Remove sweat stains
Aspirin uses aren’t limited to pain and fever—they even extend to your wardrobe. Before you give up all hope of ever getting that sweat stain out of your good white dress shirt, try this: Crush two to three aspirins and mix the powder in 1/2 cup warm water. Aspirin contains salicylic acid, according to HuffPost, so it works similar to acetic acid found in vinegar which can also remove stains. Try soaking the stained part of the garment in the solution for two to three hours. These are the 12 times aspirin won’t work—and could be dangerous.
Restore hair color
Again, the salicylic acid is what makes aspirin great for this household use. Product buildup, swimming in a chlorinated pool, and time all lead to faded or brassy color—especially if you have light-colored hair. But you can usually return your hair to its former shade by dissolving six to eight aspirins in a glass of warm water. Rub the solution thoroughly into your hair, and let it set for 10-15 minutes. Kyle White, the lead colorist at the Oscar Blandi salon, in New York, says to try putting this mixture in your shampoo to combine two steps, according to Real Simple.
