In a hurry to be in time at your work? The last thing you want to see is frost on the windows of your car. Do not drive with ice on your windshield, this can be unsafe and harm not only yourself but maybe also other people. Here are some easy tricks how to de-ice your windshields the fastest and safest way.
1. Use water
Water is warmer than ice and will melt it fast. Now you might be thinking; 'when I use heated water this will melt the ice faster'. You are right but the risk of cracking glass is very high. Use lukewarm water instead. Lukewarm water will melt the ice fast and won't crack you glass. So when you have taken a shower in the morning, fill a bucket of lukewarm water and throw it over the windows of your car. That should do the job.
2. Use a De-Icer
If you already own one, just use the De-Icer to melt the ice on your windshield. A De-Icer is available at most of the auto-shops or gas stations and can be very handful in the winter. If you don't have a De-Icer and you want to save some money, it is very easy to make your own De-Icer. Just take some rubbing alcohol and pour it in to a dry spray bottle. After that you just have to add some drops of dish soap, invert several timer to mix and there is your homemade De-Icer.
3. Use your Credit Card
The first thing you need to do is to turn your defroster on. When you don't have scraping tools available and you don't know what to do, you still have your Credit Card that will work perfectly. After your defroster is working a while the ice on the windshield will be softer and is easier to scrape. Your Credit Card is good tool to De-Ice your windshield when no other tools or De-Icers are available.
The best way to clean your windshield for snow and ice is when you don't have to clean at all. With some good preparations you can avoid icing on your windshield and frustrations in the morning. Place a towel, piece of cardboard or a folded sheet over your windshield. Attach them to your windshield wipers to hold them in place when the wind is blowing. Result; a morning without minutes of De-Icing methods and late arrivals at work.
