Carefree Car Ownership
Keep your visibility intact this winter
One of the most essential car maintenance tips to take care of this winter is keeping your visibility as perfect as possible. This means winterizing your washer fluid, windshield and wipes to ensure that your vision isn't blurred by ice and snow.
You should start by swapping your regular windshield washer fluid for a winterized version, which is more concentrated, recommends AutoGeek.net. This will keep your fluid from freezing so that you always have it on hand when you need to get rid of dirt and grime. (Road salt is especially tough to wipe off windshields.)
You may also want to invest in a de-icing spray. You should always have an ice-scraper on hand to get rid of frozen water on your windshield, but a spray can make the process a lot easier and faster.
Finally, ensure that your windshield wipers are treated with a rubber lubricant, which you can find at auto shops. This will help stop skipping and streaking and prevent any snow or ice from sticking to your wipers.
