Table salt will work perfectly fine for that- but I would avoid it and stick to the quick cure. Mixing treatments can be tricky, and clown loaches are very sensitive (which is why you should and are using a half dose). They are NOT tolerant of salt either, and I think combining the two cures would irritate them more.
What are your water parameters? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate? Make sure you keep the parameters pristine, with nitrates under 15 preferably. Also, what is your pH?
What size tank are these loaches in, and do you intend to upgrade? I ask because clown loaches get very large (over a foot!), and need to be kept in groups. This means to properly house them you're looking at a tank over 200 gallons. My advice to most people with clown loaches is to return them for a smaller, more suitable loach.
