“Brr, it’s cold outside!” This is what many people in Central Oregon are thinking this week as temperatures have been dropping into the teens at night, and it’s been cold in the mornings too, but although it’s cold now, it’s only going to get colder and there will be many mornings where the average driver who has Central Oregon Car Insurance will wake up in the morning to find ice on their vehicles windshield.
Getting Ready For Winter Ice
Step 1: Purchase a de-icing solution or make one yourself. You can make a de-icing solution by mixing vinegar and water into a spray bottle.
Step 2: Purchase a scrapper from your local store like Walmart and always keep it in your vehicle with your de-icing solution at all times.
Step 3 – Purchase new windshield wipers for your vehicle.
How to Properly De-Ice Your Windshield
Although you’ve been driving, and have had Central Oregon Car Insurance for a long time, you may not know how to properly de-ice a windshield.
The key to success with removing ice from a windshield is starting your vehicle up and letting your car or truck warm up on the inside first because, that warmth will make it easier for you to remove the ice from your windshield.
If you commute to work every morning you should give yourself an extra 20 minutes in the morning to de-ice your windshield by first warming up your vehicle, spraying the de-ice solution on your windshield, scraping away all ice and then using your windshield wipers to wipe away the final ice residue.
Parking Inside Pays Off
Did you know that you can lower your Central Oregon Car Insurance premium and make it easier for you to drive your vehicle during the winter by parking inside at night?
