Here are a few quick ways to de-ice your car so you can get going without letting your car run for long periods of time.
We are currently under all sorts of winter storm and frigid temperature warnings in my state of Kansas. This happens to us at least a couple of times a year and it’s never any fun.
I wanted to share the few ways that I de-ice my car when I’m in a pickle.
1) DIY Ice Remover
This is a tried and true method that lots of people swear by. Simple make a solution of two parts isopropyl alcohol with one part water and a couple of drops of dish soap. Shake and spray on your windshield and the ice will loosen and make it easy to scrape off.
2) Snow Joe Ice Dozer
The Ice Dozer is widely considered the BEST and most effective ice scraper and it’s just $6.98 on Amazon.
“The ice dozer provides a full 360º of ice-decimating technology in one, compact, handheld tool. It also has a wiper notch designed to clean wiper blades of icy build-up in a single swipe.”
3) Keep a bottle of Melt It! inside
Grab some Melt It! on Amazon and keep it in your linen closet for this very reason. It removes thick ice in seconds.
4) Warm Water
In a pickle when you have no other options, you can safely use some lukewarm water. Just run some warm water in a bowl or bucket and slowly pour it over the parts that are covered in ice. It is important to not use hot or boiling as you can cause cracks and breaks in glass.
