  • During the winter months, your floor mats and carpets will have salt stain buildups. The mats are designed to be fairly easy to clean but sometimes salt stains make it a bit more challenging. Spray a salt remover, like emzone Salt & Stain Remover, and scrub out the stains. Clean the mats regularly to ensure that water doesn't seep through the mats to help prevent corrosion of your vehicle's body.


  • Mold odors tend to form more frequently in the winter months as moisture seeps into your vehicle and stays there unless action is taken. The unpleasant odor has a musty scent to it which makes driving less enjoyable. Actions such as cleaning your mats, or kicking the snow off your boots before entering your car help reduce moisture buildup in the car. To neutralize odors, using emzone OdorStop will eliminate the mold odor so that you can drive without inhaling fumes from mold. Note: mold fumes can cause serious health problems with constant exposure such as allergies, migraines and respiratory problems.


  • Cars tend to be their dirtiest during the winter season. While you may not want to spend much time outside, you can quickly spray emzone Waterless Wash & Wax and use an emzone Microfibre Cloth to quickly remove dirt from your car's body. Cleaning the car in the garage may make the cold more bearable. Use emzone Foaming Glass Cleaner to remove grime and salt stains from windows and mirrors.


  • Keep your car rust free. Keeping your car in the garage while it's not in use, cleaning your salt stained car regularly, and having a waterproof floor mat are all ways to help keep your car rust free in the winter months.


  • The winter months are harsh on tires and rims.  Clean one wheel at a time. Use emzone Tire and Rim products to thoroughly clean the wheels. All you need to do is spray the product onto the surface and wipe it away with a cloth.
