How To: Use aspirin in unusual ways

Use aspirin in unusual ways

Don't wait for your next headache to pull out that bottle of aspirin. Aspirin can be used as a topical home remedy for some medical problems, and as a handy fix to remove stain, keep your flowers fresh and even start a car battery.

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.

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

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.

Aspirin can lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes.
