Pink Himalayan salt can be mixed with any natural type of dish washing soap for best results. If you do not want to mix your own salt, you may find a store or a restaurant that sells Himalayan pink salt in powder form. It is good for cooking purposes, but I wouldn't recommend it for home use.
Pink Himalayan salt is available in powder form because it dissolves easily. One problem with Himalayan pink salt is that it can only dissolve so much without getting too thick. The other problem with it is that it will not taste right if left over. In general it is best if you mix it with plain unsalted water.
You can purchase it in various flavors. You will find it best to buy unsalted Himalayan salt because unsalted means no flavor. In addition Himalayan pink salt has an alkaline pH, therefore it does not separate like salt does. It also dissolves quickly, which helps reduce food waste and protect the environment.
