Can you believe MPMK’s newest  sponsor is salt?  I kind of feel like I’ve arrived now that I’ve garnered the attention of such an American household staple.  

Every time we run out of salt and I buy a new container at the store, I’m always amazed at how incredibly cheap it is.  Especially considering it’s many uses.  I use it to make my food more tasty (sea salt and olive oil is my absolute favorite dipping sauce for bread) and my winter sidewalks steady.  I even call upon it for the occasional art project with the kids (here and here).  

And did you know studies show that by adding salt-based water softener to your water, you can use half as much detergent at colder temps and still get cleaner clothes than with hard water?  I’m telling you, at something like 8 cents an ounce salt packs a lot of bang for your buck.  So thanks for the support salt – I’m a big fan of yours too.
