Cleaning and Stain Removal
- Clean Coffee Pots Start your morning off fresh. Remove coffee stains from the inside of a glass coffee pot by adding 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.
- Clean Vases 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.

- 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. Return to your dinner party and launder as usual.
