is it okay to say:
"Additional salt might spoil your meal."? (for example in a recipe)
are additional things also useless or harmful in some cases? or we use some other word instead of "additional"?
My friend and I are going to the mountains tomorrow. But I have no boots. I ask him:"Do you have any additional boots?".
I mean another pair of boots which he does not need himself.
I want to know if additional has any meaning other than "extra" or ... .

"Spare" has 2-3 different meanings as an adjective which are all useful.
No need for more explaination; It is obvious to me. I just needed the word "spare". But you can explain it here in the thread if you like.
I wouldn't use additional in a recipe- additional would be adding salt at the table or outside the cooking for me.
Any idea for my previous post? Thank you.
