Winter Hacks To Keep The Home Nice and Warm During the Cold Season Page 17

Prevent Windows From Icing

You can always scrape the ice off your windows in the morning, but sometimes this can be time-consuming. Luckily, there is a pretty simple DIY solution for keeping ice off your windows in the first place. Some places sell special covers for keeping ice off windshields which you can just remove in the mornings. You can also use your own covers or plastic bags if you’re trying to cover your side mirrors. 

Either way, using a cover sure beats scrambling to scrape ice off your windshield first thing in the morning, especially if you happen to be running a bit late.

Use Calcium Chloride To Warm Up

It might sound like a dangerous chemical, but calcium chloride is actually a pretty safe way to keep your hands warm in winter. It’s also really easy when making a homemade hand warmer. All you need is some calcium chloride and bags. Just put the calcium chloride into a small bag, while also filling a larger bag with water. Put the small bag filled with calcium chloride into the larger bag and you a hand warmer.

Some people use simple zip lock bags, but you can use just about anything as long as it keeps the water from getting out. If you do use a zip lock bag, just remember to use something else that lets the water interact with the calcium chloride.
