MOSES LAKE, WA — It’s important to utilize the fact that salt is bad for your car in all of your marketing and ad campaigns and on all of your signage. And, according to an article in The Herald, residents here are being urged to wash their cars on a regular basis, especially in the wintertime.
The Jan. 19 article said a snowstorm touched down here and as a result salt, sand and chemical road treatments were used on the roads and ended up on vehicles.
Terry Van Hoven, manager of the Washington State Department of Transportation, warned readers in the article to go and get their cars washed.
Emily Phillips with the Puget Sound Carwash Association was also quoted in the article as saying, “If you are a car owner, summer may be the most popular season to wash your car. But for your car, winter is the best season — especially when corrosive salt and sand are applied to roads to break down ice and snow brought on by winter storms.”
