How to Prevent Car Rust in Winter

prevent car rustWinter is the season of rust—snow itself is bad enough, but add in all those chemicals from salting the roads and you have a recipe for disaster. Once rust finds its way onto your car, it spreads like the common cold. Here are some easy tips to prevent car rust this season.

First, wash your car regularly. Whether you’re at home or you go to a drive-through one, you need to get all the salt and grim and mud off your car before it starts to damage the metal. In winter, it’s good to do this once every week or two.

Don’t forget to spray the underside of the car! If the person or machine doing your car wash doesn’t get the underside, take it home and spray it down. This is where the most salt collects.

You can also protect your car by waxing it. A wax at the beginning of the season should keep the paintjob safe from the elements for the season, though if you live in very salty area you might want to invest in some anti-rust spray.
