    Storing bulk salt mix!

    I like buying the 200 gallon bulk packs of salt but it seems like my salt gets humid or lumpy faster than it should. My typical process is to open the 50g bag and then transfer to a huge zip lock. I realized that salt crystals are getting stuck in the zip strip and preventing a good seal. I'm sort of embarrassed that I waited until now to find a better solution. I have used 5g buckets before but the salt somehow got humid in there too. Anyways, I had a leftover commercial food storage container from the creative pico contest so I decided to see what would fit in there. Turns out a 50g bag of Instant Ocean or Reef Crystals fits perfectly into the 6 quart container! Here's a link to one on Amazon, but I just bought mine locally for much cheaper. Also Sam's Club has a 2 pack of these with lids for $14. 2018-02-04_03-38-41 by aaron M, on Flickr - Note I mixed up a bit of salt before dumping it into this container so a new bag would be slightly higher - though who opens a new bag without using some of it? Anyways this may or may not help anyone but having damp or lumpy salt sucks and never seems to dissolve right so I figured that I would share a cheap solution. Another benefit is that these containers are all food safe so you can trust them.
