Got salt? part 3

Part three in Tightwad’s series on handy uses for salt. (Apparently there are like, over 14,000 known non-edible uses for salt, btw.)

1. A dash of salt enhances the taste of tea, coffee and cocoa.
2. A salt water rinse helps to sooth a sore eye.
3. Adding a little salt to the water in a double boiler will make the food cook faster.
4. Clean you iron’s soul plate by rubbing some salt on the damp cloth on the ironing surface.
5. Dry salt sprinkled on your toothbrush makes a good tooth polisher.
6. Eliminate excess suds with a sprinkle of salt (memba that Brandy Bunch episode?).
7. Mildly salted water makes an effective mouthwash. Use it hot for a sore throat gargle.
8. To fill holes in plaster, use equal parts of salt and starch and just enough water to make the putty stiff.
9. Use a mixture of salt and lemon juice to clean piano keys.
10. Use salt for killing weeds in your lawn.

eh - don't use salt to kill weeds. It will harm surrounding plants and be difficult to grow plants/grass in that spot again.
