Again, I've never used it, so I can't say from experience. But salt feels too... caustic for me. If I were to use water I would use plain rain water or creek/river water (which is probably even more "toxic!" lol).
Actually, I would feel something is cleansed if I held it in the creek by my house (I do this often and really like the energy). 

I'm not very Wiccish, so the "charging tools with my own energy" thing isn't something I do. Objects that I want to cleanse, I just want them to not feel like they have grimy energy. I don't want them to lose their identity and feel like me or force a certain energy on them, if that makes sense (I did charge a ring quite a long time ago, but I don't think the actual charge was what made it effective, but just my mental state about about it).

I'm not really Wiccan either (still not sure what I am - some Wiccan tendencies, but definitely not Wiccan).  I do like tools for spells and energy to be charged with my energy or energy from the earth though.  I'm not completely sure why though, I just like the way it feels. But in reality, tools are not what create energy and magic IMO.

Also, did your X know it was your athame when he used it to open the box? That's not very nice if he did! I'm sorry to hear it really screwed it up for you!
He only knew it was some "pagan thing" on my altar, but he should have known not to touch it.  It's ok though, I wasn't in love with it and didn't feel terribly connected to it to begin with.  My son will love it, so maybe it was meant for him?
