DE-IC­ING MADE EASY

Win­ter­proof your car in min­utes with these top tips…

YOURS (UK) - - Good To Know -

Wipers

Stop wipers freez­ing to your wind­screen and get­ting dam­aged by pop­ping some long socks over them to pro­tect them from ice and snow.

Doors

Wipe some cook­ing oil spray in the cracks of your doors and rub­ber seals to stop them from freez­ing shut at night.

Head­lights

Hav­ing fully work­ing lights is es­pe­cially im­por­tant in win­ter. Keep yours as bright as pos­si­ble by cov­er­ing each light in tooth­paste then rins­ing off with warm wa­ter. Dry and ap­ply a layer of wax. This will keep snow and wa­ter from stick­ing to your lights for weeks!

Win­dows

Mix to­gether three­parts white vine­gar and one-part wa­ter in a spray bot­tle. Spray this over win­dows to pre­vent ice form­ing.

Side mir­rors

Cover your wing mir­rors with plas­tic freezer bags and se­cure with an elas­tic band. When you re­move them in the morn­ing your mir­rors will be ice free!

Park­ing

When­ever you can, try to park your car fac­ing east overnight. As the sun rises, it will nat­u­rally de­frost your wind­shield, giv­ing you less ice to scrape off in the morn­ing.
