A MAN who lives in one of the coldest countries in the world has revealed his golden tip for starting your car on a freezing morning.
Engines in Canada, where temperatures can drop to -40°C, are difficult to start in the winter months.
But one car enthusiast has posted a useful video to share his trick with other drivers – and it’s a device you can buy for just £1.
The nifty tool is cone-shaped, with one end wider than the other and plastic tips attached to the head.
After warming up his car for 10-15 minutes, he moves it in circles across his frozen windshield and the ice immediately comes off.
In a matter of seconds, the windshield is free of snow and ice so that he can continue driving unhindered.
In the video he tells drivers he has to pay around £8 for it, but on Amazon a pack of four costs around £5 – meaning you’ll pay a pound each.
One enthusiastic driver chimed in under his helpful TikTok tutorial: “I have two and love them!”
While someone else who lives in New York, where temperatures can also plummet this time of year, said they would “definitely order one.”
But one motorist, not convinced of the need to purchase a device specifically for this purpose, wrote: “Use a funnel.”
It’s not the only cheap and practical device you can use to travel safely.
A £2 arts and crafts kit for kids could even help fix the dents in your car in seconds.
And with another handy trick you can stop annoying rattling noises in your car for just £4.
Even better, the product is an everyday item that you most likely already have at home.
