Nothing a little windshield wiper fluid can’t fix! You go to utilize this tool, but your windshield wipers won’t move. They froze to the windshield overnight! To keep this annoyance from happening to you, we have a surprisingly simple solution:

Weather Hacks

Step One: Pull your windshield wipers in the upright position.

Step Two: Grab a pair of old socks and slide one over each wiper blade.

Step Three: Leave the wipers upright and the socks on until you’re ready to hit the road.

Don’t forget to remove the socks before you head on your way!
