Keep Your Windshield Frost-free This Winter

Keeping your windshield and wipers frost-free in winter.

auto maintenance 12-11-17 Share:

Driving in the winter months presents enough trouble without the added danger – and hassle – of frost on your windshield and windshield wipers. A few simple, inexpensive winter wiper tips can keep you out of the cold and your windshield clean.

Mix a solution of three-parts white vinegar and one-part part in a clean spray bottle. Shake the liquid well to ensure it combines properly.

Spray the outside of all of your windows, especially the windshield, evenly with the water and vinegar solution.

The vinegar prevents frost from forming on your windshield, making winter driving safer and getting on the road on those cold winter mornings even faster.

Reapply the water and vinegar solution to all of the windows every two weeks to maintain the protection against ice and frost forming on the windshield surface.

Using vinegar and water, you can save – or repair temporarily – windshield wiper blades as well. When the wiper blades seem to be missing spots on the windshield, streaking more than cleaning or “skittering” across the windshield, vinegar and water can help with that as well.

Using a clean cloth saturated with vinegar, wipe each wiper blade twice to ensure the entire wiper blade surface is covered evenly. Next, use a clean cloth dampened with water and wipe the wiper blades once again. Wiping the wiper blades with clean water simply cleans away any excess vinegar.
