Exactly. Think of it as the salt would burn the evil if it crossed and tried to enter your home. Rain will not wash away the effect but it is not permanent. Let these evil people back in your house and you have to redo the process.

Then H's uncle was a Roman Catholic priest and blessed everyone's house when they first moved. Between that, smudging and everything else, we were good. My dog loved helping me do this, it was like he was chasing evil out, too. Maybe he was.
