Letter Re: Salt and Other Key Items to Store for Barte

I have a tip for my fellow SurvivalBlog readers on salt. Most anyone with a well will probably have a water softener, and as such will know that salt comes in large 20-50 pound bags. We get it for our softener for about $5.00 per 50 lb. bag. Be sure to check the label, and make sure that it is pure sodium chloride, (table salt). Others are Potassium Chloride, the “other” table salt. Watch out for the ones that have additives, of course. Being “rock salt” it’s got large crystals, but you can easily crush or grind it. It’s available at hardware stores and places like Ace, TruValue, Home Depot, Lowes, Agway, et cetera. Regards, – Rick D.
