Salt content of coir

A friend gave me a couple bricks of compressed coir mulch (the chunky kind). MegaMulch I think it’s called. With coir I always worry about salt content, but information is so vague on any particular brand.

If there is a salt issue, will a few rinses take care of it? Is there a quick way to test salinity of it?

most nowadays are rinsed but it wouldnt hurt to do it again if your not sure.

usually if it is they say it on the package. if it doesnt chances are it wasnt rinsed.

Sounds like the brand sold at Costco? Should be washed, but don’t know what chunky grind might do. I had that brand in finer grind- never had an issue.


Yeah, she got it at Costco.

I’ll rinse it a couple times to be safe.
