We all use aspirin and we use it all the time! Well yes, and, to be honest with you, I really think that every home in the world should have aspirin in their medicine cabinets. The real and ugly truth is that we usually drink this miraculous pill when we have a terrible headache, fever or when we notice the first symptoms of cold. Yes, this miraculous pill is very effective as a general pain reliever. But, did you know that it has other (effective) uses as well? Many people around the world also use it to treat their heart problems and to prevent blood clots from forming. Aspirin is extremely effective and useful due to its powerful ingredient – salicylic acid.
Ladies and gentlemen, in this article we’re going to talk about 9 non-medical uses of aspiring – you’ve probably never heard of. Just take a look at the article below and find out more about this.
- Rejuvenate your skin
Yes, you can use aspirin to rejuvenate your skin and it’s very simple. But, before we show you how to do that, you should know that aspirin contains salicylic acid, which works well like a clear-all for skin. Ladies and gentlemen, this is mostly because it helps to reduce swelling, redness, and acne by removing oil and dead skin cells that are clogging them. It’s very simple – you just have to make a mask by crushing up 5 aspirin tablets, combine them with a ¼ cup of water, and one teaspoon of honey. Then, make sure you leave the paste on your skin for at least 10 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water. You can do this daily, weekly, or monthly to fit your skin’s needs.
- Your flowers will last longer
Ladies, we all know that our plants and fresh cut flowers have a tendency to wilt away and they can start to look sad very quickly – which is a bad thing. The experts say that this is probably because they’re producing ethylene gas as they slowly decay. But, if you add a crushed aspirin to the water they’re in, your flowers will last much longer than not. So, why don’t you give it a try?
- Remove perspiration stains

- Restore hair color
According to the experts, swimming in a chlorinated pool can have a noticeable, and often unpleasing, effect on your hair coloring if you have light-colored hair.

Rub the solution thoroughly into your hair, and let it set for 10-15 minutes.
