  4. Picking dropped eggs

    If you drop an egg on the kitchen floor, sprinkle salt on the mess and leave it there for 20 minutes. You’ll be able to wipe it right up.

  5. Clean up oven spills quickly

    If a pie or casserole bubbles over in the oven, pour a handful of salt on top of the spill. It won’t smoke, smell and, most importantly, will bake into a crust that makes the mess easier to clean once it’s cooled.

  6. Clean brown spots off your iron

    Simply sprinkle salt on a sheet of waxed paper, slide the iron across it and rub lightly with silver polish. Your iron will look like brand-new in no time.

  7. Remove stains from your coffee pot

    Fill it with 1/4 cup of table salt and a dozen ice cubes. Swish the mixture around, let it sit for half an hour, fill it with cold water and rinse. Your coffee pot will look brand new.

  8. Keep your windshield frost-free

    Dip a sponge into salt water and rub it on windows, and they won’t frost up even when the mercury drops below zero.

  9. Shell nuts more easily

    Soak pecans and walnuts in salt water for a few hours before shelling them. Doing so will make it easier to remove the meat.

  10. Drip-proof candles

    If you soak new candles in a strong salt solution for a few hours, then dry them well, they won’t drip when you burn them.
