Salt stains are common during Winnipeg winters. You know that telltale white line and stiff fabric along the hems of your pants. Although the salt helps to prevent people from falling, walking in areas that have been salted you kick or splash the salt up onto clothing. Salt from streets also splashes up onto your car and then you may rub against it, transferring it onto your clothing. Salt is very corrosive and will eat away at fibers if not completely removed. While wiping it away with a damp cloth while it’s fresh can sometimes help, salt does build up over time and can lead to unwanted discoloration and damage to clothing.
