    Default Car Preperation for this years winter advice needed

    Hi all,

    As we are about to descend into the dreaded winter, can anyone recommend me a decent non scratch Hand Held Glass Cleaning Squeegee Wiper please? I have used some in the past when scraping off ice and I have scratched the front screen glass.

    Also what safe device/method do you use to clear snow from your car without the paintwork being scratched.

    Cheers!

    I use one of these

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Windscreen-...ndscreen+cover

    I usually just take a skim off the top , not all the way down to the paint

    I never use them at all, as had too many mishaps over the years.Just give yourself extra time to get in the car, switch the engine on and put the screen blower on.While the coolant and oil circulates for a few minutes it will only take the same time for the ice on the windscreen to melt and you'll be on your way.As for taking snow off the car put some washing up rubber gloves on(might not look too good for your image) and gently remove the top layer first and then below be careful as there may be ice underneath but it doesn't usually scratch the paint below.
    Regards Fred.
