1 Pour water on the mixture of salt and sand.

2 filter the salt water out of the sand with a filter paper.

3 evaporate the water out of the salt water, leaving only the salt.

the problem with this is when the salt desolves in the water the salt water also soaks into the sand so really when the sand dries out there is salt
