Winter is here for some of us, and along with the cold comes having to scrape the car windows
every morning. That is a serious pain for me, considering I am height challenged. I have a difficult time reaching the center of the windshield.
Surfing the net looking for de-icing solutions, I came across some reader tips on The Dollar Stretcher
was looking for some remedies for a homemade window ice removal formula, and just happened to pose the question on stretcher.com
. She received some helpful answers.
says to place 3 parts vinegar and one part water in a spray bottle, spray the windshield and all the windows and mirrors before you go to bed at night, and in the morning you should have ice free windows. You can also use rubbing alcohol if you don't have any vinegar
says to use two parts rubbing alcohol
to one part water, and you should have no more ice.
says to place a lightweight tarp or an old sheet over your car, and any ice buildup should quickly melt away. Sometimes this doesn't work though, because where I live, we get too much snow for lil ole me to just pull off the tarp with all the snow on it.
says to mix rubbing alcohol and a few drops of dish liquid. Spray the windshield and in a few minutes, the ice will lift right off. Makes scraping much easier.
I will be sure to try these remedies the next time we are scheduled for a storm. What is your formula for removing ice and snow from your vehicle?
