Salt and shaving cream are two items you may already have in your home, and they can help make winter driving a lot safer. At least according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which is filled with sorts of practical advice. These two common household items, says the Almanac, can keep your windshield clear of snow, ice, and fog!

Here’s how:

  • Dampen a small cloth bag of iodized salt and rub it on the outside of your windshield to keep snow and ice from sticking.
  • Spray the inside of your windshield and your mirrors with shaving cream, then wipe off with paper towels, to keep them fog-free.

Got the Flu?

It’s likely you already know the basics of winter driving: drive slower, increase the distance between your car and the car ahead of you, and steer into skids. But the Almanac adds another important tip to keep you safe and sound: If you have the flu, don’t drive. The flu is documented to significantly slow reaction time even more than if you had a few beers.

In short? Get out the salt and shaving cream to winter-proof your windshield both inside and out. But if you’ve got the flu, stay home. Your life and the lives of others, depends upon it.
