We all know that salt is good for seasoning and preserving food, but did you know that it has dozens of other prepper-approved usages? Some of the best reasons to keep salt in your bag include making salt water to treat itchy bug bites and to relieve a sore throat. You can also make toothpaste by mixing two parts baking soda to one part salt. Another prime reason to have some salt is that you can sprinkle it on a fire to control the flames and put some in a cast iron skillet to help clean it.
