We’ve all been there when you’re in a rush, sprint out the house and run out to your car to find it frozen over, complete with icicles on the wing mirror.
Depending what tools you are equipped with, the task could take you a while and leave you with wet sleeves, frozen fingers, and a foul mood.
Well this weatherman from Tennessee’s WATE 6 News has just solved all your problems with a magic solution that you can make from some ingredients you’ll have at home.
So if you’re not forward-thinking enough to carry a bottle of that spray de-icer, then listen to the wise words of Ken Weathers for his special solution.
He explains that all you need is some water and rubbing alcohol to take all your icy worries away…
If you left your car outside it probably looks like this. Some scattered frost on the windshield.
Two ways you usually get rid of this one. 1) you warm up the car for a long period of time, keep the defroster on and that will heat the window up, but that kind of wasted gas didn’t it.
The other, good old ice scraper. Takes time but it’ll eventually do it.
Here’s a better way. Simple solution. All you do is spray and the frost is gone. Now, it’s not water. You don’t add hot water to a windshield – it can break it. But just the simple spray of solution on the windshield will make that de-icing a lot quicker.
So there it is…2/3 parts Isopropyl/Rubbing alcohol and 1/3 parts water mixed together in a spray bottle.
Kenny’s special liquid gets rid of that ice like magic.
