CINCINNATI -- There are a lot of things you may have around the house that can help your car get through the cold weather. 

Logan Roberts, the manager at AAA Auto Wash on Central Parkway, shared some tips:

  • Buy windshield wiper fluid that doesn't freeze and is streak-free. That can help melt ice and snow on the windshield.
  • You can put Vaseline or other petroleum jelly on the gasket around the doors and on locks to help prevent them from freezing.
  • If you're stuck in the snow, kitty litter under your tires can help you get traction. 
  • Spray alcohol on a towel and use it to clean the grime off windshield wipers.
