How to protect your car body from corrosion in winter: tips and tricks
Winter is a difficult period for drivers, not only because of the cold and icing. At this time of year, utility services actively use reagents on the roads, which can seriously damage the car’s coating due to corrosion processes.

However, this can be prevented, experts say. They emphasize that preparing a car for winter should begin in the fall. In October or November, it is advisable to polish the car to remove cracks and chips in the coating, where corrosion processes may begin.
If for some reason the driver was unable to take the car to a service station, there are other ways to protect against reagents and salt. Experts note that corrosion starts from the inside, not the outside of the car. Therefore, before getting into the car, you should dust off your feet to prevent large amounts of snow from getting into the cabin.
It is also recommended to regularly wash off harmful deposits. However, it is important to remember one important nuance in winter related to washing: you must wait until all the drops of water on the car have evaporated.
