Car doors can freeze shut when the weather gets cold enough to freeze water outside. This is because the water that getting into the cracks of the door will penetrate the black rubber seal.

When the temperature drops and freezes the water it causes it to freeze making the black rubber seal stick to the body of the car.

If you follow the instructions below you will be able to form a protective layer over the black rubber seal and help prevent the water from sticking to the seal and ultimately freezing the door shut.

Things you will need:

Cooking spray

paper towel

Step 1:

To keep car doors from freezing shut you will need to start by locating the black rubber seal on the inside of the car door. Cars use this seal to keep water, wind, and other things out of your car.

Once you have located the seal you will need to spray a light coating of cooking spray, the non-stick stuff to the seal. Take your time and use care not to get it all over your car since it could stain leather seats, it will just rub off most surfaces.

Step 3

After you have sprayed a light layer of cooking spray you will need to use a paper towel and gently rub the spray into the black rubber seal. Make sure to get the cooking spray all over the black rubber seal for best results.

Step 4

Now you will need to repeat this process on the other doors to keep car doors from freezing shut.
