Defrost windshield in snow

Defrost your windshield quickly with an inexpensive and easy solution!

Car door lock covered in ice?

  • If you find the lock already frozen, you can spay de-icer into the lock. It is good to keep a few cans handy in the winter months.
  • If you do not have de-icer, Petroleum jelly or Vaseline can melt the ice. Dip the key into the Vaseline, then insert it into the lock. Once in the lock try to wiggle the key. Do not force the key to turn; this could result in breaking the key off in the lock. If this does not work right away, repeat the steps three or four more times, then wait for five minutes.

Icy side mirrors?

To prevent ice from forming on side mirrors, cover them the night before with plastic bags secured with rubber bands or clothespins. When you remove the bags in the morning, the mirrors will be ice-free!

Winter is inevitable here in New England, so let’s enjoy the beautiful view of the snow and use these simple solutions to make our lives easier! #snow #snowday #staysafe
