I was just wondering if I could use water softener salt? Because I know we have a 80lb bag of it in our basement and it would be a lot cheaper if that would be possible. it doesnt have any info on the box it just says Sodium Clhoride which is salt of course but I just want to make sure it would be ok to use for tanning prep, and pickleing ect... Thanks people

In the last week this was posted go back and look.

Why save try to save 50 cents on salt. a bag of fine mixing salt is $3.00 so you will not be saving any money. If you cant afford salt, you cannot afford taxidermy.

Where could I buy a bag of salt for $3.00? Is it driveways salt or just regular table salt?

Just go down to the feed store (for livestock) and get yourself some fine white salt. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. It's the cheapest part of the industry.
