Can you use table salt for a dishwasher?
I mean using table salt as a makeshift substitute for granulated dishwasher salt just until I get the chance to buy the original product.

I wouldn't. Granulated salt is cheap and readily available at all supermarkets. Table salt may clog up the system. I wouldn't risk my machine. I love it too much.

If you mean substituting table salt for dish washing detergent, no.
Consider the prices. If using salt worked, no one would buy detergent, so there would be no detergent to buy.

What would be the point? Salt dissolved in water is not a cleaning agent. If it survives the rinse cycle there may be a thin deposit of NaCl on all the contents.

Table salt is not a dish washing detergent.
