When the snow hits, there's not a lot you can do about it, but you can get prepared when it comes to clearing off your car.

FOX8's Tom Britt has some odd, but useful ice hacks that can get your car de-iced quickly.

If you don't have a windshield scraper and they are all sold out at the store, you can still scrape off your windshield. Tom suggests using a credit card or a plastic spatula.

If your car door is locked and you can't get your key in to unlock it, you can use hand sanitizer or WD-40.

Tom also said shaving cream can be used as a de-fogger for your windshield.
