We've been in a deep freeze up north. Thankfully, we haven't gotten the same amount of snow as our neighbors in New England but it's been pretty darn cold. While browsing Pinterest, I came across a link to some winter hacks on Buzzfeed. I'm more than glad to jump on any tips to help conquer the frozen tundra outside.
This one specifically caught my attention:
"You can also use a stocking or sock filled with cat litter to prevent frost."
Prevent frost? Considering my hubby isn't a morning person I thought this tip would be invaluable for him. This trick could easily save him a couple minutes each morning and every minute counts when you're already late and leaving during rush hour.
Let the experiment begin!
According to the site, all you need is a sock and cat litter. I think a funnel is pretty helpful as well.
Simply slip the funnel into a tube sock (no holes, please!), and pour the litter in until the foot section is completely full. I tied mine off with a knot but you could sew it shut as well. Place the filled sock on your dash and wait until morning.
I stuck the sock on my dash and waited until morning to check on my car. NOTHING HAPPENED. Well, something happened. Something being frost. Lots of frost.
Supposedly the sock will absorb the moisture in the air and stave off frost. Hmm. Well, considering that frost is on the OUTSIDE of the window, I should have thought this through. My conclusion, a kitty litter sock does not prevent frosted windows. This hack is a big fat hoax. Maybe it'd prevent foggy windows but I'm not going to wait and see.
