What are some good (and safe) ways to get ice off a windshield in the cold morning?
Turn your wiper blades on while you spray the windshield with the water hose.
You could use all or any of the following:-
1. De-icer spray.
2. De-icer scraper.
3. Use a windshield cover (put on the night before frost is due).
4. Wind screen washer (if a strong enough mix).
5. Use old newspapers (put on the night before).
6. Use warm water out of the kettle (but not boiling as this could break your windscreen).
7. Start your engine and get your windscreen heater working.
the only thing i an tell you NOT to do is pour ht water on it, been there done that bought another windshield!
Dude, there's a product that you can buy that works wonders, it's called "Ice away," or something. That stuff really works. You can also pour room temp water on your windshield, provided that the room isn't too hot or too cold!
Warm, not hot! water on the windshield melts the ice, but the minute you start to drive, if it's cold enough it immediately freezes again.
Ice scraper with strong solution of windscreen wash
I would not recommend newspaper, it sticks and leaves awkward marks behind.
Leave it alone, go back inside, phone the office say you're going to be late, make another cup of coffee and wait for the thaw.
Keep a spray bottle with windshield de-icer in your car. Liberally spray your window before you scrape. If you can, let your car run for 3-4 minutes and turn the defrost to high to warm the inside.
