‘This baby clears inches of snow from my car in no time’: For just $20, you too can have a genius windshield broom

If you live where it snows, you know how unpleasant winter mornings can get. Getting up at the crack of dawn to shovel the walks is probably not at the top of your favorite ways to spend the day. Even less pleasant: clearing snow off your car — especially when you're in a hurry. This topselling gadget is about to change all that and quite possibly become your new best friend: Meet the Snow Joe LED 4-In-1 Telescoping Snow Broom and Ice Scraper, going for just $20 at Amazon.

This winter weather warrior has a panel to push snow off your car, a telescoping handle that extends from 33 to 52 inches so you can get to those hard-to-reach spots and even LED lights for those times you have to clear snow when it's dark.

A go-to winter tool for more than 8,000 five-star fans, this gadget is lightweight and easy to use — you can tackle two feet of snow and clear in one big swipe. On one end, it has a scraper and on the other end, instead of the standard snow brush to sweep snow off your windshield, it has a shovel-like panel. It's designed to let you push a pile of snow off the hood of your car the way a snow plow pushes snow to the side of the road. The non-abrasive foam pad won't damage your car's paint job either. The panel features a swivel head that adjusts to each push and pull, and it pops off for easy storage in the trunk or garage. At the end of the panel, it also has two LED lights that can light the way on those dark days of winter when you have to leave for work before the sun comes up.

As if this gadget couldn't get any better, it also has a telescoping handle. It extends from 33 to 52 inches. For people who aren't very tall, it lets them win the war on getting their SUVs clear of snow from headlights to taillights. But it can help tall people shave a little time off the shoveling clock for a crystal-clear view of the road.

This winter tool has the power to change the way you fight with snow and ice, as more than 8,000 happy shoppers can attest.

"So glad I got this, my friend recommended it to me and it really saved me so much time and made clearing snow off my car so much easier! A must have for Michigan winters!" shared a happy Midwesterner.

"Living in northern Wisconsin, I wish I had known of these sooner," lamented a grateful reviewer. "They work amazingly. I will never use a regular snowbrush again. These allow me to take a large amount of snow off in one stroke — and I can even reach my SUV roof with the telescoping handle! I also love the material it is made of; the foam does not get wet, so no more throwing a snow-wet brush in my car. I highly recommend it — bought one for myself and three for gifts."

"This is the best thing that I have ever tried, and I have tried a lot of different snow removal tools," wrote a five-star fan. "This has a soft foam texture that does not hurt your car at all, and I have a brand-new car so I am extremely careful with what I use. It can get so much snow at once, and I am short and I can reach everywhere on my SUV. A must-have for anyone who lives in the snow."

One end can clear snow with a simple swipe, while the scraper on the other breaks up ice on the windshield.
