If you have to park your car outside during the winter, there’s a good chance you’ll have to deal with the ice that can accumulate on its glass in wet and frigid conditions.
To avoid the cold, unpleasant task of de-icing in the first place, you can prevent ice from accumulating on your windshield with a little prep work. The night before a freeze, spray your windshield with a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water and wipe it dry with a towel. If a little snow is expected, cover your windshield with a towel.
If an icing catches you by surprise and you’re greeted by an encrusted windshield in the morning, follow the dos and don’ts of the protocol above to make easy work of this chilly chore.
