A question about salt. Is the salt used for water softeners safe for human consumption? I buy 40# bags for just a few dollar on sale and usually have a couple hundred pounds stacked up next to the water softener . The question is for SHTF circumstances. Salt in the grocery store is cheap enough at present, and we really don’t use much in day to day living anyway. Come SHTF however and its usage would go up.
