Ahoy Salty Mates!

clean-lemon-saltBypass drab and nasty commercial cleaners and get salty! Scrub down sinks, tubs, showers, tile grout, and floors of the bathroom with the abrasive action of salt. Salt also helps remove food stains from pots, pans, and baking dishes.
Simply adding water to salt creates a stellar paste that scrubs down your oven and countertops. And if you don’t believe me, check out this lovely salt [and lemon] post by Green Buffalo Food Company (thanks for the photo!).

Home Salt Scrub

In a16 oz refillable container, mix together:

1⁄2 cup white vinegar

1⁄2 cup salt (1/2 cup each)

Stir with plastic stir stick.  Apply to surface and use our scrub brush and microsuede cloth to scrub and wipe surfaces clean.

Other Salty Tips and Tidbits

  • Soak cast iron pans in water with three tablespoons of salt to remove caked-on food without harming the seasoned finish.
  • Combine baking soda and salt to produce a whitening effect while scrubbing surfaces.
  • Gently use the salt paste to clean painted or paneled walls.
  • Blackened Copper Bottoms: Slice a lemon wedge in quarters, then dip wedges in Kosher salt.  Rub the copper bottom until blackened spots disappear, then keep going until the bottom sparkles.
  • To clean Copper and Brass Add white vinegar to 2 tablespoons of salt until you’ve created a paste. Adding flour will reduce abrasiveness. Apply with a rag and rub clean.
