The granular texture of salt makes it suited for scouring. Table salt, sea salt, and kosher salt can all be used, but table salt is the cheapest choice of natural cleaning solutions in your home.
Use It to Clean Your…
Artificial flowers: Place the fake blooms inside a paper bag and pour in salt. Close the bag and shake vigorously. The salt will dislodge accumulated dust and dirt.
Glassware: To get out stubborn stains, add some salt for extra abrasion and scrub. Salt won’t scratch the way a scouring pad can.
Greasy pots and pans: Sprinkle salt on your pot or pan to absorb excess grease. Dump out the salt before washing as usual. (I do not recommend for nonstick cookware.)
Spills in the oven: When that casserole bubbles over as you take it out of the oven, pour salt on the spill to soak it up. When the oven is cool, wipe with a damp sponge.
Stained tea mugs: Sprinkle salt on the outside of a lemon peel; rub the affected area till clean.
Wooden counters and tables: Cover grease splatters with salt to absorb as much as possible. Wait an hour, then brush away the salt.
