Absolutely Awesome Aspirin! Car Battery, Calluses, Flowers, Rust and Pimples-Aspirin Cures It All

When I read all the below things that aspirin can do I was really, really shocked! I went out and bought a big bottle and am going to give some of these a shot. I love finding easy and simple remedies for everyday problems so I hope that this helps you too!

Bye,Bye Itchy Bug Bites-Got a mosquito or bug bite that just won’t stop itching? Moisten the affected area and rub an aspirin tablet over the bumps. Aspirin has anti-inflammatory agents that seep into the sore and reduces swelling and discomfort.

Love Your Flowers Longer- If you want your flowers to last longer just drop two tablets of aspirin in the water before adding your fresh cut flowers. The aspirin decreases the PH level of the water which is a breeding ground for bacteria and causes your flowers to wilt sooner. By adding the aspirin it makes your bouquet last longer!

Ciao Calluses!-Just mix 1 Tbs. of lemon juice with five crushed aspirin tablets and apply to your calluses and cover with a plastic bag for 10 minutes. Remove the bag and rinse with warm water. The combo of acids in the lemon juice and aspirin will exfoliate the rough layer of dead skin cells.

Rust Marks Be gone-If you hate the rust marks on your bathroom counter as much as I do just wet the area, smash an aspirin tablet and sprinkle it on the mark then wipe away after 10 minutes.

Poof Pimples To Another Galaxy-This is so easy for those nasty and rude pimples! Simply crush an aspirin tablet, add enough water to make a paste and leave on your blemish overnight. In the morning you should be on your way to clear skin!!!

Dead Car Battery??? Aspirin To The Rescue-Is your car battery dead?? Well make sure you always have aspirin in the car because all you need to do is drop two tablets into the battery. The acetylsalicylic acid in the aspirin will react with the battery’s sulfuric acid to allow a strong enough charge to start your car.

Who knew? Really cannot believe all the great things aspirin can do besides get rid of my headaches. Hurrah for aspirin!

If aspirin were introduced today, it wouldn't pass FDA approval. Crazy huh?

Hi Heidi, great tips!
Thanks for commenting on my blog, dont know why you need their stylists though, you are doing just great all on your own. You are like my wife, you look better on your worst day, than half of the celebs on their best days. :)
Have a great stylist free day!
Now that is interesting...just imagine what it can do to your stomach!! :0)
I'll have to try the car battery trick. I had a dead battery last week when leaving work. If only I had my aspirin bottle! :)

Wow! I didn't know aspirin is so useful! And since it's a drug, I normally avoid anything to do with drugs!

But I guess if it can help start my car and I don't need to consume it, why not? : )
Dori said...
I knew about the flowers, but I had no idea about all of the other uses. Thanks for sharing this :)
Truly amazing. As foongpc said, as long as it's not going into my body it seems incredibly useful. Just like cola LOL!

If putting aspirin paste on your face will make zits go away - I wonder what it would do if you put it on a spot on your face that didn't have any zits. Give you...superface?
Rebecca said...
Terrific tips! I love stuff like this. Thanks so much!

Whoa never knew aspirin was that much of a miracle pill. I had heard some of these but the car battery tip really surprised me as well as the zit remedy.

Heidi, it's probably no mystery that my doctor recommended I start taking aspirin regularly, since heart disease runs on my father's side of the family. Thanks for the reminder with this timely article! ;-)

Not just for headaches anymore. Wow, good stuff, as usual, Heidi. Plus you managed to used the phrase: Ciao Calluses! Amazing.

betchai said...

Aspirin to the rescue... nice article ms. heidi!
eastcoastlife said...
That is a useful pill to have at home. I don't like to take aspirin no matter how bad my headaches are. Now I can use it for other purposes.

Fantastic post. I knew aspirin was good in case of heart problems, and, of course, headaches and body aches. But it will give new life to my car battery? Fantastic. Good to know in an emergency.

Great post.

I take an aspirin every day, I never actually belived it does anything but always figured it couldn't hurt. Family doc told me it reduces inflammation and blood pressure.
