Have you ever wondered why the salt shaker is your best ally in the kitchen, and not just for seasoning your dishes? We're talking about an affordable and easily available ingredient that can turn your sink into an oasis of cleanliness and freshness.
The incredible challenge of kitchen cleaning
The kitchen, like the bathroom, is one of the most difficult rooms to clean. Between the special product for the ceramic glass or cooktop, the degreaser for the wall tiles and the descaler for the dishwasher and sink, it seems that a different product is needed for each task. And let's not forget to mention the challenge of keeping delicate surfaces intact.
Every kitchen's nightmare lies in the pipes. No matter how good the cleaning product used, there comes a time when foul odors begin to emanate from the drain. This is usually due to the accumulation of grease, food residue, bacteria, fungus and stagnant water. All of these elements combine to create a perfect cocktail for rotting food and even blocking pipes.
Your plumber is none other than… the salt shaker!
Fortunately, you don't have to call a plumber or completely disassemble your pipes to remove these unwanted blockages or clean the inside of the pipes. All it takes is one simple step to get your pipes to stop smelling rotten. All you need are four things you probably already have in your home: water, salt, baking soda and white vinegar.
Salt, a champion of cleanliness
Using baking soda in combination with vinegar or lemon to clean almost any surface in the home is a classic. But what about salt? That's the secret our grandmothers forgot to tell us. Table salt is not only a great ally for seasoning our dishes, but it is also capable of loosening dirt when used for cleaning. Moreover, its salinity is harmful to bacteria and fungi, giving it a high disinfectant power.
To clean your drains with salt, pour a quarter cup of salt and a half cup of baking soda down the drain. Leave this mixture for about five minutes while it captures the dirt. Then pour in a cup of vinegar and wait half an hour. After that time, the mixture will have done its job and you can pour in some hot water to rinse out the remains and get the dirt out of the pipes.
A natural remedy for a spotless sink
What we offer is a natural, ecological and toxic-free remedy, which can be prepared in less than five minutes and does not require any special effort. In addition, this mixture is able to break down blockages caused by the accumulation of grease, dishwashing liquid and food waste that other industrial products can not solve.
Revolutionize your cleaning routine with salt
So the next time you find yourself faced with a smelly sink or clogged drain, remember this simple tip. Your salt shaker is more than just a seasoning. It's a powerful weapon against dirt and odors in your kitchen. So give it a chance to shine and make your kitchen life easier. After all, who would have thought that the secret to a consistently spotless kitchen could be found in your salt shaker?
