Hacks for easy ice-removal useful in winter weather

February 16, 2019 - 3:26 am

Nobody enjoys scraping an icy windshield in the morning before driving to work. That being said, there are a few hacks that can get you on the road faster and safer.  

Instead of using an ice scraper alone, mix water and rubbing alcohol in a 2:1 mixture to remove ice faster. Water and Vinegar, used in a 3:1 ratio can also help. To avoid damage to your windshield wipers lift them from the glass. 

Another suggestion is to place something on the windshield to prevent ice from getting through to the glass in the first place; things like a piece of plastic large enough to cover the entire windshield, tarp, or an old shower curtain.
