44 Uses For Giant Salt Crystals

When I whine about the salt they throw on my doorstep every morning I am not just whining about nothing (check the Vermont Winters tab).  I took a picture of three of the enormous salt crystals to prove to you that sometimes whining is appropriate. 

But as I can appreciate that my whining could be annoying I am going to turn this into a positive experience by creating a list of 44 possible uses for the giant salt crystals that I’ve been collecting in my vacuum cleaner bag:

  1. As a weapon to deter the salt guy from leaving more
  2. Crushed to make 20 salted margaritas from one crystal
  3. Dissolved in water to use for gargling
  4. On dry chicken
  5. As a doorstop
  6. To hold down the rug near the down that always gets moved around
