Here's why she rubs Aspirin into Her Hair ! Did You Know it Could do all this ?


Aspirin is one of the many over-the-counter pain relievers we rely on on a regular basis. Most people have a bottle stored at home, just waiting for the aches and pains they are experiencing. But what you may not know is that the product contains chemicals that can do much more than provide relief from annoying headaches. Here are some of the non-medical ways you can make aspirin itself useful at home.

1. Dandruff fighter
Aspirin contains salicylic acid, a chemical capable of doing many things.  Crush two to three aspirin into your shampoo and massage the mixture into your scalp, then leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing it out.

2. Skin Saver
Not only can salicylic acid hydrate your skin, but it also helps remove oils and dead cells, making it an incredible acne and psoriasis opponent as it can open pores and reduce swelling, skin lesions, and redness, Everyday Health reports. Mix five ground grains with a quarter cup of water and, optionally, a teaspoon of honey. Applique it on your skin, let it for 10 min and then washing it off.

3. Sweat Stains Eraser
Sometimes sweat stains can have such a strong (read: bad) effect on your clothes that they become almost water-resistant, and difficult to wash off with regular wash cycles. But aspirin can help! Make a paste like the one on top and apply it to the stains on your clothes. Leave it on for a few minutes, then rinse and run a regular wash cycle. Instructables also suggests using this for blood stains, such as nosebleeds, and egg yolk spills.

4. Auto Mechanic
Surprisingly this one is when your car battery leaves you hanging in the middle of nowhere and you can't stand waiting for rescue, try this last resort: Instructables recommends dropping crushed aspirin tablets directly into the battery, a couple per cell, after they appear to be open. According to Reader's Digest, the salicylic acid will react with the sulfuric acid inside the battery and hopefully help it get enough boost for your car to tow itself to the station.

5. Pro Gardener
Everyday Health reports that salicylic acid, along with its ability to revitalize your plants just as it does your skin, is also able to prevent ethylene production and mold, two major causes of wilting in garden flowers and in cut flower arrangements. By adding a powdered tablet of aspirin to the water you pour over your flowers - or the water you put bouquets in - you'll help your plants live longer.
