Do-It-Yourself Windshield De-Icer

The Winter months is upon us and if you are like me the last thing I need to deal with first thing in the morning while trying to get to work, when I’m already running late, is a Iced Over Windshield.  So here’s an easy to make do-it yourself solution with 3 items I bet you already have at home; 1 Cup Rubbing Alcohol, 1/2 cup of Water and Spray Bottle.

Step 1- Pour the water and rubbing alcohol into the spray bottle.  Plain distilled vinegar is an acceptable substitute if you do not have rubbing alcohol.

Step 2- Attach the lid to the spray bottle and close it tightly

Step 3- Shake the spray bottle vigorously to mix the water and rubbing alcohol.

Step 4- Spray the de-icer on your icy or frosted windshield and wait 1 min or so for the ice to melt.

Note:

  • You can store in the trunk of your car
  • This DIY de-icer will also help with frozen door locks and garage doors that are iced shut
  • If you use the defrost setting on your car while you are spraying the de-icer, the windows will be less likely to fog up once you start driving.
  • Do NOT use HOT water, this could crack or break your windshield.
