Road salt may be an essential part of the winter motoring diet for the nation’s local authorities, but it’s far from healthy for your pride and joy, with the car’s bodywork, wheels and trim all vulnerable to salt-fuelled corrosive attack.

With the recent spate of snow in the past, but perhaps more to come, car care expert Armor All recommends that now’s the time for a spot of long-lasting remedial treatment – removing salt residue with a thorough wash, and then protecting from future attack with its latest product, Shield.

Providing far greater and longer-lasting protection to paintwork than a conventional car wax, Armor All Shield is also a great deal more time and labour-saving.

A thorough application and light wipe of the product, following a wash, is all that’s needed, with no need for buffing. Once applied, each wash reactivates the protective shield to maintain paintwork shine and protection for up to ten washes. So confident is Armor All of the product’s superior performance that it offers a money-back guarantee.

Armor All Shield is available now from Halfords stores nationwide or online at www.halfords.com, and all good motoring accessory shops, with a recommended price of £18.99 for a long-lasting 500ml bottle.

Ask also for Armor All Heavy Duty Car Wash to remove all traces of salt and grime prior to applying Shield.
