CREAM OF TARTAR (Potassii bitartras)

Categories: Medical Uses of Some Common Household Articles

Uses: It is useful in kidney
diseases to remove dropsy. In large doses of four teaspoonfuls it acts as

a watery purge. It is useful where the urine is thick and alkaline to make

it clear and normal. It is sometimes combined in equal parts with epsom

salts to move the bowels, especially when an action on the kidneys is also

necessary. It is given in teaspoonful doses before breakfast for prickly

heat; it is cooling to the blood and is one of the old home remedies.
