Do It
photo of salt, water and jar grab
  • Epsom salt
  • a tablespoon
  • a cup of water
  • a paper circle
  • a jar lid
  1. Cut out a paper circle the same size as the jar lid. Put the circle in the lid.
  2. Measure 4 big tablespoons of Epsom salt. Don't worry if you add too much - the more, the better.
  3. Dissolve all 4 tablespoons in the water and stir the mixture thoroughly.
  4. Pour the water mixture into the jar lid. Stick the lid in a place where it won't be disturbed. It will take a few days, but let the water evaporate and see what happens!
