Should the salt be washed off prior to giving to the finches?

I give it a quick once-over with a rough bit of paper to detach anything that might be stuck to it. Don't know if it's necessary, but it makes me feel better.

If its fresh I don't bother, little bit of extra salt doesnt hurt them

I give it a swish in water if it is wet when collected. If dry I assume excess salt has blown away with the wind. Almost time to go collecting again.
