As you double check your emergency car kit and pack your presents, keep in mind the foreign contaminates that will cling to your car during your travels.

Freezing Conditions

When you travel to New York, Wisconsin, or even Texas these days you’ll want to prepare for cold-weather driving conditions. Thoroughly clean your car and coat your wheels, windshield, and wipers with an ice-repelling wax sealant. Not only does a protective coating keep your family safe during holiday travels, it also protects your car from long-term winter damage.
