Items to Keep in Your Car during the Winter (Part 2)Let us continue with the list of items you might need and should have in your vehicle’s trunk throughout the winter months.
1.Blankets, winter clothes, gloves – Having clothes to protect you from the cold is important if you need to leave the vehicle for any reason. A blanket or blankets could be helpful in a situation where you are stuck and you can’t get the heat on for whatever reason.
2.Emergency flares or reflectors – Another handy thing to have in case your vehicle breaks down. These items will make your car more visible from the road and in snowstorms.
3.Windshield washer fluid – Visibility on the road is always important, so take with you some extra windshield washer fluid, preferably one that is with antifreeze components, since it is more suitable for the winter.
4.Jumper cables – Battery charge can drop due to cold weather so you should carry jumper cables in your car just in case. It is easier for someone to help you out if you have them with you, you can't count that someone would be willing to help you and have jumper cables with them.
5.Cell phone charger – You might be the kind of person that doesn’t leave the house without a full battery on your phone but anything could happen so you should have a cell phone charger with you.
6.Chain – You never know what might happen so have a tow chain or a rope with you, so that you are prepared for anything.
Take care of things before the cold sets in - winterize your vehicle at an auto repair center, and carry everything necessary to get out of a sticky situation, and you will have a great winter without worries.
