When Old Man Winter can be seen in the rearview mirror, do one more thing to celebrate spring: Get your car washed. The caustic salt used to de-ice roads can also cause damage to the undercarriage of your car; over time, it can rust the metal away. To protect your car from rust, take it to a car wash that has sprayers that can clean the undercarriage. This is not a DIY cleaning project that can be done easily at home, so let the pros handle it.
