A water bottle of salt water would be conductive. if it were to set there for a year or so will it still be conductive. assuming you shake it around a bit to remix the settled salt

I'd like to learn how to make a Salt Lamp. I've seen Himalayan Salt Lamps for sale, however himalayan salt contains uranium! So I'd like to know how to make one myself, perhaps from sea salt or rock salt or something. If anyone knows how to do this, please share your knowledge!

I'm experimenting with lenses and want a big one(to big for the kiln) so i decided to try salt. I've grown small crystals in a pot almost 1 inch wide but don't have a clue how to scale it up.

Http://andthatsthewayitis.net/2011/05/17/salt-does-not-melt-ice/ thought about running a chainsaw to remove ice from roof gutters. rethought that. sodium chloride? corrode metal gutter and hurt plants. mag sulfate? have it on hand, but above link indicates it wont work. would it work if baked to drive off h2o? stuf comes hydrated. calcium chloride? directly on metal?

Chemistry Questions: What do you get from combining salt, white vinegar and cupric oxide? And what can be done with it? Answered
In my enameling work, I sometimes use a mild homemade pickling solution to remove firescale (cupric oxide) from copper. The pickle is a saturated solution of white vinegar and kosher salt, kept hot in a Crock Pot. After heating the copper pieces in a kiln, a layer of cupric oxide forms on the surface, which is then dissolved in the salt/vinegar solution. After a while, the solution turns a lovely blue color from the dissolved copper. If I forget to put the lid on the pot, eventually the solution evaporates, leaving pretty blue crystals that look a bit like copper sulfate. So, what have I got here? I don't want to just dump it due to the copper content. I'd like to figure out something to do with it, but first I need to know what it is. I'm thinking it might make a good electroplating solution, but that's just a guess.

Well the slow lady at my local KFC took half an hour to cook two big crunch sandwiches (spicy mayo of course), and two small popcorn chickens. This was not even combos with fries and drinks, just sandwiches and popcorn chicken. To spite the dumb b*tch (I mean really she took WAY longer than she needed to, and the only cook in the back left in the middle of cooking something to go have a smoke out back). I ended up stuffing my pocket full of salt (apparently they keep inventory of their salt packets, I know this because my sister used to work at a kfc). I took roughly 350 packets of salt, enough to take a big dent out of their supply. Needless to say, my mom was even pissed, her popcorn chicken was soggy when she got it, yet my gf's was made fresh and was still hot, what's going on there??? Regardless, if anyone lives in Ontario, I reccomend you steer your business away from the Port Elgin KFC, it's private ran (they bought the franchise and it's not ENTIRELY ran by kfc), and thusly, it's ran by some rather piss poor cooks and the cooking quality is not consistent nor is it up to standard. I hope someone thanks me for this.

SALT? What is the easiest way to get water out of Epson salt solution without contaminating or changing the salt? Thanks

What is the fastest most energy efficient way to evaporate seawater on a small scale and collect the salt that reminds?
I tried standard sun evaporation in trays (1 gallon) and it takes far too long (not to mention all the debris that collects in the water during the evaporation process). Heating it over the stove uses too much energy. I am thinking a solar fan / heat combination. Your thoughts? (Note: The goal is to collect the sea salt.)

I was making some sodium chlorate using https://www.instructables.com/id/EGXGY5PF23Z375E/, but instead of using some 9v, i put a bridge rectifier on to my AC power (i live in south Africa so 240v) and the I put what i hope was DC into the salt water, which began to glow and made a noise. Why was it glowing and is there any danger to let it run for 2 hours?

Http://articles.latimes.com/2009/feb/23/business/fi-magicwater23I think someone with more time than me should see how to do this most efficiently and see if it work!The article:Sounds like the old "Saturday Night Live" gag for Shimmer, the faux floor polish plugged by Gilda Radner. But the elixir is real. It has been approved by U.S regulators. And it's starting to replace the toxic chemicals Americans use at home and on the job.The stuff is a simple mixture of table salt and tap water whose ions have been scrambled with an electric current. Researchers have dubbed it electrolyzed water -- hardly as catchy as Mr. Clean. But at the Sheraton Delfina in Santa Monica, some hotel workers are calling it el liquido milagroso -- the miracle liquid.That's as good a name as any for a substance that scientists say is powerful enough to kill anthrax spores without harming people or the environment.Used as a sanitizer for decades in Russia and Japan, it's slowly winning acceptance in the United States. A New York poultry processor uses it to kill salmonella on chicken carcasses. Minnesota grocery clerks spray sticky conveyors in the checkout lanes. Michigan jailers mop with electrolyzed water to keep potentially lethal cleaners out of the hands of inmates.In Santa Monica, the once-skeptical Sheraton housekeeping staff has ditched skin-chapping bleach and pungent ammonia for spray bottles filled with electrolyzed water to clean toilets and sinks."I didn't believe in it at first because it didn't have foam or any scent," said housekeeper Flor Corona. "But I can tell you it works. My rooms are clean."Management likes it too. The mixture costs less than a penny a gallon. It cuts down on employee injuries from chemicals. It reduces shipping costs and waste because hotel staffers prepare the elixir on site. And it's helping the Sheraton Delfina tout its environmental credentials to guests.The hotel's kitchen staff recently began disinfecting produce with electrolyzed water. They say the lettuce lasts longer. They're hoping to replace detergent in the dishwasher. Management figures the payback time for the $10,000 electrolysis machine will be less than a year."It's green. It saves money. And it's the right thing to do," said Glenn Epstein, executive assistant at the Sheraton Delfina. "It's almost like fantasy."

I was looking for a way to make rust (ironoxide) and found that bleach coul be used as an oxidizer; however, I would not know when it was finished breaking down. With some research I found that NaClO + H2O2 -> O2 + NaCl + H2O. I think I can use this to either: use the NaClO and make the ironoxide, then add the H202 to break do the residual NaClO (extra H2O2 can be evaporated with the H2O), or used the reaction to speed up the ironoxide making with a bit of extra H2O2 to insure all the NaClO is used and the evaporate off the rest. (which would be better? would be my first question, but not the most pressing one) My question is how can I sepperate the Iron oxide from the NaCl (salt), since both are water soluble (sp)? A filter will seperate out larger pieces of ironoxide, but there will still be a fair amount that passes through the filter with the salt and I would like to minimize my loses as much as possible.

I don't want to delve deeply into soapmaking. I just thought it would be easy to add sugar or salt (for that scrubby feeling) and old body spray (for scent) to my generic refill hand soap. But I've been playing around and I just wind up with completely unsuitable textures. Basically it gets really runny and no matter how much sugar/salt I put in there, it doesn't flow through the dispenser so it doesn't get used. Thanks.

I have been messing with electrochemistry lately, and had saturated some water with NaCl (table salt). I then placed two carbon electrodes into the solution and ran a current through it. To my surprise, the carbon dissolved and a dark brown powder formed in the solution, with gas bubbles rising from both electrodes until they were gone. Anybody know what is happening??

Hey man, you should point out that Kosher Salt is less salty than table salt. It's therefore easier to approximate the amount of salt needed. I always screw it up if I use table salt, but Kosher salt is much more forgiving once you get a handle on it.

I want to cook artichokes (whole, fresh) on a salt block. Any tips for this? Should I precook the arti some?
A full sized artichoke takes a long time to steam or boil. I want to cook some on a Salt Block but don't know if I should pre-cook them a bit so they don't have to stay on the salt block all day. I am sure I can cook them on the salt block but also wonder if they will continue to be tough if not par cooked. I'll report back with photos when I am done and figure it out.
