Keeping Side Mirrors Clear of Ice

If you have those big rearview mirrors on your car or truck and you know an ice storm is coming, here's a cheap trick to keep them clean. Take two plastic grocery bags (one for each mirror) and two rubber bands and put the bags around the mirrors and secure them with the rubber band. It does not look great but it sure helps in the morning when it comes to cleaning the ice off the car or truck cause those mirrors are free and clear of ice!

What a good idea. It sure beats trying to clean those mirrors early in the morning when you have to get to work.

To keep your side mirrors clear of ice and snow, just cover them with plastic grocery bags and tie the handles. In the morning, just remove and you have clean and clear mirrors.
