This is cheap and easy.

  • 1 In a bucket, mix 2 tbsp. of baking soda, dolopril limestone, or granular gypsum with 1/2 cup of automotive wash and 1/2 gallon of water. Wear latex gloves to keep your hands dry. Stir the mixture with a sponge. Dolopril limestone and granular gypsum are available at hardware and home improvement stores as well as garden centers.

  • 2 Apply the mixture to the undercarriage and any other areas of your vehicle containing road salt or a salt/sand mixture. Scrub the vehicle thoroughly to remove road salt.

  • 3 Spray your vehicle with water to remove the road salt and cleaning mixture.

That's why I like rain storms. Very little effort or expense required.

Thanks. I think this is pretty effective at deactivating the process. Calcium chloride wont come off with water alone or with soap spray. I live on a dirt road and the calcium chloride is year around.

The calcium chloride used today, and in fact in most places for the last 10+ years! is "corrosion-inhibited" stuff and is 80 to 90% less corrosive than rock salt. It also generally applied to dry roads prior to snow falls to prevent now from building up or adhering to roads.

And yes, if it's not allowed to dry in place, and especially if it's encountered when the undercarriage is already wet, it washes off very well with nothing but lots of water.

AMEN to that...and I stay put until the first rain that comes along to wash off the streets...

If you stay put when the first snow flake fly's, how do you get to the ski slopes to go skiing?
