Help prevent your windshield wipers from freezing to your car windshield with this tip from BobVila.com. (It may look silly, but it works!) Use this quick fix the night before a snowstorm, or whenever the weatherman predicts a deep freeze.

Step 1: Pull your windshield wipers into the upright position.

Step 2: Grab two old socks (if it’s a particularly windy day, try to find long socks), and put one over each wiper.

Step 3: Leave the wipers upright until you need to use the car. (Don’t forget to remove the socks before you hit the road!)
