Your car can take quick corrosion with a grain of salt, if you heed a few hints on protecting it from salt.

Your car can take quick corrosion with a grain of salt, if you heed a few hints on protecting it from salt.

CORROSIVE road salt and brine on the roads can cause rust and corrosion to your car, truck, motorcycle or trailer—but there are steps you can take to protect your vehicle.

Try these three tricks:
1. Wash and wax your car and then use sealant to keep the wax on the paint.

2. Seal the undercarriage, too.

3. Clean your car off with a product engineered to eliminate salt deposits from all surfaces, yet still be easy to use. One such is a formula originally developed to protect and preserve fishing and dive gear on boats that are constantly exposed to the ravages of salt water, and includes highly effective salt-removing components and protective PTEF polymers.


After the salt and brine have been eliminated, these polymers bond to the treated surface to act as a barrier against future deposits. Called Salt Off with PTEF, it’s made by Star brite. It won’t harm fiberglass, plastic, rubber, paint or polished metals and is available as a ready-to-use 22-oz. sprayer and as a concentrate in 32-oz. and gallon containers.
