Pour a splash of vinegar into the bowl of spring water and stir it in well with your index finger only.
Sprinkle some of the water over the particle, leaf and salt. Wrap the fabric over it all in a neat package and tie it securely with the string.

Pour the rest of the water on the ground where you have buried the package.
