S alt is one of the most widely used and oldest forms of seasoning. Besides being a flavoring and food preservative, it has a number of other uses around the home. See how it can be useful for you, not only when you cook.

Cool the white wine quickly. Sometimes guests surprise us and our white wine is not well chilled. Here, s alt can speed up the process. We simply put the wine in a bottle chiller, pour cold water, ice and add a generous amount of s alt.

Make a natural air freshener. Cut an orange in half and remove the inside. Put sea s alt in the resulting orange bowls and drip a few drops of your favorite essential oils.

Remove the smell from your hands. When we prepare dishes with highly aromatic spices or foods, it is difficult for our hands to deodorize. For example, if you've peeled garlic, wash your hands with soap and water, then rub them lightly with a small handful of s alt while they're still wet. After 1-2 minutes, rinse with clean water.

Make an exfoliant. You could make a homemade body or face scrub not only with granulated sugar, but also with sea or regular s alt. Combine a small amount of s alt with olive oil, coconut oil or another favorite, add essential oils of your choice and gently exfoliate your skin (the scrub is always applied to damp skin).

Remove coffee stains. When we wash the cups by hand and not in the dishwasher, sometimes we can miss some places and the fresh colors of the porcelain can be overshadowed by caffeine stains. To refresh your glasses, put a small amount of s alt on a dishwashing sponge and rub.

Use on mosquito bites. To relieve discomfort from bites, make a paste with s alt and water. Rub lightly on the affected area and if necessary leave it on for a few minutes. This will reduce the annoying itching.

Clean copper dishes. To restore their shine, combine s alt with flour and vinegar or lemon juice. Then put the resulting mixture on a cloth and rub the surface. Finally, rinse with clean water.

Fry without splattering. When you have heated the fat well, add a little s alt to it before putting the meat or fish in the pan. This will reduce the risk of unpleasant hot flashes.
