    someone tols me that if you mix vinegar with water when washing your truck it will neutralize the salt....anyone hear if there is any truth to it?

    I'm pretty sure that if your washing your truck, using soap and the act of "washing" will accomplish the same thing.

    The vinegas ixed with water keeps it from spotting. Ask anyone that does pressure washing of cars. Mix 1 gallon of vinegar in 50gallons of water and it works great.

    I use it whenever my trucks start getting that "not so fresh" feeling. Actually, this is an old practice that has been used for generations...Beach Boys even did a song about it.

    I guess you might as well lubricate at the same time...........that's right....oil & vinegar

    It isnt the parts that can be waxed that really need to be washed and cleaned of salt

    Never used Salt Away, but yes vinegar will work you'll have to figure out at what dilution or any product labeled as a neutral cleaner.
