How to Use Aspirin in Unusual Ways

Aspirin is not only used for health benefits, but can be used for all kinds of unusual remedies.

You will need

  • A dead battery
  • Fresh flowers
  • A mosquito bite or bee sting
  • Color-treated hair
  • Sweat stains
  • A multivitamin (optional)
  • Salt (optional)
  • Baking soda (optional)

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.

Step 2 Add to water Add a crushed aspirin to water before adding fresh flowers to extend their life.

Step 3 Wet skin Wet your skin with water and rub an aspirin on a mosquito bite or bee sting to reduce inflammation.

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.

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.
