Surprising Uses for Mustard

Who knew that mustard could be used for anything other than eating. Mustard has many little known alternative uses. Here are 12 of the most surprising uses for mustard.

1. Sore Throat Relief - mustard can be used as an ingredient of a natural sore throat relieving solution. Mix mustard with some lemon juice, a spoon of salt, honey and a half cup of hot water. Let the solution settle for about 10 minutes. Once done, gargle the solution until your throat clears. The solution’s effect should last for about a couple of days. If your sore throat returns, just make another batch of the gargling solution.

2. Bottle Deodorizer

3. Chest Decongestant

4. Cosmetic Mask

5. Skunk Smell Remover

6. Stink Bomb

7. Muscle-Relaxing Bath

8. Relief for Tired Feet -Give your feet some TLC by preparing a refreshing mustard-based “footwash.” Mix two spoons of mustard with hot water in a pan or basin. Soak your feet in the solution for about half an hour, which is enough time to drown your foot aches and pains. When you step out of the basin, you will have a pair of clean rejuvenated feet.

9. Backache-Treating Bath

10. Weed Growth Prevention

11. The Unwanted Scent of Men

12. Hair Conditioner
