Table salt water is a solution of the sodium chloride (NaCl) and water (H2O). The table salt is held together by a ionic bond which breaks apart when in water due to waters positive and negative dipole moments. The resulting ions of Na+ and Cl- allow electrons to move freely through the solution across the ions and to the nearest short circuit.
