RE: sodium chloride for palladium solution


I prefer to purchase and use pure sodium chloride. It's very cheap and
leaves no lingering doubt about other ingredients.

Subject: sodium chloride for palladium solution

I know it's been discussed here a zillion times, but...

whenever I go to get non-iodized salt (mortons or other) I always see 
another ingredient listed such as calcium silicate, sodium silicaluminate or

yellow prussia of soda...never just plain salt. I know these are anti-caking

agents, but can I still use this for my solution with no harm done? I have 
found sea salt with nothing else listed...or do I need to order NaCl from 
Bostick or equivalent...?

What to do...?
