Put a beach towel over your windshield and close the doors to hold it in place. Then lift the wiper blades and put socks on them. In the morning instead of scraping, you uncover your windshield and wiper blades and you’re ready to go!
And don’t forget to bring a bag for stowing the snowy towel and frozen socks. You want to minimize your contact with these cold helpers!
One caveat: The beach towel isn’t foolproof. Freezing rain could freeze the towel right to your windshield, so watch the forecast.
For more tips, here’s an article suggesting the beach towel technique and other strategies in an interview on ABC27.com with a staff member at Safelite Auto Glass in York, PA.
