Re: salt problem.

Table salt does often contain additives to ensure free flowing, as far as I
know most of them are soluble. The solubility of NaCl is fairly low:-
35.7%-at-0C,35.8-at-10,35.9-at-15,36-at-20,36.6-at-40,37.3-at-60,38.4-at-80&39.8-at-100 Actually the
ionic conductivity of potassium chloride is a good bit higher (it is used as
a salt substitute for those with certain medical problems and should be
available from health food stores but at what price I don't know. Going back
to the solubility of NaCl, unless you are using distilled or de-ionised
water you won't get these amounts tpo dissolve because there are other
soidium and chloride ions dissolved in tap water.
