My only concern with rubbing down the cat with salt is that the salt will be bad for the cat. He's prone to lick himself and will probably lick up too much salt and get sick. And to be honest, I don't know if salt is effective against fleas.
Your best bet is to go to your vet and get either some Revolution or Advantage. That will work quickly and safely.
However you will still have to de-flea your house. The most effective and safe way is, as Laureen mentioned, Diatomaceous Earth. Here is a link which will give you more information:http://www.shadowridgedonkeys.com/perma_guard_what.htm
Once you did a treatment with Advantage or Revolution you will only need to use the Fossil Shell grade, which is safe and edible for both humans and cats.
You will also need to vacuum your house really well and wash all bedding etc. Also, once you have applied the DE don't vacuum it out for a couple of days, if possible so it has a chance to work.
