How long should the salt set on concrete before it is washed or brushed off? Does the salt finish actually leave a white stain in concrete? Please describe the look of salt finish? :rolleyes:

Salt should remain until the concrete has reached final set. Salt finishes only leave white spotting if the salt is not completely washed off the concrete, and even then it isn't permanent. A salt finish typically looks like a regular concrete finish with irregularly placed pock marks in the surface.
Concrete is good.
