When you awake to this is the morning, the last thing you want to do is stand in the freezing cold, scraping ice and frost off your windshield so you can head off to work or school. Here’s a simple, effective way to defrost your windshield fast with no effort.
Shy of keeping it in the garage, there’s really very little a person can do to avoid this on a cold winter morning:


BUT, you don’t have to put up with it for very long with this quick and easy do it yourself windshield defrost remedy.

Watch here:

You will need:
a Spray Bottle (the dollar store has them for $1)
1 bottle rubbing alcohol

Use 2/3 part Alcohol to 1/3 part water. For example, if you want 3 cups of solution use 2 cups of alcohol and 1 cup of water.

Mix them together, add to a spray bottle and spray the frosted windshield liberally. The mix can be left in the vehicle, it will not freeze.

NEVER use HOT or Warm water on a frosted windshield, it WILL CRACK and you’ll need to replace it.

If you know that there will be inclement weather overnight (snow or freezing rain) liberally spray the windshield prior to the inclement weather, it will be that much easier to clean the next morning.

  1. This is a really great idea, I like the idea of watering it down slightly so it doesn’t affect the paint on the car over the course of the winter. Thanks Budget101!
