The winter season brings us snowy and cold weather. We already know that, and we also know that salt can play a major role in keeping items we own dirty throughout the winter. Salt is used to de-ice the roads, but it also likes to attach itself to our cars, clothes, and boots. Some of the biggest problems that we have to face throughout the winter are the salt stains that coat our cars and boots.
Whether you’re out shoveling your driveway or on your way to work, it is inevitable that you will get snow – and salt – on your footwear and vehicle on a daily basis during the winter season.
Sponge Outlet has a few cleaning tricks to make sure your car, as well as your boots are clear of the salt stains, so you won’t create more of a mess in your home or car.
Cleaning Vehicles of Salt
The salt stains that coat your vehicle aren’t just an unattractive nuisance; they can actually do a lot of damage to your paint job.
- To keep your car looking its best, we recommend spot cleaning your vehicle with a microfiber towel dipped in a mixture of water and vinegar.
This cleaning solution is gentle on your vehicle’s paint but tough on salt, and the microfiber towel will keep any scratches from occurring as you wipe the car down.
Removing Salt from Footwear
Waterproofing your boots will keep them from getting wet throughout the winter months, but they’re not full proof on keeping the salt stains off the boots. There are a few different techniques for de-salting footwear, but the Instant Erase Shoe/Sneaker Cleaner provided by us is the best option to clean your footwear during the winter season.
This cleaner is tough on dirt without leaving behind residue that will harm your shoes. You can expect your footwear to last much longer throughout the years if you use this product to clean your shoes during the winter season. It can be a pain to clean your shoes constantly during the winter, but the Instant Erase Shoe/Sneaker Cleaner makes it that much easier.
