Since “it’s cold outside” isn’t enough of an excuse to stay home from work, it’s helpful to have a few tricks up your sleeve to make the ride to work easier. These hacks for winter driving from Bob Ross Buick GMC will help make your commute as simple and safe as possible—even when you’re driving through a winter wonderland.
Protect Your Wipers
Windshield wipers are very important, especially in the winter. But send them for a few passes over an icy windshield, and they could get damaged and stop working as well, which means you’re left with poor visibility. Keep this from happening by lifting your windshield wipers up when snow or ice is expected. You can even use an extra pair of socks to cover the wiper blades and protect them from precipitation so they’ll be ready to go.
You can buy products that will melt away the frost and ice from your windshield, but these are sometimes a little pricey and also filled with chemicals. Make a natural, and inexpensive version of this tool yourself by mixing three parts vinegar with one part water into a spray bottle.
Brush Your Headlights
Ok, so you don’t have to use a toothbrush. But adding some toothpaste to your headlights and rinsing it off with warm water is a great way to give them a good washing. Cleaner headlights means better visibility for you and other drivers, which is always a good thing.
