So why is my new brine shrimp tank setup water cloudy?

so i just added clean declorine water with the right amount of table salt for my brine shrimp tank and it has been sitting for over 24 hours at 80F now and the water is still cloudy... why is that? and how can i get it to clear up...

WITH TABLE SALT?!?!? I dont think table salt works for brine shrimp........ I KNOW IT DOESNT WORK FOR SALTWATER OR BRACKISH TANKS................ I wouldnt use table salt. Just seems kinda weird.
