Is your car stuck in the snow?
Are your wheels spinning and you can’t move them?
No need to call a tow truck which will cost you a fortune!
There is a simple trick to preventing your wheels from spinning.
The trick is to put sand directly under the spinning tires. Look :
How to do
1. Pour the sand as close as possible to the spinning wheel.
2. Also pour some in front of the wheel so you can roll over it when starting.
3. Get in the car and drive off.
4. Shift into first gear.
5. Gently squeeze the accelerator so the wheels can grip the sand.
And there you have it, thanks to the sand, you have unlocked your car from the snow 🙂
You don’t even have to call a tow truck! It’s still more economical, right?
Now you know what to do next time this happens to you.
Don’t have sand on hand? You can find some here.
Know that this trick also works with wood ash.
Why does it work?
Conventional tires have no grip on snow and frost. This is where the sand comes in!
Thanks to its millions of small grains, the sand will allow the tire to regain traction on the ground.
In any case, remember that you must avoid pressing hard on the accelerator at the risk of ejecting the sand!
