5 Car Accessories for Winter Driving

Driver scrapes ice off a car windshield

Driving in wintertime has its drawbacks. No one likes sitting in a freezing car waiting for it to warm up, icy windshields, or touching an ice cold steering wheel. Luckily, there are car accessories for winter driving to help make each trip more pleasant.

Seat Covers

If you have leather or vinyl seats rather than cloth ones, the seats can get extremely cold, and the cold can get through layers of fabric and make your legs even colder. Cloth seat covers can alleviate this issue.

Hand Warmers

Hand warmers activate as soon as they make contact with the air, so they’re perfect for keeping in your car, opening up, and sticking in your gloves to keep your hands warm on your drive.

Heated Steering Wheel Cover

Get a heated steering wheel cover that plugs into your cigarette lighter or USB port, and you’ll have warm, toasty hands in seconds. This is a great alternative to hand warmers if you’d prefer a one-time purchase.

Heated Plug-in Blanket

Take it one step further and get a heated blanket that plugs into your USB port or other outlet. You need your hands and legs free to drive, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pull it across your lap or keep it close by to soak up some of the heat.

Windshield De-icer

Nothing is more frustrating than waiting for your car to warm up enough to melt away a thick layer of ice. A quick windshield de-icing spray can make the difference between being an hour late to work and being on time.
