Cold Weather Tips for Winter Survival

Cold Weather Tips for Winter Survival

Skiers and snow mobile fans love winter – so do ski resort, oil delivery, and snow removal business owners. As for the rest of us?  A mixed bag, at best.

On the plus side are sledding, snow angels, and ice skating. Some of the downers include dry skin, icy windshields, and slippery sidewalks, – not to mention spin-outs, ice dams, and frozen pipes. Yet, with a little planning and preventive maintenance you can stay warm, comfortable, and safe all winter long.

Try these survival tips for making the winter months a little easier to bare.

On the Road
  • When your car is parked, put the windshield wipers facing up and cover them with an old pair of socks to help prevent freezing.
  • Keep a container of sand, snow melt, or a bag of kitty litter in your trunk for traction should you get stuck in the snow. In a pinch, your car’s floor mats can work, too.
  • Spray your car windows with a mixture of 3 parts distilled vinegar and 1 part water to keep them from freezing over.
  • Are your tires winter-ready? Use a penny to check – if Lincoln’s head shows above the tread, it’s time for new tires.
Warm and Toasty
  • Fill a heat-safe water bottle with hot water and slip it under your bed covers before retiring for the night.
  • Sew white rice into a fleece pouch and pop it into the microwave for 30 seconds. Place it inside your coat pockets to keep your hands nice and warm.
  • Keep your feet warm by adding wool insoles to your shoes or boots.
  • Run ceiling fans in reverse. This will push warm air down towards the center of the room where you need it most, which means you can turn your thermostat down a couple a degrees and save on heating costs.
Get Personal
  • Help prevent dry winter skin by keeping your shower “short and sweet,” don’t towel off completely, and apply a moisturizing body lotion to damp skin.
  • Wash your face with a gentle cleanser or oil instead of harsh astringents that can make skin dry and itchy.
  • Warm up eyeliner or mascara in your hands for 30 to 60 seconds to ensure a smooth application.
  • Winter hair can look dull and flat, so give it a little help by applying a root-lifting spray before styling. Also, you can banish hat hair with a spray of dry shampoo.

Another cure for the winter blues is a house that’s warm and toasty. Well, the best way to enjoy that feeling is with an annual heating system cleaning and inspection.
