Salt is a no-go.
For a 6s you will have to make a series light bulb discharger. Put 2 automotive light bulbs in series. An 1157 or 2057 will work. Simply go from your battery plug to a mating plug + to bottom contact/contacts of bulb 1. Solder a short wire from brass side to bulb 2 contact/contacts. Another wire from bulb 2 brass side to the - of plug.
These will get hot and may take all night to fully discharge this pack. Do this in a safe area as you will not be there to monitor it that long.
Just because the light bulbs are not lit the pack may not be fully discharged. Once ALL heat is gone + 1 hour it should be discharged to a safe disposal state.
