Winters in Iowa can be brutal, especially when it comes to driving! It seems like you spend a lot more time in your car because of how yucky the roads are! Seriously, between the ice and the never ending snow, the roads are just not fun to navigate and I end up spending double the amount of time in my car.
I always try to prepare myself and my car for the winters. My car usually gets a good cleaning and freshening to make it more pleasant to spend all that extra time in and I also make sure that I have a few essentials in the car, just in case!
Preparing Your Car for Winter
The first thing I do is clean out the car completely, vacuum it out, wash the windows, everything! I also add my favorite PERK air freshener to the car! That way the car smells amazing too!
PERK Vent Wrap is a breakthrough in vent air fresheners. It offers a design that is so discreet it is invisibly fresh! PERK Vent Wrap is the first air freshener to offer our patent-pending StediScent™ technology, which delivers consistent, high-quality fragrance. Each PERK Vent Wrap lasts about 15 days, so a 4-pack offers up to 60 days of your favorite fragrance and no one even knows it’s there!
Plus, the vent wrap is significantly more discreet than other vent air fresheners! It simply wraps around your vent and it works if the vent is on or off.
Winter Essentials for Your Car
Extra Hats, Gloves and even a blanket – you just never know when you might get stranded in the heavy snow or ice. Be sure to have everything you need to keep you warm or worse have to get out in a blizzard.
Snacks – Make sure you have a supply of snacks to eat too – this is something I always have in the car just in case, not just during the winter months.
Ice Scraper – This is a necessity!! You can’t get anywhere if you can’t don’t remove the ice from your windows
Shovel – Trust me! You may need this! I have had to dig myself out of deep snow before and having a shovel would have really helped!
