What You Can Do With Alka-Seltzer

I was recently just exploring and reading many other food blogs and found out the many uses of Alka-Seltzer that I did not even know about.  Call me crazy but I have a thing for finding unusual uses for products around the house.  This amazed me so I am going to share it with you all!

  • Clean a toilet-drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush, and flush. The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous china.
  • Clean a vase-to remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet, fill with water and drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets.
  • Polish jewelry-drop two Alka-Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for two minutes.
  • Clean a thermos bottle-fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka-Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (or longer, if necessary).
  • Unclog a drain-clear the sink drain by dropping three Alka-Seltzer tablets down the drain followed by a cup of Heinz White Vinegar. Wait a few minutes, then run the hot water.
  • Remove burnt food from cookware. Fill your cookware with warm water, then dissolve five tablets and allow to sit for an hour or so.
  • Attract Fish. Fish dig on bubbles. Fill a tube jig with a piece of Alka-Seltzer and cast off.
  • Clean your coffeemaker.  Fill your percolator or the water chamber of your drip coffeemaker with water and plop in four Alka-Seltzer tablets. When the Alka-Seltzer has dissolved, put the coffeemaker through a brew cycle to clean the tubes. Rinse the chamber out two or three times, then run a brew cycle with plain water before making coffee.
  • Mosquito or other insect bite driving you nuts? To ease the itch, drop two Alka-Seltzer tablets in half a glass of water. Dip a cotton ball in the glass and apply it to the bite. Caution: Don’t do this if you are allergic to aspirin, which is a key ingredient in Alka-Seltzer.
  • Drinking Alka-Seltzer will help to ease the symptoms of nicotine withdrawal. Dissolve Alka-Seltzer in a glass of water and drink as usual. This will help you to get over the withdrawal from nicotine. Quitting smoking altogether, however, is the decision of the smoker. Never go cold turkey from smoking again.

And there you have it.  If you have more uses for Alka-Seltzer, please let me know!!!
