    Chinasmack was asking that question today. Wonder if there is anyone still with stockpiles of salt in their flat?

    Well there I was, mixing in the hydrogen peroxide and ethanol to try and extract all the iodine from my salt and the darn thing exploded on me.

    Alot of the issue with salt in China was they were afraid of running out and hence why they bought alot. OK, maybe not 20 tonnes like some idiot did.

    Salt is used heavily in Chinese cooking (which really irritates me as it's too much).

    There was an article (I think in the SCMP) a few days ago that there is a new salt-buying panic in Lanzhou. Not sure what the reason was.
