Muriate of Potash is a old fashion name it is also known as; Potassium Chloride; Potassium Muriate; Potassium Monochloride.
soil with wetting agents in it is probably not going to work. Most agents work by eating through the waxy build up on the soil to allow the water to pass through easier. But they also can eat the waxy protective layer on roots, leaves and new stems, damaging plants. Wetting agents are used more in desert areas where water is more short supply.
maybe you could just grab a shovel, that's what i had to do in the end as i could never find just regular top soil.
