I have been buying non-iodized salt at the grocery stores and I buy it up as fast as they can stock it. is there a better place to buy itin large quanities? and what is the best way to dispose of it after salting a hide? (Ihave given it to some deer hunters to put out salt licks)

Livestock feed stores, you can buy 50 lb. sacks of non iodized salt, just make sure you get the fine and not coarse salt.


never thought of that

Joe , why are you disposing it after salting a hide ? I just keep using mine until theres none left and keep adding more as I get low . Besides deer slicks , you can use it in the winter to melt ice . Keep some in your car . Rick

that you should'nt reuse the salt, I thought in my own mind that if I let it dry back out that it would'nt hurt to reuse it. I'll half to check it out on the little orange button!

Salt is cheap. Then you have the bacteria problems. I don't know about you but that salt gets awfully nasty. I wouldn't want to walk through it OR keep it in my vehicle. Buy new!


Salt kills bacteria..

Salt acts through diffusion to suck the water out of the cape. It also sucks the water out of the microbes (bacteria), thus killing them. So, in my opinion, you can reuse the salt assuming it is not soaking wet and nasty.
