Quick Fix: Prevent Car Doors From Freezing With Cooking Spray

When dealing with the frigid temperatures of winter, there's not much worse than coming out to your car to find the doors frozen shut. According to Adam Savage's Tested, car doors freeze because water gets into the rubber seal around the door and hardens. Fortunately, there is a simple trick that may help prevent that, using nothing but ordinary household cooking spray. 

Apply the spray to the door's rubber seal weekly during the coldest winter months, or as needed before expected icy, frigid storms, says Brian L. Gochenour, laser operations manager and sales engineer at Broadway Metal Works, a Broadway, Virginia-based metal fabricator. 

Step 1: Grab some cooking spray.

Any ordinary cooking spray should work.

Step 2: Spray your car door's rubber seal.

Open your car door, and look for the rubber seal all around its edge. Spray the rubber on the top, side, and bottom of the door with the cooking spray. 

Step 3: Wipe off any excess with a paper towel. 

Take a dry paper towel and gently rub the rubber seal to get rid of drips.
