Five Winter Hacks to Save You This Winter

13 Nov 2015, 6:29 pm

Winter can be downright brutal for some. With a few simple tricks, common household objects can make your life a bit more comfortable.

Nonstick Cooking Spray

Nonstick Cooking Spray is not just for the kitchen. Try spraying a light coat on your snow shovel, so it doesn’t gather accumulation.

Zip Ties

Tired of slipping and sliding on your bike? Try putting zipties on your tires for added traction. This also works great on a pair of old boots that have lost tread on their soles.


Once your socks have lost their appeal or are letting your little piggies peek out, cover your windshield wipers to prevent ice and snow from sticking to them when they are not in use. This also is a cool way to add some flair to your car when it is in the parking lot.

Zip Top Freezer Bags

After you have your healthy snack of carrots (or naughty chocolate chip cookies), save the bag to cover your sideview mirrors. This will prevent snow and ice from accumulating when you are parked.

Orange Peels
