salt dip questions

i believe i had ich. i treated with api quick cure for 5 days on 3rd day i raised temp to 88. all appeared better. today my male adult is glancing. hes usually more resistant to probs than the 2 females. is a salt dip a good idea? how is it done? can i use table salt? it will be a few days before i can get aquarium salt.

well, i went ahead and put him in a butter tub with tank water and a teaspoon of table salt for 15 minutes. now hes stopped glancing and being aggressive and has made up with his girlfriends. hopefully its not just temporary.
