Place aspirin in battery
Put two aspirin in your car's battery if it's dead. The acetylsalicylic acid and the battery’s sulfuric acid may produce a charge good for one more turn of the engine.
Add to water
Add a crushed aspirin to water before adding fresh flowers to extend their life.
Wet your skin with water and rub an aspirin on a mosquito bite or bee sting to reduce inflammation.
Restore color-treated hair
Restore color-treated hair affected by a chlorinated pool by dissolving six to eight tablets of aspirin in a glass of warm water. Apply the solution to your hair and let it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing.
Remove perspiration stains from shirts by soaking the stained part in a solution made by crushing two aspirin in ½ cup of warm water.
