Just a handy tip in this Freezing weather

Post by Guest »

I don't like using deicer and having Raynaurds my hands get frozen scraping the ice off.

Also pouring hot water will either crack or weaken the windscreen.

My friend said get a small zip lock bag fill with warm water seal it and just wipe your windows with it. Defrosted in minutes and works great.

Have been using warm water for years on my windows, no.problem and then I start the engine and use the wipers.

Yep, I've done that before and it works well.

For those saying the window froze again straight away, just use a shower squeegee on each window as you go - problem solved!

Watched a young neighbour of mine do this very thing this morning. Very successful.

Use a hot water bottle. Then keep the hottie bottle in the car to keep you warm on the way to work or to warm the kids on the school run.

Years ago as a night worker. I would bring a blow heater with me plus extension lead plug in for 1hour before my shift ended at 8am.

I used lukewarm water no problem, only thing the excess water goes onto the drive forming a ice skating ring for my husband.

I’ve got Reynards and just use a bucket of Luke warm water, whilst wearing my gloves. Job done all over.

Keep your sun visors down when defrosting the windscreen the hot it goes up and has nowhere to go this helping to clear it faster.

Keep your second key handy. Start the car, set the heater on the window, lock it with the second key and go back into the warm for 10 minutes.
