With the nice weather I decided to remove all of the crusted salt that accumulated over the winter. After using my finger nails, a rush, water, and Folex I get all of the crud out. Now all I have to do is clean the outside.

Folex?

I haven't had a chance to attend to the Passat yet... I got the Jetta washed and clayed this weekend, but still need a couple of full days to finish the interior, and then spoil the W8. <sigh>

For salt, I use boiled water in a spray bottle with just a little bit of vinegar - spray, scrub, vaccuum, repeat as required. I use Monster Mats in the winter, and then switch to the carpets for summer.

Great stuff. Available at Walmart, Home Depot, and Lowes.

Cool; I'll have to try it out. Apparently I can source it at Canadian Tire, but I've got a Wally and Home Depot nearby, too, if need be.

Did you get it at CanT or HomeDestruction or WallyWorld?

I'm hoping summer comes back for the weekend ... may actually wash the car (I can't add more swirl marks), and vacuum out the interior ... (black on black)
