Growing Your Own Salt Crystals. Does it Work?

CC, Staff Writer

The things you will need are 


  • Table salt 
  • Water 
  • Clear container 
  • String 
  • Spoon for stirring 


Stir salt into boiling hot water until no more salt will dissolve, you’ll start to see crystals appear at the bottom of the container. Make sure the water is as close to boiling as possible. Then carefully pour the solution into your jar before doing so make sure you put a spoon in before you pour, it should prevent it from breaking. Suspend your string into the jar from the spoon laid across the top of the jar. Put your jar somewhere where it won’t be disturbed and wait for your crystals to grow.
