Few genius ways to prevent Salt from Clumping

Salt is one of the key ingredients in our kitchen. Mishandling or storing it in improper jars can make it damp and clumpy. Air is the main enemy that makes it lumpy. Even a slight change in the climate can result in moisture getting absorbed, thus obstructing its free flow. Therefore it’s essential that the salt containers should be closed properly after every use. 

Choosing the correct container is the easiest way to avoid clumping. Always go for an air-tight glass jar or salt box. It allows better airflow and keeps moisture out. Avoid using metal containers as they can rust. Avoid handling the container with wet hands.

Besides, you can try these simple tricks to prevent salt from caking:

    • One of the most simple and effective ways is to add a few Grains of Uncooked Rice to the salt shaker. Rice helps absorb moisture and keeps salt free-flowing. It’s best to use long-grain rice to prevent them from falling out of the shaker. If salt has stopped flowing freely, adding rice grains can help rescue it. 
    • Another way is to add Coffee Beans to salt. Salt does not pick the flavor of coffee beans and soak up any excess moisture. Avoid using coffee grinds as they don’t work.
    • You can also try using dried Kidney Beans or White Beans. Add them fearlessly as they do not alter the taste of the salt and absorb moisture efficiently.
    • Adding Cloves can also prevent moisture from getting absorbed. Though cloves might add some aroma, it doesn’t pose much challenge as the flavor goes with most of the dishes.
    • Adding an Unbroken Toothpick to the Salt Container can also help in absorbing moisture and keeping salt dry.
