Calling all midwesterners! Once temperatures reach the negatives, your daily commute has probably been delayed, thanks to your frosted windshield. It's already a hassle getting out of bed when it's below freezing outside. Add scraping ice off in -12 degree weather, and you feel like your winter morning is already off to a bad start. Be proactive this winter with a car windshield cover.

Sure, if you're content with your ice scraper, that's fine. I bet you could sleep in longer without the chore of scraping ice and sleet off your windshield, though. Take the pressure off yourself and prevent an icy windshield. Most heavy-duty windshield covers won't cost you more than $30 to $40, so why not get one? Many of them can fit all kinds of vehicles, so finding the right size shouldn't be a huge issue.
