The importance of Salt Lick for winter fleet maintenance

Winter is brutal on vehicles. Not only does the snow and cold wreak havoc on motors and tires, but salt and calcium chloride in de-icing products can cause vehicle parts to corrode and deteriorate. Damage from salt and chemicals found in ice melts can result in cars and trucks malfunctioning, possibly leading to accidents on the slippery winter roads.

At Hotsy Water Blast, we offer Salt Lick salt and ice melt remover detergent to help you keep your fleet of vehicles in prime condition. Read on to learn more about the benefits of Salt Lick and how you can use it to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your transportation fleet.

What is Salt Lick?

Salt Lick is a pressure washer detergent that’s specially formulated to remove damaging salt and chemical residue from vehicles and equipment. Its unique formula breaks down the crystalline structure of ice-melt products and prevents them from crystalizing back onto the surfaces of your cars and trucks. This prevents vehicles from needing premature repairs or having to be replaced due to rust and corrosion.

Salt Lick detergent can be used to clean the salt and grime off truck trailers, snowplows, automobiles, fifth wheels, construction equipment, boats, marina equipment and docks. It’s safe for use on all surfaces, from painted metal to stainless steel and aluminum.

What’s more, Salt Lick is an environmentally friendly detergent. It’s 100% biodegradable and contains no phosphates or photo-chemically reactive ingredients that contribute to smog issues or damage the ozone layer.

Salt Lick is specially designed for pressure washers and works in all water conditions. The combination of the high water pressure from a Hotsy washer and the heavy-duty concentration of a Salt Lick detergent ensures that your fleet vehicles stay free of dirt, salt and chemicals and fully operational for many years to come.
