Here's Some Helpful Tips For You "unseasonened" Southerners....Just in Case It Gets Below Freezing!

by Jerry Pasman, Automitive Express Centre, Red Deer Alberta.

Here are some helpful hints that could make your winters easier to deal with ...

Keep your Headlights clear with Car Wax!
Just wipe ordinary Car Wax on
your headlights. It contains special water repellents that will prevent that messy mixture from accumulating on your lights - lasts 6 weeks.

Squeak-proof your Wipers with Rubbing Alcohol!
Wipe the wipers with a cloth saturated with rubbing alcohol or Ammonia.
This one trick can make badly streaking & squeaking wipers change to near
perfect silence & clarity.

Ice-proof your Windows with Vinegar!
Frost on it's way? Just fill a spray bottle with three parts Vinegar to
one part water & spritz it on all your windows at night. In the morning, they'll be clear of icy mess. Vinegar contains acetic acid, which raises the melting point of
water---preventing water from freezing!

Prevent Car Doors from freezing shut with cooking spray!

Spritz cooking oil on the rubber seals around car doors & rub it in with a
paper towel. The cooking spray prevents water from melting into the rubber.

Fog-proof your Windshield with shaving cream!
Spray some shaving cream on the inside of your windshield & wipe if off
with paper towels. Shaving cream has many of the same ingredients found in commercial defoggers.

De-ice your lock in seconds with hand sanitizer!
Just put some hand Sanitizer gel on the key & the lock & the problems solved!

Take good care of your BMW, Mercedes or any vehicle in this unseasonably cold weather! Visit Metric Wrench Billings today for all of your car needs!
