Winter Car Hacks | Luther Burnsville Hyundai

When you live up North snow and below freezing temperatures are just a part of life. Don’t let winter weather stop you in your tracks though. Use these helpful winter car hacks to get you through to spring. Rise With The SunNaturally combat the ice with a little help from Mother Nature. At night, park your car facing the east. The sun rises in the east and will defrost your windshield for you. LockoutFrozen locks? Quickly melt a frozen lock with a pour of rubbing alcohol or squirt of hand sanitizer. The alcohol will quickly melt away ice, freeing your locks. Debit or Credit?Frozen windshield with no signs of an ice scraper? In a pinch a few household items can get the job done. If you are at home, grab a spatula and scrape away. If you are away from home, a credit card or any other plastic card will do the trick, just be sure to wear gloves. Wrap It UpPrevent ice from forming on side mirrors by wrapping them in plastic bags. Secure the bags with clothes pins or rubber bands and your mirrors will be ice free in the morning. P.E. 101Dig those old tube socks out of your drawer and slip them over your windshield wipers to prevent ice build-up overnight. Simply pull the socks off in the morning to reveal clean and ice-free wipers ready for the road. Spray It DownThe salt and dirt that can build up under your vehicle when driving on ice and snow can be quite harmful to your vehicle’s undercarriage. Easily clean off all that grime on a warmer day by sliding a lawn sprinkler under your vehicle. Turn the sprinkler on and drive back and forth over it a few times. Extra Greasy PleaseSpray cooking spray in the cracks of your doors and on the rubber to help prevent them freezing shut at night. Any water that gets trapped between your doors at night will freeze, but cooking spray helps prevent water from getting trapped there in the first place.
