DeFrosting Car Windows

Use a de-icer – perhaps the easiest thing you can do is to purchase a commercial de-icer. These specially formulated de-icing fluids are largely available throughout the winter, and they do a decent job at removing accumulated ice on your car windows. But you can also make your solution, as it is not that hard. You just need to use rubbing alcohol and a few drops of dish soap. Use a spray bottle and invert several times to mix the solution well. Spray it on the frosted parts of the window and wait. It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes for the solution to work. Finally, use a scraper to remove the softened ice. If any areas are giving you trouble, apply more de-icer.

Use a credit card – if you lack a de-icer, you can resort to more basic methods that involve tools at hand. A credit card naturally comes as a suitable solution, because of its shape. However, don’t expect miracles and try to aid yourself as much as possible by starting your car and turning the defroster. Leave it running and get to work. Grab a credit card you know it’s safe to use and isn’t laminated. Hold the long edge of the card against some angle and push the ice firmly. Try not to bend the card. What you can also do is stack a few more cards to double the scraping strength. Once enough ice has been removed, use the wipers to clear away the mush.

Use hand warmers or warmed ice packets – get a microwave-safe bag and warm rice for 30 seconds. Get the rice to your car and press it on the inside of the frosted window. The warming effect will quickly melt the ice. The main advantage of this method is that it warms up the glass so that it doesn’t freeze as you drive. It also warms up the interior or your car nicely. However, do keep in mind that keeping a warmer in one place for too long can stress the glass. Keep it only for as long as needed to melt the ice a little bit and finish off with the wipers.
