CDOT Warns Drivers From Mag Chloride Used For Snow
The Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) posts a warning on their site discussing the effects of mag chloride on vehicles:
“As with any form of winter road treatment including sand or salt, liquid anti-icer and de-icer residue should be removed from vehicles with soap and water following winter weather storms. Liquid anti-icers and de-icers are no more damaging to the finish of vehicles than conventional sodium chloride-based products and will wash away with a commercial car wash cleaning. Unlike sand/salt mixtures, the liquids will not damage your car’s paint job or windshield.”
