Darlene from Coupon Gossip, sent us this Funny Morton Salt Uses post.

Okay, so when I got my tester and coupon from Morton Salt, I spent some time on their site. if you’re interested in your own freebie tester, go here.

OMG!  What a hoot!  I’m not making fun of the salt part — just some of the ideas they are promoting to take salt from just table / food usage.  I know if companies can widen their application they can increase sales, but c’mon!  LOL.  Sometimes the go just a little to far into the deep end…  I got all these alternate uses straight from their site.

Ideas that amused me:

Eliminate Egg Spills

Eliminate Egg Spills Don’t fret over spilled eggs. Just pour Morton® Salt on top of the spill to cover the eggs. Then wipe the eggs up with a paper towel.


Uhmmm…why don’t I just use the paper towel?  I mean, what did the salt ever do to me to cause me to throw it in the egg?

Freshen the Air

Freshen the Air Clear the air with this homemade air freshener.
Just cut an orange in half, remove pulp, and fill the peel with Morton® Salt. It will provide a pleasant, aromatic scent anywhere in your home.

O-kaaayyy.  And what is gonna freshen the air as the orange peel decomposes?

Cut Cutting Board Odors

Cut Cutting Board Odors To help cut odors off of your wooden cutting board, simply pour a generous amount of Morton® Salt directly on the board. Rub lightly with a damp cloth. Wash in warm, sudsy water.

I’m pretty sure it’s washing the board with warm, soapy water is cutting the odor…not the salt.  Could be wrong here, but don’t think so.
AND MY FAVORITE ONE —

Patch Up Walls

Patch Up Walls To patch small nail holes and fine cracks in plaster or wallboard, mix 2 tablespoons Morton® Salt, 2 tablespoons cornstarch and about 4 to 5 teaspoons water to make a thick, pliable paste. Fill hole and let dry. Sand if necessary, then paint.

Oh, yeah, gonna do this one!  Not!  Why would I do then when I can get a can of spackle from hardware store for few bucks?  I can just see me asking my husband to do this one!  LOLOL!  He would tell me he’s running to the Home Depot.
