Well, I sincerely hope you have used it before...

Many people use it as...

  • food seasoning
  • clearing up icy roads (i.e. freezing point depression)

Some potentially weird or inventive people use it for:

  • sponge restoration (soak it in a quarter cup of salt per liter of water or so)
  • keeping your windows not frosty (make a salt water solution and rub your windows with a rag).
  • Put out small fires (salt has a high melting point, and can smother it).
  • Remove baked-on food from pan (soak in salt water, then rub it off)
