13 Unexpected Uses for Salt

If you want to cut down on your sodium intake but don't want to get rid of all the salt in the kitchen, you're in luck. Salt has many unexpected uses, ranging from killing weeds to removing perspiration stains from garments to extending the shelf life of your new natural bristle broom.

Even if your home cooking doesn't need any additional flavoring, salt still comes in handy in the kitchen. Keep a container of salt near the stove to put out grease fires. Add a pinch of salt to improve the bitterness of coffee and to help your carton of milk stay fresh. You can never go wrong with a box of salt in your home.
