Filomena It has left roads impassable, sidewalks covered in snow and cars practically buried. If your vehicle is one of those that has slept on the street in the last days, you should follow these tips.
First of all removes snow from both windows and roof and hood to prevent it from becoming an immovable ice sheet. In this way, it will be easier for you to leave the car ready for the next few days.
Once the snow has cleared, it is very likely that the windows of the car will wake up full of ice, since it is expected that the temperature drops considerably in the coming days.
It is very important that, if you find the moons frozen, do not pour water over them, neither hot nor cold, since it is very likely that the crystals will crack due to the change in temperature. Also, do not wipe with a wet or damp cloth, as it will instantly freeze the water and make it difficult to see. Do not add salt, because the salt does not defrost, or activate the windshield wipers.
The best option is to clean the windows with a plastic scraper.. There are even those that radiate heat if you plug them into the car’s cigarette lighter, so they can make the task easier. If you don’t have one, you can also use a card that you don’t mind getting damaged a bit or a car CD. You can also add antifreeze liquid or alcohol (the latter if there is not a significant layer of ice).
Finally, once inside and with the windows conditioned on the outside, it is very likely that they will fog up on the inside. To solve this problem, it is best to turn on the heating. Of course, very abrupt temperature changes do not occur to prevent the windows from damaging.
