Cleaning & Stain Removal
You've always trusted Morton in your favorite recipes, but it can help you far beyond the dinner table. Explore below to see how salt can make your wine glasses glisten, your air aromatic, and even more.
Clean Coffee Pots
To remove coffee stains from the inside of a glass coffee pot, add 4 teaspoons Morton® Salt, 1 cup crushed ice and 1 tablespoon water. Gently swirl until clean, then rinse. Coffee pot should be at room temperature before cleaning. Do not use if pot is cracked or chipped.
Restore the bloom to a glass flower vase. Just mix 1/3 cup Morton® Salt and 2 tablespoons vinegar to form a paste. Apply to inside of vase. Let stand 20 minutes, scrub, and discard paste. Rinse vase and dry. For a large vase, double or triple the quantity of paste.
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.
Remove Bicycle Rust
Don't let bicycle rust slow you down. To clean the rust from bike handlebars and tire rims, make a paste using 6 tablespoons of Morton® Salt and 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Apply paste to rusted area with a dry cloth and rub. Rinse thoroughly and dry.
Here's a sharp idea: remove rust from household tools by adding Morton® Salt to 1 tablespoon lemon juice until it forms a paste. Apply the paste to rusted area with a dry cloth and rub away the rust.
Spring Clean Silk Flowers
Place silk flowers into a large bag and pour in one cup of Morton® Salt. Shake vigorously. Remove. And voilà! Your flowers will be clean.
Wipe Out Wine Stains
A fine wine is hard to appreciate when it stains your nicest shirt. Simply use Morton® Salt to help remove wine stains from cotton fabric. Immediately pour enough salt directly on the stain to soak up the liquid. Immerse the fabric for 1/2 hour in cold water. Launder as usual.
