IT’S been a balmy start to 2022 — but winter has returned.
The Met Office’s Andy Page said: “A cold northerly flow will bring a drop in temperature to most of the UK for the next few days.”
So snuggle down and prepare for the chill with our cheap, handy winter hacks.
Cook up some heat
Once you’ve finished cooking, turn the oven off and leave the door ajar so the heat fills the kitchen.
You’ve already paid for it, you might as well make use of it.
Hand gel comes in handy
We’re all used to carrying anti-bacterial hand gel around with us now, and it comes in useful for frozen locks, particularly on your car or a garden shed padlock.
Simply apply gel on to the key, insert into the lock and it will unfreeze it.
Potatoes for windscreens
If the temperature is set to fall below zero, chop a potato in half and smear the flesh over your car windscreen.
According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the sugar in potato prevents ice forming, then you can use windscreen washers to rinse it off in the morning.
The correct mix of screen wash should stop it freezing.
