This versatile household staple has an array of surprising uses!
Most of us know that adding Epsom salts to your bath helps relax muscles and relieve stress but here are a few lesser-known reasons why you should always keep Epsom salt in your home:
- House Cleaner – Mix Epsom salt with dish soap to scrub off stains on tile and countertops.
- Splinter Hint – Dissolve a cup of Epsom salt in a tub of hot water and soak the affected area for a few minutes.
- Deter Critters – Spread a light dusting around garbage cans to deter pesky critters like raccoons as they hate the taste.
- Help Your Garden Grow – Sprinkle a tablespoon of Epsom salt before you plant your veggies and flowers as it acts as a magnesium fertilizer.
These are just a few of the many ways you can use this inexpensive, natural product that can be found at any drugstore. This mineral mixture has many more uses so make sure you stock up because once you’ve completed all that cleaning and gardening, you’ll want a long soak in the bath!
