Winter is almost upon us and the inevitable cold temps make our lives a little more uncomfortable. Just today I scraped ice off of my windscreen for the first time this year. I could have used these helpful hints from Dawn Fabiszak to help me out.
I live in the Denver area where the weather is unpredictable, temperatures can drop quickly and snow can start falling at any time. I am fortunate to have a garage to protect my car from the elements....when I am at home. But when I am at work or out shopping, my car is exposed to the snow and cold temperatures. I can say that I do not enjoy streaky windshield wipers and frozen doors.
Here are some easy helpful hints to make the side effects of winter a little more bearable.
Are you tired of squeaky and streaky windshield wipers? By taking a cloth saturated in rubbing alcohol or ammonia and wiping the wipers will stop this from happening.
Do your headlights get "clogged" with the winter muck? You can use car wax to prevent the winter muck from accumulating on them. All you have to do is rub the car wax directly onto the headlights. It will act as a water repellent and will last for about 6 weeks.
Do you find your windows full of frost and ice in the morning? Take a mixture of 3 parts vinegar to 1 part water and spritz the outsides of your windows at night before you settle in for the night. The vinegar contains acetic acid which raises the melting point of water, not allowing it to freeze.
I just hate when my windows fog up. Here's an easy solution. Take some shaving cream and spray the inside of your windows and wipe them down with paper towels. (Commercial defoggers contain some of the same ingredients.)
Have you ever had frozen car door locks? Did you know hand sanitizer works? Just put some of the hand sanitizer on both the key and the lock and voila....no more frozen door lock.
Another problem I have had in the past is when the actual door has frozen closed. You can take regular cooking spray (like Pam) and spray it on the rubber seal of the door and wipe off the excess with a paper towel and the cooking oil prevents the water from melting into the rubber.
These helpful tips will help you save some time in the morning from the elements of the previous coming cold and snowy evenings, even if you park outside.

Servicing buyers and sellers in the Denver metro area since 1993
I am a Maryland transplant from many other places, most recently Florida, but since 1997 I have found my true home in the heart of this great State. Maryland has it all. Mountains 3 hours to the West, the Atlantic Ocean 3 hours to the East and head North and South for either Philadelphia and New York or Washington DC. It is the perfect location! The Metro Baltimore area offers a rich mix of history and modern amenities. City living, suburbia or "not a neighbor in sight" is available in this area. Excellent Schools, amazing communities and an incredible location is why many people choose to live in Central Maryland. I proudly help my clients buy and sell all types of homes in Howard County and beyond. Enjoying the entire process is my goal for my clients. Every transaction is different and everyone has different needs. I know the Metro Baltimore area well and I am current on the Real Estate Market activity- That's my job.
As your "Buyers Agent" I will work diligently to find you the home that suits all your needs. I will update you immediately when a home matches your search criteria. I will educate you on the current market and help you craft the best offer possible. I will "hold your hand" throughout the entire process.
As your "Listing Agent" I will coach and guide you from day one to put your best foot forward when you list your home. I will use aggressive and innovative marketing strategies to give your home the best exposure possible. I will use modern technology and multiple resources that other agents do not use. I WILL PROVIDE YOU WITH PROOF OF ALL MY EFFORTS.
I am a full time agent and I my number one goal is to give you exceptional service ALWAYS.
