Many of us have used Epsom salt as a bath soak or even to address occasional constipation, but these unassuming magnesium crystals can be used for so much more. As an added bonus, it is an inexpensive, green alternative to many of your harsh chemical products.
Tile And Grout Cleaner
If you are looking for a gentle abrasive to clean your tiles, and to really get into the corners—sprinkle some Epsom salt and scrub with a damp brush or cloth. It will also help whiten and brighten soiled tiles and grout.
Naturally Whiten Your Teeth
Dissolve a tablespoon of salt in 1 cup of water, and use as a mouth rinse once or twice a day after brushing your teeth. It will take time to get used to the taste, so use more water to start with. This is not only a non-abrasive way to whiten your teeth, but also promotes healthy gums.
Nourish Your Houseplants
Dissolve a few teaspoons of salt into your watering can. This will help nourish your plants and keep their leaves healthy and green. You can also sprinkle some crystals to the soil before planting roses or tomatoes, or surround the roots after planting.
These are just a few additional ways to use Epsom salt around the house. For more tips, head over to Lovie Acupuncture.
