Seven winter car tricks to save time and effort
Winter is not the most favorable time for car enthusiasts, because many unnecessary problems arise: tires need to be changed, windows constantly fog up, and every morning you have to clean the car from snow and ice.
Project AdMe.ru collected tricks that will simplify car care in the winter.
How to prevent: Mix vinegar and water (3 to 1) and spray on the glass.
How to solve a problem: if the glass is already frozen, then add pure alcohol (1 ml), water (600 ml) and dishwashing detergent (200 drop) to a spray bottle (1 l). Spray this mixture onto the frosted glass.
How to solve a problem: The usual hand sanitizer perfectly helps to remove the ice formed and put the mechanism into action. Put a few drops on the key or in the hole, and everything will go like clockwork.
You can also use the old proven method: heat the key with a lighter and insert it into the lock. But be careful - don't get burned.
How to prevent: To prevent the lock from freezing, inject cold WD-40 into the well before the onset of extreme cold. It will take a few minutes, but it will relieve you of problems with the castle in winter.
Doors do not open
How to prevent: here will help the usual culinary spray (this is sold in any supermarket). Just spray it on the rubber door gasket and wipe with a paper towel.
How to solve a problem: Wipe the window with an eraser for the blackboard - it will no longer mist, and there will be no divorce.
How to prevent: Fill an old sock or cloth bag with cat litter and place it under the seat. The filler makes the air less humid, and haze on the windows will no longer bother you.
Tip: Do not leave open containers with liquid or water in your car overnight.
Ice on the side mirrors
How to prevent: to avoid the formation of ice on the mirrors, simply wrap them in plastic bags overnight and fasten tightly with an elastic band. After removing the packages in the morning, you will see that the mirrors are perfectly clean and you do not have to waste time cleaning them.
Frozen and fogged lights

Car stuck in the snow
