Salt may not seem as important as food and drinking water for your prepping stockpile, but this item has many survival and prepping uses around the house. (h/t to FoodStorageMoms.com)

Here are eight reasons why salt is a versatile and essential item in your kitchen, homestead or survival pantry.

It's an essential prepping and survival item

Salt is an essential item for prepping and survival. During a power outage or other emergency, you can use salt to purify water.

It can also be used to preserve food, so stock up on salt if you want to make pickles or other fermented foods after SHTF.

For cooking

Even if you don't experience a disaster, you will need salt for food prep and as a flavor enhancer. A dash of salt can go a long way in bringing out the flavor of food.

To add a little extra flavor to your meals in an emergency, sprinkle salt.

To boost your intake of minerals, you can also stock up on pink Himalayan salt.

While both table salt and pink Himalayan salt consist mostly of sodium chloride, the latter contains up to 84 other minerals and trace elements.

Pink Himalayan salt contains common minerals like calcium and potassium and lesser-known minerals like molybdenum and strontium.

One study analyzed the mineral contents of various types of salts, including pink Himalayan salt and regular table salt. The results showed that while table salt may contain more sodium, pink Himalayan salt has more calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium.

For food preservation

Salt is great for naturally preserving food, making it an ideal item for those who want to process food after a disaster. When added to the meat in the right proportions, salt can help prevent spoilage and keep meat fresh for a longer period.

Additionally, salt can be used to pickle vegetables. This method of preservation is effective and as a bonus, it also adds a delicious flavor to your veggies.

For non-toxic pest control

Salt is a non-toxic method for deterring pests.

If you have an ant problem at home, sprinkle some salt around doorways and windowsills to keep ants and other insects out of your house. (Related: More than just flavor: 20 Little-known uses for salt.)

For cleaning

Salt is also ideal for those who want to avoid toxic ingredients in many store-bought cleaning products.

For example, adding a bit of salt to a damp sponge can help remove stubborn stains from countertops and sinks.

You can also use salt to clean delicate items like fine china and crystal. Rinse well after cleaning.

For first aid

Salt also has some uses for first aid. If you get a cut or burn, applying a little salt to the affected area can help clean the wound and speed up healing.

Keep in mind that applying salt to a wound can be rather painful, so do not apply too much.

For soft water systems

If you prefer soft water, or someone at home needs it as part of sensitive skin treatment, having coarse or pelletized salt for your tank is important.

To clear ice

Salt is also useful if you need to clear some ice buildup on your sidewalk or driveway during winter.

Ideally, you can use a cheaper kind of salt for this so you don't waste table salt or Himalayan salt from your stockpile.

Additionally, the salt used to clear ice is coarser.

Stock up on Pink Himalayan Salt for long-term storage

Pink Himalayan salt is a healthier alternative to regular salt because it doesn't contain harmful additives often found in regular table salt.

Aside from being one of the purest and healthiest salts in the world, Pink Himalayan Salt is also an underrated preparedness item that you can use for long-term storage. You can use it to create an emergency rehydration fluid, a saline solution, to preserve food, and more.

Health Ranger Select Pink Himalayan Salt contains a full spectrum of electrolytes and trace minerals that are usually stripped away from regular table salt. It is mined from ancient sea salt deposits deep within the Himalayan Mountains using the traditional room and pillar mining method.

The mined salt crystals are thoroughly inspected and sorted to ensure quality and purity.

For another, Health Ranger Select Pink Himalayan Salt Fine Ground is not subjected to irradiation. The salt also contains no GMOs, gluten, anti-caking or bonding agents, additives, or processing aids.

It is also vegan, non-China, certified Kosher and lab-tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.

Use a dash of Pink Himalayan Salt while cooking to give any dish a savory flavor boost.
