How To Defrost Your Windshield

If you don’t have a garage or the space to keep your car stored away from the winter conditions, you know how much of a pain it is to defrost your windshield on those frigid mornings. Sure, you can use an ice scraper to defrost your vehicle but you’ll likely end up with frozen or frost-bitten fingers and who wants to roll out of bed to exert unnecessary energy and time? Our Subaru of Morristown dealer serving the Parsippany area is here to fill you on in a little trick we’ve stumbled across over our years of research. 

Easily Defrost Your Windshield

While your vehicle’s defrost feature won’t only waste fuel, it’ll also take quite a while to yield significant results and could be the reason you are late to work. Luckily for you, Ken Weathers, a Knoxville, Tennessee, weatherman came up with a simple and cost-effective solution to defrost your vehicle in seconds that doesn’t require any tools or winter gloves. In his studies, Weathers discovered that household items such as isopropyl or rubbing alcohol and water can be mixed together to create a spray that will instantly clear the frost off your windshield. Here’s how it’s done:

Begin by mixing ⅓ part water and ⅔ part isopropyl or rubbing alcohol together into a spray bottle. The next step in the process is to simply spray the solution onto your windshield or windows and you’ll notice that the ice disappears instantly. You’ll now be ready to begin your commute without using any tedious defrosting tools or wasting precious fuel. 

We know the Parsippany area can get cold at times but with rubbing alcohol having a freezing point of 138 degrees below freezing, this windshield defrosting solution can be kept in your vehicle year-round and you won’t need to worry about it freezing up on you. This homemade mixture will also be effective on doors and door handles in the event that they are frozen shut. 

If you have any further questions about defrosting your windshield or would like to speak to a trained professional about our inventory, maintenance services, parts and accessories specials or more, please don’t hesitate to contact us at Subaru of Morristown near Parsippany today!

New Years Resolutions For Your Car

As this year and this decade come to an end, many of us are writing down our New Years Resolutions. Whether yours is to break a certain habit or to finally establish a regular gym routine, you are likely planning to start out in 2020 with high hopes and new expectations. 

If you’re looking for a productive and manageable way to put your best foot forward this New Year, you can also set resolutions to take care of your car! Learn more from our Mendham area Subaru dealer. 

Realistic Resolutions for Your Subaru

  1. Clean it out and Prep Your Emergency Kit — It’s never too early for some spring cleaning, and your Subaru is the perfect place to start. You spend a lot of time in your vehicle, and it is that much easier to get to and from without having to worry about clutter and crowding in your passenger seat and center console. This is also an opportune time to put your ice scraper, extra gloves, and other supplies in your trunk, just in case of an emergency in winter weather. Also, check to make sure your spare tire is in tow!
  2. Check Your Glove Compartment — Go through your glove compartment and make sure all of your docs are up to date. There is nothing worse than getting pulled over and having to shuffle through multiple registration and insurance cards to find the current one. Take a minute to clear it out now and save yourself the stress later on!
  3. Check Your Tires — Especially during the winter, it is vital that your Subaru’s tires have enough tread to make a complete stop. You can use the penny test to see if you are due for new tires. To do this, simply place Lincoln’s head down on the tire tread; if you can see all of the sixteenth president’s head, it’s time to replace your tires. You may also want to consider springing for winter tires, which can improve your stopping distance and traction when winter weather strikes the Mendham area. 
  4. Treat Yourself to a Detail — It is a new year, so why not make your Subaru feel like new? Spring for a detailing and have your car cleaned and polished from the outside in. Schedule service at Subaru of Morristown and allow our professionals to give your ride the royal treatment.
