My wonderful blogger friends are joining together with a series of posts about Epsom Salt. We’re calling it the Epsom Salt Round-up!
What do you already know about magnesium sulfate?
Think its just for bath salts and in-grown toe nails – think again! This little sprinkle of natural goodness is as versatile as MacGyver.
…in the garden deter slugs – Sprinkle Epsom salt where they glide and say good bye!
…at home remove burnt food from pots and pans – Scrub pan with about 1/4 tablespoon of Epsom salt and some warm water and rinse. Viola!
…it’s the new aloe vera – use Epsom Salts on mosquito bites, bee stings, mild sunburn and poison ivy by soaking a cotton washcloth in a cold water Epsom salt solution (2 tablespoons per cup) for the affected area.
Epsom Salt can be found at your local grocery store, pharmacy and even your garden supply store. It has a wide array of uses, and although each may be manufactured differently they are all the same chemically.
Usually a two and a half pound container will run you $3 more or less.
