10-Ways-Repurpose-AlkaSeltzer
Over the past 5 years I have done quite a few posts on how to repurpose items in your stockpile.  Today’s is an update on the original inspiration for this series.  It came from reading a free magazine I had received and mentioned 5 alternative uses for Alka-Seltzer.

Since then I have found 5 additional uses for those AlkaSeltzer tablets.  So here are 10 ways to Repurpose your Alka Seltzer tablets.

 

  • Deep-Clean Vases – Fill vase with water and drop in 2 tablets. Soak for an hour and rinse.
  • Speed-Scrub the Toilet – Twice a week, drop 2 tablets into the bowl; wait 15 minutes and go once around with toilet brush. I could have really used this one because I am out of toilet bowl cleaner.
  • Make an all-purpose cleaner – Put 3 tablets into 8 oz warm water. When fizzing stops wipe down tubs, tiles and counters.
  • Safely unclog a drain – Drop 3 tablets into drain and run hot water (the hotter the better) for a few seconds. Let it sit for 15 minutes
  • Build Rockets – Take an empty film canister, fill it halfway with warm water and drop in 1/2 tablet. Put on the lid and place the canister lid down. Step back and watch it blast off.
  • Soothe Insect Bites - Drop two tablets in warm water, then soak a cotton ball in the solution. Place on the bite for 30 minutes for relief from the insect bites
  • Remove Burnt Food from Bakeware - Save your elbow grease and let Alka-Seltzer come to your rescue.  Just Drop 5 tablets into a sink full of hot water and let your cookware soak for an hour or so. The burnt food will come off with ease.
  • Deodorize your Refrigerator - Place a n Alka-Seltzer tablet in a cup of water and leave it in the refrigerator for a half hour. If there is still a smell in the refrigerator, then wash down the inside of the refrigerator with another Alka-Seltzer tablet in water.  This is great if you have run out of Baking Soda.
  • Make Food Stains Disappear on Storage Containers - Got spaghetti sauce stains on your plastic containers?  Just  fill your container with warm to hot water and depending on the size drop 1-2 tablets into the water. Let sit for 30 minutes and the stains will disappear.
  • Cure Bladder Infections - Getting the uncomfortable feeling of a bladder infection?  In addition to cranberry an AlkaSeltzer can help you out.  Just take two tablets in a glass of water as soon as you notice symptoms. Results are almost immediate.  **Don’t use if you are allergic to aspirin**
