Chances are, if you live in an area of the world that has some pretty heavy snow fall during the winter months, you know how much a double edged sword this time of year can be. After all, there are beautiful scenes of a winter wonderland everywhere you look. However, along with those beautiful vistas come some fairly nasty stains from the salt used on roads and sidewalks. These salt stains can get into everything, clothes and closet alike. Here are a few methods that you can use to begin removing salt stains when you are faced with them.
While these are some fairly effective methods for dealing with salt stains, there are a couple of sure fire methods that you can make sure that you don't have to worry about these kinds of stains. The first is that you never use any actual salt to melt your ice. Instead use ice melt, which is actually different from salt and formulated to be more gentle on concrete and other masonry. In addition, this type of material will be less likely to cause any stains. Another method is to not store your wet boots in the closet, but rather on a tile floor that will be easier to clean. The final method, at least for dealing with salt stains in a closet, is to use a carpet cleaning machine.
