Genius uses for salt
From beauty tips to household hacks, salt can be used for much more than seasoning food.
Remove wine stains from carpet
When it comes to red wine spills, it pays to act fast. First, while the stain is still wet, pour some white wine on it to dilute the colour of the stain. Then dab the spot with a sponge and cold water. Next, sprinkle the area with salt, wait about 10 minutes, and vacuum up the whole mess.
Make coffee taste less bitter
Move over, sugary lattes. If you drink your coffee unsweetened but prefer a less bitter brew, try tossing a pinch of salt into your mug. The seasoning contains sodium ions that neutralize or cancel out coffee’s bitter taste, research has found. Cooking Light recommends adding about 1/8 teaspoon of salt into the ground coffee beans before turning on your coffee maker.
