A mechanical mixture is a heterogeneous mixture. If two or more things come together yet remain differentiated, they form a mechanical mixture, e.g., cereal and milk.
Something like salt water, on the other hand, would be considered a homogeneous mixture, not a heterogeneous mixture, because the Na and Cl ions of the salt separate and mix with the water.
The term “mechanical” for a mixture refers to the fact that a mechanical, or heterogeneous, mixture can be separated by mechanical means — for example, a filter, a centerfuge, etc.
