This is the quote from the product web site.

Quote:
Water alone will not remove salt. Use of Salt-Away will not correct past damage but will work to protect against salt corrosion and reduces costly repairs caused by salt. Salt-Away breaks down and removes salt build-up with repeated use.
Water will remove salt and repeated use is required!

Salt is by definition the most soluble substance in water on the planet. It's why we have so much of it in sea water. While the product may aid in reducing the build up it clearly won't work without repeated use as stated by the product web site.

I'm in a quandary of trying to understand just what really is alleged that it does. That says nothing a to if the claims are true.

This is meant to be humorous....but here in the states, we have infomercials about every conceivable gadget, kitchen, cleaning, gluing, cutting.......

It seems that all the spokes men are Australians with what seems to be a really stereotypical accent.....Like Crocodile Dundee on steroids.

Saltaway.......right up there with Algae-X......

By the way I have a computer that requires no electrical power.

If you would like to onvest send 19.95 per share to

SUCABA USA
BOX FEE-FI-FO-FO (3544)
Crikeytown MRE USA

Dry Away! - Is dryness a problem for you? Perhaps you are not aware of the problems that can be caused by dryness. When exposed to dryness for extended periods, everyday items in use around your home could fade, crack, blister and peel.

For a limited time, we are making available, direct to the public our scientifically proven system of Wet. One bottle of Wet can immediately solve your dryness problems. With repeated use, Wet can keep even the dryest items moist laden.

Fast easy and simple to use, Wet is a real cost saver when you consider the detrimental effects of dryness. And when used in conjunction with our complimentary product, shade, the benefits can be multiplied many times over.

For a free sample of Wet along with 1 square inch of shade please send $99.92 (not for shipping and handling but to buy me a new ferarri) to P.O. Box 1, Imadumass , USA"

Salt-Away contains less than 5% Sulfamic Acid* (H3NSO3), and Water (H2O).

Share Corporation MSDS: http://www.sharecorp.com/msds/0710SaltAway.pdf

Sulfamic Acid is used in the synthesis of compounds that taste sweet, and as a mild acidic cleaning agent, typically for metals and ceramics. It is a replacement for hydrochloric acid for the removal of rust. In households, it is often found as a descaling agent in detergents used for removal of lime scale.
The pulp and paper industry uses H3NSO3 as a chloride* stabilizer (salt is sodium chloride, NaCl), so there may be some efficacy (as salt solvent/dispersant) in adding H3NSO3 to water.

Unfortunately, the manufacturer offers no information to substantiate it's (nebulous) claims.

Sulfamic Acid MSDS: SULFAMIC ACID
