There is so much to love about winter: watching the beautiful snow fall, ice skating, skiing, building snowmen, and sipping hot coco after a fun day of playing outside. However, there is a lot to winter that isn’t so great: ice, snow covered roads, and freezing temps. Since we can’t always play in the snow or just stay inside and wait for spring, here’s a few winter life hacks to help you survive the coldest months.
With freezing temperatures often comes car doors that are frozen stuck. Use this hack to fix a frozen door. Spray a small amount off cooking spray on the inside of your doors to prevent them from freezing at night. The cooking spray keeps the water that runs in the cracks of your door and the rubber parts from freezing overnight.
Foggy windows and windshield are a constant winter annoyance and it makes driving impossible! Stay safe while you drive with this hack. There are two quick fixes: roll down the window for some fresh air to defog and use a chalkboard eraser to clear the windows without leaving a smudgy mess behind.
To prevent the foggy windows, put shaving cream on the inside of your windows and wipe it off. The shaving cream will leave a thin layer on your window, but won’t affect your view. The ingredients in shaving cream are similar to expensive commercial defoggers.
