- Prevent Rust – Because chalk is so absorbent, it can help rust from forming on any valuables. Keep a handful of chalk pieces inside your toolbox, and you’ll never get rusty wrenches.
- Get rid of grease stains – Before you toss it in the washing machine, rub some chalk on the stain, let it set for a few minutes, and your shirt will be as good as new.
- Freshen up your closet – To keep your closet from smelling like dirty clothes, just place a pack of chalk nearby. This will absorb all of the unwanted odors and keep your closet smelling nice and clean.
- Get rid of ants – It sounds weird, but ants hate to walk across a line of chalk. Instead of calling an exterminator, just draw a line of chalk on your floor and keep those ants from ever entering.
Bonus Hack – Make more chalk – Eventually, your piece of chalk will become too small to use. Don’t worry, there is still life in it. Crush it into small pieces and mix with water. Then, you can pour it into a mold and let your kids have fun with it.
