5 Everyday Uses for Salt

Here at Terranea we harvest our own sea salt for use in our restaurant and spa, but there are many other everyday uses you might not be familiar with!

Clearly we love sea salt, as you can tell by our new sea salt conservatory here on the resort property. While we only use the salt in our restaurants, at The Spa, and for sale at sea beans, salt is known to be a jack of many trades.

Here are five everyday uses we bet you didn’t know you could use salt for:

Treat Wine Stains in Carpet

To treat a nasty wine stain on the carpet, dilute the stain with club soda. Then, cover the stain with salt and allow it to soak up as much as possible. Once it is dry, vacuum the salt up.

Treat Poison Ivy

Make a paste of salt and water and apply it to the affected area. You may also want to add a little salt to your bath to help ease the itching and promote healing.

Soothe a Sore Throat

A teaspoon of salt mixed with warm water and gargled can provide some instant and soothing sore throat relief. It can also help kill nasty germs.

Whiten and Brighten Your Socks
You can boil your socks in a large pot of water, baking soda, and salt to bring out their brightness and banish any stains.

Cleaning Dried-On Egg

Sprinkle salt on dishes right after breakfast; it makes them a whiz to clean when you have time.
