Salt-Away vs. Salt Terminator
Do any of you have any experience with these two products? I've been using Salt Terminator because it's cheaper. However, after hosing off my engine with Salt Terminator, and then rinsing with fresh water, I always still see some white residue around the engine and I find salt crystals inside and out of the ski. If Salt-Away can get rid of this problem, then I would gladly pay the extra cash. I'm a little bit OCD about cleaning the ski and fighting the never-ending battle against potential rust.
One more question, could the white residue I see around the engine be the result of salt coming in contact with the tremendous amounts of BRP XP-S that I spray everywhere after each ride? Do anti corrosion lubes actually disolve salt?

Salt Away always worked well for me.
Anti-C Lubes wont "dissolve" anything

After you spray Salt-Away and then rinse it off with fresh water, do you also use air pressure gun so to completly dry the engine before you spray the XP-S lube?

Salt Away works for me but it's important to rinse througly and rinse well when using it to flush. Don't leave residue in the line...

I've used both.....currently use Salt Terminator, since it's readily available close by (Academy). My experience is that they work the same, they may even be the same product, I don't know. I've also heard that this stuff is just detergent with a bit more surfactant qualities.....seems to smell, taste and feel like dishwashing liquid IMO. Any chemists here who can shed some light?
