Clearing Snow From Your Car

The scenario when you begin clearing snow from your car:

You just got up to go to work and your car has 50mm of snow all over it. You get your warm clothes on and rush outside to begin clearing snow from your car. What do you use?

  • Hands. “Oh! That’s so cold.”
  • Hands with gloves on. “Oh! They’re so wet and cold – the gloves are ruined and I still haven’t moved much snow.”
  • A piece of cardboard. “Oh! The snow has melted and soaked into it and now it’s disintegrating.”
  • A Soft-bristled Hand Brush. “Oh! That’s great. It’s moving large amounts of snow very easily and is resistant to the wet. The bristles are so soft they aren’t damaging my car’s paintwork. I’ll soon have it all swept off and my hands are staying relatively warm and dry.”

Soft-bristled Hand Brushes – Available from hardware stores. Example.

Don’t forget to carry one with you.

NOTE: Some hand brushes are sold as ‘Banister Brushes’. Some may have soft bristles but others have stiff bristles. A soft flexible bristle is required to prevent the paintwork getting scratched.
