9. Ice scraper and snow brush
As soon as the cold weather hits, you should make sure that you have an ice scraper and snow brush in your car. Even if it doesn’t snow, sometimes precipitation can freeze on your car and create a layer of ice in the cold weather. In those cases, you want to have an ice scraper because relying on your windshield wipers can shorten their lifespan and tear them up. When cleaning off your car, clear the entire car of snow and ice to prevent any accidents for you or others on the road.
