8 Ketchup Hacks Your Mom Never Taught You

This delicious food condiment isn’t just for burgers and fries.

There are many other useful ways to use that sweet, tangy sauce that will save you time and money.

My family loves copper pots and pans because cooking food in them is great for your health! You can scrub these with kitchen soap all you like, but you’ll never get them sparkling clean. Squeeze ketchup into a cleaning cloth, add coarse salt, and scrub your copper pan. Let it sit for a few minutes before you wash it off. And viola!

Ketchup works wonders on silver as well! In a bowl of ketchup, place your silverware or silver jewelry and let it sit for a few minutes (not more than 10). Using an old toothbrush, scrub the ketchup on the silver item and rinse off with warm water.

If you ever dye your hair and it turns green, or it discolors over time, correct the color using ketchup. It’s a simply and easy solution! The acid in the ketchup will neutralize the chemical reaction that caused the mishap. Apply ketchup all over your hair and let it sit for half an hour, then rinse.

I highly recommend freezing ketchup packets and turning them into mini ice packs to ease pain. When ice melts, it turns to water, and warms up fast. When your frozen ketchup melts, it will remain cold and becomes malleable.
