Without salt, even the most nourishing food might seem tasteless. Every good cook knows that a pinch or two of salt added in cooking brings out the natural flavor of the dish. It also helps whipping cream and egg whites whip faster with more substantial peaks. It keeps eggs from cracking when they are boiled, and it can help prevent grease from splattering in a frying pan.
In your kitchen, salt removes stains from porcelain, enamel, copper and stainless steel. Throughout the household, salt is a reliable cleaning aid for clothes, carpets and furniture.
