There is no doubt about it, the cold, snowy winter months can wreak havoc on your home.
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 are 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.
Luckily, SpongeOutlet has a few cleaning tricks to help keep them looking fresh and new until the weather warms up!
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 half and half 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
While waterproofing your boots will keep them from getting wet throughout the winter months, it is hard to keep them salt free.
There are a few different techniques for de-salting footwear, but the Eraser Sponge is the easiest one.
These sponges are tough on dirt without leaving behind residue that will harm your shoes. They can be used on nearly any surface as well, making them perfect for cleaning up the salt stains that end up on your floors after the kids track snow in!
To keep your home, vehicle and winter gear clean all season long, visit SpongeOutlet to purchase your cleaning supplies.
