    Think of sedimentation and decantation

    Okay, so If I was to pour the cup into a filter the water would go straight through but the sand would be left in the filter?

    Yes, what I don't think the decantation or sedimentation process uses filters, look it up :D!

    Pour it through a filter to get the sand. Dry the water to get the salt. Say goodbye o the water evaporated into the air. :D
