  3. Soothe pizza burn. Dissolve one teaspoon of Morton Salt in a glass of warm water and rinse your mouth with the solution frequently to speed healing after burning your tongue or the roof of your mouth.
  4. Repel fleas. Since salt repels fleas, wash doghouses with salt water to prevent fleas.
  5. Remove rust from household tools. Make a paste using two tablespoons Morton Salt and one tablespoon ReaLemon. Apply the paste to rust with a dry cloth and rub.
