Make a “Clean Get Away” From That Salty Car
Well it’s that time of the year again; most of the roads and ditches are fully covered in the cold white stuff winter brings, and with it the corrosive sodium monster used to clear the roads at this time of the year.

It's true! Nothing is harder on a car body than the excess amount of salt we need to use on the roads during icy and snowy weather. A simple Google search shows you that salt just so happens to create a chemical reaction that can and will corrode your car. That’s especially true for any exposed metal. Two car parts that are especially susceptible to corrosion and rust are the brake and fuel lines (I’m pretty sure you need those working correctly, right?). So far in the last two years I have had the joy of replacing all 4 of my wheel bearings; due to, you guessed it, salt, dirt, and sand getting past the seals. And trust me if this happens, you'll hear it and feel it. Once that salt touches the bearings, it will contaminate the grease, causing the bearings to wear down, eventually leading to complete failure. No one wants to see their tire pass them while they’re driving on the highway.
So how do we fight the salt that makes us and our wallets so… salty? (see what I did there) First off wash your car as soon as possible. You can do that at one of the many convenient Clean Getaway Express Tunnel Wash locations. In fact, it's best to do it right after each snow or ice storm. And right now, you can get unlimited washes for as low as $19 a month. In fact, plans will run you just 10 bucks in the first month when you sign-up. It's a small price to pay to keep your vehicle from rusting out.
Remember it is very important to get all the salt cleaned off from the underside of the vehicle as well. Rust can spread fast when pushed on by road salt, and you may not think of it at all since most of you will never look under your vehicle. Using a touchless car wash, like Clean Getaway is just a better option than trying to do it your self in the winter; especially if your scrubbing by hand... Why? Because the salt and sand is an abrasive and we don’t want to “sand” the paint off our vehicle while trying to clean it. Rather, we want it fully hosed down and then protected; and Clean Getaway offers their ceramic coating which is second to none, especially in these mid-west conditions.
It’s like clear coat on a kitchen table, but for your car. The amazing preventative steps Celan Getaway provides can keep your vehicle looking newer, longer. And WE like that. So, keep you and your car from getting salty this year. Avoid the rust, dirty car, and empty wallet this year with Clean Getaway Express Tunnel Wash. Your car will thank you.
