I've used popcorn salt for the pour for decades. Friend in NYC told me of it. Works great.

Throw a silica gel packet in with your salt and it will keep it nice and dry between shows!

If anyone wishes to perform the Long Salt Pour or any messy trick that leaves confetti, rice, or salt, on the floor. You should consider purchasing the Laflin Utility Drop Box. This is a very nice type of folding Waste Basket. Duane Laflin uses it at his dealers displays at magic conventions to work out of. He places Velcro along the top edge and makes holders for his secret props.

My use is to place a small waste basket liner in the box and use the plastic folder spine clips to hold the liner in place. The box has a bottom, but do to the feature of being able to fold the box flat, a liner is needed. The top opening is large enough so the performer can move during the salt, confetti, or rice pour. This also makes it an easy clean up to get packed and deal with the mess later.

It is a valuable asset, in my opinion, when wishing to present magic that no one else will do because of the mess involved.

I've always heard of using unflavored popcorn salt because its finer grain.
