f Old Man Winter has been dumping lots of snow, ice and frigid temperatures, then your car is probably showing the side effects of winter. From frozen doors to icy windshields, here are a few hacks to get your car ready to roll even in the coldest weather and snow.
You can’t start your commute if you can’t get inside your car! Those freezing temps and ice can make getting into car seem impossible. A few squirts of antibacterial gel will quickly unfreeze your door locks. The trick here is the alcohol in your hand sanitizer! It actually melts the ice and allows you to safely open your car. If you can plan ahead before the cold weather hits, spray 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.
Ice on your windshield not melting fast enough? No one wants to stand outside to scrape their windshields, so use this cheap and easy DIY de-icer. Mix three parts white vinegar with one part water into a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto your windshield before it gets cold and snowy outside to stop the ice from forming.
