges, it makes a very good and completely safe tool for cleaning food and other stuck on substances off kitchen surfaces. Adding a natural acid, like vinegar or lemon juice, to salt unleashes natural chemical processes that are effective for cleaning out drains, dissolving rust, deep cleaning wooden cooking board, or polishing stainless steel.
Salt’s versatility even allows it to make an effective cleaner for liquid damaged wooden furniture surfaces when it’s combined with olive or vegetable oil.You’ll also find that salt’s strong attraction for water molecules makes it very effective for drying things out or lifting out moist stains from rugs or fabrics.
