We present a theory which accounts for the increase in interfacial tension of water due to the presence of 1:1 electrolyte. The agreement between the theory and experiment is excellent, extending all the way to relatively high salt concentrations of 1 M. For low concentrations of electrolyte the theory reduces to the Onsager-Samaras limiting law.
