We have been using salt for cleaning around the house for centuries thanks to its inexpensiveness, availability and the fact that it’s safe for use. But it’s also highly effective as well.
Unlike the commercially available cleaning supplies, salt is free of toxins and dangerous chemicals which jeopardize the health of our entire household.
We all have salt in our kitchen and here’s how you can use it:

If you have ants around the house salt can help you get rid of them. Just sprinkle some of it in your kitchen cabinets, the windows or doors and soon enough you won’t be seeing them again. Salt will also help you eliminate the moisture and humidity in your house.

Mix some salt with ACV and polish all your silverware, brass and copperware until shiny and that’s it. The dirt and stains will be gone as well.
