Winter Survival Tips
Be Prepared For Anything With Household Items
Winter can be fun and pretty but when your car is frozen and iced up, or when your car gets stuck in the snow, it can be pretty aggravating. These tips can make it easy to survive winter with items you probably have around the house.
Frozen Car Door Locks- Is there anything more annoying? You trudge out to your car in the snow or slippery conditions, fall once maybe twice, and to your horror, your Car Door Locks are frozen. The Fix?
A couple of pumps of hand sanitizer on the lock or even the door handle if that is iced shut as well! You will be able to easily unlock and open your car door in no time.
Prevent Frozen Car Door Hinges, Locks, and Handles- I am not one for being mindful of preventative measures…yet. But, if you are thinking ahead, you can help prevent a hectic morning by spraying good ol’ WD-40 on the areas likely to be frozen. Boom.
Ice Stuck Windshield Wipers- Prevent this annoyance by dampening a cloth with your run of the mill rubbing alcohol and wiping down the edges of your windshield wipers. The alcohol makes it less likely that your windshield wipers will stick to your windshield and freeze.
You got into your car to heat it up and defrost, but when your try to head off to work or bring the kids to school (or both), you realize you’re stuck. The fix?
Keep any kind of Kitty Litter handy in your trunk; Kitty Litter doubles as an excellent agent to help your tires gain traction so you can be back on your regular scheduled program with ease.
Foggy Windows- Foggy Windows might just be one of my biggest pet peeves. It feels like whatever I do to defog there is no happy medium and window fogging keeps creeping back into my commute. Drives me nuts. The Epic Fix?
Prevent foggy car windows by spreading shaving cream on your windows, then wipe it off. Oddly and most conveniently, shaving cream contains the same ingredient as commercial defoggers, so a thin layer will help immensely keep you safe and your viability free and clear for winter driving.
