While snow in southern Nevada is an excellent medium for social media, it can also be a real "pain in the ice" if you wake up in a frozen car before your morning commute.
So we've looked at websites to find some tips to help you through the next few days of exceptionally cold weather. Here are some suggestions found online:
- Instead of letting ice or snow accumulate on the windshield of your car, throw a large towel or rug over the glass. This way, you can remove it in the morning and you can leave.
- Slip your old socks on your wiper blades. This will prevent the ice from forming on the blades and sticking to the glass. Just remove the socks when you're ready to drive (or leave them there for your car to make a fashion statement). NOTICE: If you come to your car and find the windshield covered with ice or snow, DO NOT pour hot water over the glass to melt it. The extreme temperature difference may be enough to crack your windshield.
- The hand sanitizer is ideal for de-icing a frozen door lock. Just throw it in the key slot and the alcohol in the hand sanitizer will melt the ice!
- A plastic store is great for wrapping mirrors and keeping them from getting stuck in ice or snow.
- The toothpaste can be used to remove the crud from your headlights and make them a little brighter during a rainy and rainy drive. Apply a thin layer to the headlight and rinse it with lukewarm water (even if you do not get the desired results, your car will smell like fresh mint).
