Car washes and salt - WARNING.
« on: May 30, 2007, 09:09:15 AM »
Hi all.
A reliable source within the car wash industry informed me of a horrible situation the other day.

Here in Victoria (and elsewhere I imagine) we have lots of those self car wash places with the horrible broom etc. that you wash your car with. I have been washing my Cadillac for the past year at these places, but I was going late at night with my bucket and sponge to avoid using the scratchy-broom. (We can't wash here at home anymore because of water restrictions).

Anyway, the water at these car washes is recycled, and apparently to stop it going off it is treated with SALT!! I've gotta say, that in the last year a few rust spots have shown up on my car, faster then I would normally expect.

So you've been warned. According to my source, there is SALT in the water at these car washes. Unbelievable, but apparently true.
