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
|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
|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
|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
|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.
