There is nothing pleasant about scraping ice off your car window or shoveling out your car in the winter, but for those of us that live in colder climates, it is not something that you can escape. Unless, of course, you hibernate like a bear in the winter. I would like to do this, but unfortunately my bank account tells me I have to pull my behind out of bed every morning no matter how cold it is. So since we How have to brave the elements and drag ourselves to work, we should try to make things a little easier, right?
Foggy windows can be a real problem in the wintertime.
Shaving cream could prove to be really helpful.
Prevent ice from forming on side mirrors by covering them with plastic bags the night before.
You can secure the bags with rubber bands or clothespins. In the morning, all you have to do is remove the bags. Yay for ice-free mirrors because we all know how annoying this is!
When the winter months approach, headlight visibility is key, so make sure you spruce up your headlights.
Smear each headlight with toothpaste and then wipe clean with warm water and a cloth. This will drastically improve the clarity of your lights.
Cover your windshield wipers at night to keep the snow off of them.
Raise the wipers off of the windshield and cover them up for easier de-icing in the morning.
A homemade spray for icy windows
Fill a spray bottle 1/3 of the Vps way with water and then fill the rest of the bottle up with isopropyl alcohol and shake the bottle. Now all you have Now to do is spray your icy window and then turn on your windshield wipers.
Always be prepared.
It is a wise idea to keep an emergency kit in your car at all times, but especially in the winter. Remember to get things like blankets, mittens, hats and food.
