salt * genius

From Melissa Breyer’s 46 Smart Uses for Salt…  salt to dry clothes in winter, salt to treat bee-stings:

“How many ways can you use salt? According to the Salt Institute, about 14,000!  … I can’t think of another more versatile mineral.  Salt is the most common and readily available nonmetallic mineral in the world. In fact, the supply of salt is inexhaustible… There are a number of forms of salt produced for consumption (and by default, housekeeping!): unrefined salt (such as sea salt), refined salt (table salt), and iodized salt. Kosher salt is sodium chloride processed to have flat crystals. And in case you’re wondering, Epsom salt is an entirely different stuff: magnesium sulfate to be exact (which is a salt that I consider to be, essentially, miraculous).”
