Someone I worked with a while back introduced me to a helpful trick for clearing frosted windows that has stuck with me ever since. It's equally effective as it is uncomplicated.
No one I know enjoys having to use a scraper, or worse a credit card, to get that icy opacity off their car's glass. It's particularly annoying right now as there is no snowfall. Instead of just brushing in order to safely drive, we need to scrape... or do we?
While scraping is totally viable, I'm here to inform you that there is an easier way! It's all in a little thing known as alcohol. I'm not talking about that can of Twisted Tea that's been rolling around in your trunk since summertime, but rather, rubbing alcohol! The 91% is the good stuff, but any isopropyl type will do just fine. From there, you simply put the rubbing alcohol on the glass.
The best way to do this is via a spray bottle. Whether you safely reuse one from another mixture or pick one up at the dollar store on the cheap, they're easy to come by. Just fill it up and keep it with your scraper. A couple spritzes on the windows and maybe a quick wipe, and you're on your way! It's also great for unfreezing doors or door locks, especially if your car is like mine without a remote fob.
Alcohol and glass generally get along well, but especially if you have any type of stickers or tint, do be careful. Hopefully this helps you out this winter, and thanks for reading!
