What to Keep in Your Car for Cold Weather

17 January 2022

Monnick Supply - Winter Essentials

Whether you’re commuting to work or taking a long road trip, it’s best to prepare for when plans go awry. That’s why you need to keep several things in your car in case something goes wrong during your travels. Seasonal weather is also a factor concerning what to keep in your vehicle, revisit the items you carry with you and re-stock as necessary.

Ice scraper and snow brush

When the snow flies, you’ll want to have an ice scraper and a snow brush inside of your vehicle. If the weather calls for freezing rain, it’s a good idea to remove the ice scraper and keep it in your home because you might need to chisel your way into your car after the storm.

Blanket, gloves, and hat

Breakdowns in the winter pose a severe threat to your health. You’ll need to be prepared to keep yourself and your passengers warm in the absence of the car’s heater. Blankets, gloves, and hats are a must for people living in cold-weather climates.

Kitty litter

To help your tires get traction, kitty litter is useful. You don’t want to carry an entire bag of it, which takes up space and adds significant weight. A quarter of a bag should be enough to assist you in slippery situations.

Washer fluid

When driving in winter weather, your windshield gets filthy, and fast. If you run out of washer jet fluid, you could suffer significant visibility problems as a result. In winter, carry washer fluid in your vehicle to avoid this problem. Do not use water, which could freeze and damage your washer system.

You can pick all of this up at Monnick Supply in Marlborough and Framingham, MA.
