    Ordinarily, lots of detergent in water gets rid of salt , rinse well.
    Water alone does not cut it.

    What a crock of BS! Salt!! As if we just started living in the middle of a body of salt water last week.

    Don’t forget to change out the air in your car tyres from “summer” air to “winter” air.
