A winter tip...

Good morning winter!

OMG, its so cold at the moment! Well, cold for me. I know that many readers of this blog would be used to even colder weather.  Recently, a friend of mine posted this on her Facebook status:

"Expecting frost overnight? Just fill a spray bottle with three parts vinegar to one part water and spray on your car windows at night. In the morning, they should be clear of the icy mess. How does it work? Vinegar contains acetic acid, which raises the melting point of water – preventing water from freezing. What to do if you wake up to an already frozen car? Just spray the mixture on your window and watch it melt."

Its such a good tip. I worked late a few days ago and found my car windows frozen when I came out at work.  With only a small water bottle with me, I trudged back into work to try and find vinegar....lucky I found one (we must use it for salad dressing) and the mixture worked!

I replaced the vinegar the next morning with a note to the owner telling them about the tip.

Do you have any winter tips? I'd love to hear them!
