FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an
immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the
confirming email may not reflect oversize or
overweight charges or other issues requiring
direct contact. We process
orders manually, preferring to have a human
actually check things over and contact you
should there be questions. Within 24
hours of placing your order you will receive a
follow-up email confirmation and final invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges
(Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.
Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out
of state orders are tax free. During the
ordering process you can select expedited

Salt-Away has been around for quite a few
years, and I've used it religiously on my own boats and reels. The
product is the best of it's type on the market, with testimonials and
scientific back-up to prove the point. It's the best in the business for
salt reduction and removal.
There are three basic methods of removing salt
2. Pressure from spray bottles, compression pump sprayers, garden or
other hoses, pressure washers. Diluting Salt-Away is necessary either by
pre-mixing or by delivering it from a device that is set to the correct
dilution ration while attached to a water hose.
3. Wet vacuuming
Salt-Away must be diluted. The Salt-Away solution
immediately dissolves any soluble contaminant. Runoff is required to
remove the salt. As runoff begins, ingredients in the product will not
allow the soluble contaminants in their dissolved state to attach to the
surface, and a sheeting effect is created allowing the runoff to carry
the contaminants all the way off the equipment. In areas that stay wet
longer and are primarily inaccessible or where salt is trapped, the
corrosion inhibitors in the product will keep equipment from rusting and
corroding from the inside-out.
Immersing items in a bath of Salt-Away solution is
accomplished by dipping the item into the solution until completely
covered by the liquid, and removing it and allowing the liquid to run
off the surfaces due to gravity. This is a common method for cleaning
reels - the old dump 'em in a bucket routine used on many long range
boats on the way back home. Doing this in plain old water does not
really get the job done, as many guys have found. But, this method when
used with a diluted solution of Salt-Away does work, and work well. The
recommended dilution ratios for an immersion solution with fresh water
can range from 5% to 20% by volume. A richer solution greater than 20%
by volume is not recommended. Rinsing the item with fresh water after
the immersion process is optional.
Application by pressure methods: There are 2
conditions necessary for Salt-Away to remove salt:
(1) the pressure of the water source must be consistent and great enough
to cause runoff and...
(2) complete and thorough runoff of the solution to the exit areas of
the surface must occur. Except for salt build-up areas, results are
immediate. If these conditions do not exist, the Salt-Away solution will
dissolve the salt, but the salt will remain on the surface.
Vertical Surfaces: Upon reaching the surface to be
treated, the Salt-Away solution immediately dissolves any soluble
contaminant. If the pressure is not strong enough to cause complete
runoff, the solution will dissolve the soluble contaminants, the runoff
will begin, then slow to a drizzle, and eventually stop before reaching
the removal area. If this situation occurs, the salt is not fully
Horizontal Surface: The method for removal is more
difficult, but can be accomplished by "pushing" the dissolved
contaminants with the pressurized spray or stream of the Salt-Away
solution until they are pushed off the surface.
Salt crystals are a mineral of the earth and can
not be destroyed. There is no other element or product that can cause
salt crystals to disappear or vanish from a surface by dissolving them.
But they can be moved while in solution! After it is moved, it will stay
where it is put until something else comes along and moves it again.
Salt-Away helps you move the salt away from the metal surfaces you are
attempting to protect.
Recommended Dilution Ratios - for general
(for specific winterizing and for use with more serious
corrosion concerns higher ratios can be recommended - info supplied with
1 oz concentrate/4 gallons of water for pressure applications - water
hose or other non-spray bottle application. Recommended for exterior
salt removal for general maintenance, also recommended for salt water
engine flush applications.
2 oz concentrate/4 gallons of water, for tougher exterior salt removal
How do fishermen and boaters use Salt-Away, the
basic how-to's of it all...
1 - Reel bath - use a diluted solution of Salt-Away in a bucket and dunk
your reel if it's been exposed to a lot of salt or been immersed in
saltwater. Crank up the drag (lever or star) when dunking, back off to
allow the reel to dry. In some cases it's not a bad idea to crank the
handle a few turns to loosen intruded salt deposits.
2 - Spray down - if the salt exposure is
minimal use a diluted spray to dissolve the salt particles and then wipe
'em off the reel.
3 - Boaters should flush their outboards after
saltwater use. The proof is graphic and demonstrable, if you flush your
motor after saltwater use, it WILL LAST LONGER.

Special Secret Blend
Salt-Away is a carefully selected blend of
ingredients specifically chosen to provide the
optimum concentration of well-known cleaning
materials and surface-active agents, to provide
salt removal from a wide variety of surfaces.
There are no hydrocarbon solvents in the formula
and the cleaning action is designed not to
remove lubricating products.
Included in Salt-Away are rinse aids and liquid
and vapor corrosion inhibitors.
The ingredients are considered non-hazardous,
non-toxic, and biodegradable and, as such,
discharging Salt-Away into normal drainage
outlets is safe.
Safe to use on virtually all surfaces, including
Magnesium, Aluminum, Iron, Steel, Stainless
Steel, Chrome, Paint, Gel Coat, Nylon,
Isinglass, Vinyl, Plastic, Glass, Wood, Leather,
Salt-Away is also safe to use near plants, pets,
children and other living things.
Salt Removing Agent
Salt-Away’s salt removing agent completely
removes fresh salt and breaks down salt
Its high, dense foaming action assists as an
indicator to see where Salt-Away has been
applied, and it also ‘clings’ to surfaces to
slowly soak through the layers of salt.
As the salt dissolves into the Salt-Away salt
removing agent, the crystals are lifted into the
If Salt-Away is sprayed on the surface and not
rinsed off, the water evaporates out of the
solution and the salt crystals are embedded into
The liquid and vapor corrosion inhibitors in the
residue will not allow the salt crystals to
attack the surface.
If Salt-Away is rinsed off the surface, the salt
crystals are lifted off the surface and washed
A second application of Salt-Away is recommended
for further protection.
Salt-Away’s salt removing agent, which causes
the foam, is non-hazardous.
This foam dissipates within a few minutes.

Salt-Away’s advanced formula contains a new,
popular rinse aid.
This rinse aid performs while fresh water is
being applied to rinse off equipment.
While the fresh water is mixing with the
Salt-Away solution, the rinse aid causes the
mixture to ‘sheet off’ the surfaces, and keeps
hard minerals from the rinse water from spotting
Liquid and Vapor Corrosion Inhibitors
The ingredient second highest in percentage
content is Salt-Away’s corrosion inhibitors.
Tested for 18 months, this corrosion inhibitor
works in liquid solutions and vapor solutions.
It is 100% non-hazardous and is a
high-performance inhibitor which saves your
equipment from rusting and corroding when
