Tools to Keep in Your Car During the Winter

This past week, we have already encountered our first winter frost.  Many of you woke up to some sort of ice accumulation over your car windshields.  As the winter weather carries on, it is important to be prepared for all of the winter weather conditions ahead that might save a little hassle, save a few minutes, and keep you safe before you hit the roads ahead.

Here are a few ways that you can be prepared for the winter weather ahead:

  • Keep an ice scraper in your car:  If last year taught us anything, it’s that ice and snow can accumulate even while we are away at work.  Many people think that by pouring a hot cup of water over your windshield is a great way to get rid of the ice accumulated on your car.  In fact, this method can make matters worse for your car.  The water can refreeze over your windshield, or it could crack the glass on the car windshield.  Scraping the ice off of your windshield is a much better alternative than cracking your glass.
  • Spray Rain-X De-Icer on your car windshield:  Rain-X makes a great de-icer for your car that works by spraying it on and then running your windshield wipers to help decrease the amount of time you spend scraping the ice off of your car’s windshield.
  • Use Rain-X to prevent ice:  The original Rain-X formula is great at preventing ice and snow from accumulating on your car’s windshield.  It is a great first defense for your car.
After washing and waxing your car before the winter weather hits, using a few of these winter tools to keep your car windshield clear of ice will help you safely onto the road with less hassle than your average driver.
