GREENSBORO, N.C. - Even though the ice scraper can be an awesome arm workout no one wants to deal with that hassle. So there are some steps you can take to make dealing with icy weather much better! The best part: you can use stuff you probably already have in the house.

First let's tackle that windshield. You might have heard to put a towel or blanket over it to keep ice from freezing on top.But then you have a giant frozen towel to deal with. Just cut open a trash bag lay it down and put some rocks down at the top. And close it into your doors if possible.

Speaking of those doors -- keep them from sticking frozen over with ice by spraying some cooking oil.

And for those door looks, a thin coat of Vaseline can help keep the lock from freezing over. 

Finally, don't forget about your side mirrors. A ziploc bag over the mirror will do the trick. Just make sure they're sealed well. 

Less than two minutes of work now can save you a ton of frustration later.
