Driving in winter can be very treacherous. To make the roads safer for traveling, highway professionals put salt on the road, which makes the ice melt quicker. While the salt can be a lifesaver, it can also be very harmful to your car. Salt left on your vehicle can cause corrosion and rust very quickly, which can decrease the value of your vehicle. There are ways to prevent your vehicle from salt corrosion.

It’s important to wash your car every few days. Be sure to wash it when the temperatures are as high as possible. The ideal temperature is 40 degrees or higher. The vehicle should be washed during the daytime when the temperatures are the warmest so it can dry without freezing. Failure to do this can result in the door locks freezing. You should also wax the vehicle often during inclement weather because wax will protect your vehicle’s paint and prevent it from rusting.
