Winter Emergency Car Kit Checklist

Temperatures are beginning to drop and that means winter weather can’t be far behind. And while everybody loves a good snow day, we don’t love it when we’re on the road. But if you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready, so use this handy checklist to winterize your car’s emergency kit. 


Warm Clothes and Blankets 
Trust us, putting on snow chains in a cocktail dress is no fun, so keep a change of warm clothes in your car just in case. While you’re at it, throw a blanketglovessocks and an extra jacket in the trunk. Hopefully you’ll never need them, but if you do, you’ll be glad you planned ahead. 

Food and Water 
Being stranded is bad. Being stranded while you’re hangry is the worst. Stock your kit with a few non-perishable food items like Clover Valley trail mix or granola bars. And don’t forget a small case of Clover Valley bottled water while you’re at it.


First-Aid Kit 
It seems like someone is always scraping a knee or getting a blister, so a first-aid kit is a year-round must. The Rexall First-Aid Kit is a great choice. It’s got various sizes of bandages, antiseptic towelettes, sterile pads and antibiotic ointment all ready to go in a travel case, so all you have to do is stow and go. 

Flashlight and Batteries 
Hopefully this will never happen, but in case you get stranded at night, always keep a flashlight and spare set of batteries in your car. Sure, we all have flashlights on our phones, but you want to save your battery for better things. Like playing Candy Crush(r).

Cat Litter
We know what you're thinking  – why in the world do I need cat litter? But here’s a pro tip: If you get stuck in the snow, sprinkling cat litter behind your tires can help create traction. Just toss a bag of Forever Pals Cat litter in your trunk and you’ll be on your way in no time.
