Product Details

Henkel Somat Special Salt For Softening Dishwasher Water - B1641

Somat Salt is used to soften water dishwashers. Water from the tap often contains lime. In order to reduce the lime deposited on dishes in the dishwasher, some dishwashers have a water softening unit which withdraws the harmful lime from the water. Table salt is not suitable for water softening in dishwashers because it usually contains insoluble components which can affect the efficiency of the water softening unit.

All Miele dishwashers have a built-in water softener to optimize cleaning results. To function perfectly, this softening unit requires special salt. Miele recommends using Somat Salt.

Somat is made in Germany by Henkel and imported into the US by Miele.

Unit Weight: 0.8 lbs.
Shipping Weight: 1 lbs.

                Great product [...]. We recently purchased a meile dishwasher w/ built in water softener, and didn't know until it arrived that the salt for the softener can not be found in local stores. [...] Will order through Abt again once our supply runs out. Thanks!

                    First, I love my Miele dishwasher, absolutely the best I have ever owned and I believe it will be my last. It came with this odd water softener capability which I was not aware of nor had ever experienced before. At first I was not sure I could find the salt because it was European made, then I found your website, ordered 3 boxes [...]. I only used 1 and 1/4 to fill the softener and I hear it last for a year, so I am good to go for awhile and my dishes are so clean they squeak. Love it!

                        Comments about Miele Somat Special Salt For Softening Dishwasher Water:

                        Easy open and easy pour spout on box was a pleasant surprise. I seriously considered using regular house water softener salt in the dishwasher water softening system, but was concerned that impurities might harm the resin in the dishwasher water softening system. I was already aware that regular table salt (even the non-iodized version) has additional chemicals added to prevent clumping in high moisture conditions so I couldn't use that. Besides, the 100% pure salt crystals of this product are the correct size so the water softener resin recharge system in the dishwasher does not clog, nor does the salt dissolve too fast during the recharge time.

                        The best thing for me was that the box contents perfectly fills the salt reservoir so there is no waste or storage of an open box required.

                        Our water has approximately 35 grains/gallon (600 milligrams/liter) of Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) so we have the Bosch dishwasher adjusted to its maximum softening setting. So far, one box of Miele/Somat salt has lasted over a month. We operate the dishwasher about 4 - 5 times each week

                        My only disappointment is the high price for such a common product. After all, Sodium Chloride is one of the most common chemicals in the world. I have to assume the purity of the salt is the reason for the price being set where it is.
