Winter-proof your car!

Here are some tips I read from Womans World November edition.

Ice-proof your windows with vinegar!
Frost on it's way? Just fill a spray bottle with three parts vinegar to one part water and spritz it on all your car windows at night. In the morning, they'll be clear of icy mess! How does it work? Vinegar contains acetic acid, which raises the melting point of water-preventing water from freezing! Wake up to an already frozen car? Just spray the mixture on your windows and watch it melt!

Squeak-proof your wipers with rubbing alcohol!
Windshield wipers squeaking, or leaving streaks that make it hard to see? Wipe them with a cloth saturated with rubbing alcohol or ammonia. "These are solvents that can cut the buildup of grease and grime, the main culprit that prevents wipers from working properly," says Sinclair. "This one trick can make badly streaking wipers change to near perfect clarity!"
