Steps

  1. Step 1

    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.

  2. Step 2

    Add to water

    Add a crushed aspirin to water before adding fresh flowers to extend their life.

  3. Step 3

    Wet skin

    Wet your skin with water and rub an aspirin on a mosquito bite or bee sting to reduce inflammation.

  4. Apply aspirin dissolved in water to acne to dry out skin and get rid of pimples.

  5. Step 4

    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.

  6. Step 5

    Remove stains

    Remove perspiration stains from shirts by soaking the stained part in a solution made by crushing two aspirin in ½ cup of warm water.

  7. Aspirin can lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
