Have you ever found yourself in an icy situation without an ice scraper handy? This month, our team of ASE-Certified technicians is taking a break from auto repair tips to bring you some ice scraper life hacks.
The winter months in Wasilla, AK can be a torture, and having an ice scraper is a must-have accessory for your vehicle. Snowfall and freezing temperatures bombard your windshield, diminishing your visibility with ice but, after a few scrapes, you’re ready for the road.
We have all had moments where we realize that we forgot something once it’s too late. Whether yours broke, you forgot to buy one, or you lent it to a friend, facing an ice covered windshield without a scraper is enough reason to get back in bed and call it a day.
If you find your car covered in snow or ice and you don’t have an ice scraper readily available, try these tricks to clear your windshield and mirrors:
Plastic card- Often times, a thin layer of ice can easily be removed with a plastic card from your wallet or purse. Hold onto a used gift card, and you’ll have an ice scraper on you at all times. Don’t use valuable credit cards or IDs though since the ice may cause damage to the card.
Spatula- If you have any extra spatulas in your kitchen, you already have have a backup ice scraper. A stiff plastic one should do the trick.
CDs-Do you still listen to that summer mix you made 15 years ago? If so, put the music on your computer and use the CD to clear your windshield! This method works best for a thick layer of ice.
Get creative! Desperate times call for desperate measures. From hard plastic cups to hangers, or pretty much anything with a thin plastic edge, it’s easy to find a makeshift ice scraper.
The moral of the story is to be prepared this winter. Having the needed winter accessories for your vehicle will help keep you on schedule, avoid unnecessary auto repairs, and keep you and your family safely on the road when the frost and ice try to slow you down. A quick stop to our shop for a winter inspection will also help you avoid any untimely breakdowns that the harsh winter weather may cause.

Finding a talented, trustworthy Wasilla mechanic isn’t as hard as you think. You’ve probably heard the term ASE before and have seen the blue ASE logo in our shop’s window, but do you know what it stands for? Our team at Fish Hook Tire & Auto would like to teach you why you should only let an ASE-Certified mechanic work on your vehicle.
To get your car a thorough repair the first time, you need to take it to a trustworthy facility, like Fish Hook Tire & Auto , that employs top-notch technicians who have the drive and experience to get the job done quickly and professionally.
ASE stands for Automotive Service Excellence Program. It was established in 1972 in an effort to improve the auto industry with better technicians and more ethical practices. This not only benefited the auto facilities but their customers as well.
When technicians are ASE-Certified, they have passed the rigorous testing standards set forth by the program. Getting the certification is no cakewalk—in fact, these tests are constantly changing in order to stay current with the technology in cars today!
When and if a technician passes the test, they’re not certified for life. The test must be retaken every 5 years so technicians can retain their ASE credentials. These mechanics must also have a minimum 2 years of experience working at an auto shop.
That’s why you should always look for the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence on a shop’s window.
This benefits the shop and the customer. Customers have peace of mind knowing some of the best in the business are working on their vehicle, and the shop benefits from employing some of the most knowledgeable technicians who are capable of any Jeep repair or RV repair in Colorado Springs.
