Here are some tips.

Turn on the engine

Make sure you stay with the vehicle if the engine is running.

Check your wipers

Make sure that the wipers are not turned on before turning on the vehicle.

Instead, make sure the wipers can move freely by removing rocks from the windshield and around the wiper base.

Use a lint-free absorbent cloth if necessary, or turn on the car’s air conditioning if possible.

This will remove moisture from the air to prevent fogging on the car.

Wipe away the snow

Use a broom to sweep all the snow off the car.

A soft brush is great for cleaning the front grille, keeping the engine from overheating.

Shave while you wait

Use a scraper and descaler on the outside of the car while waiting for the inside to warm up.

Focus on windows and mirrors, and make sure all headlights are clean and working.

To make your own de-icing solution, you can mix three parts distilled vinegar and one part water and pour the mixture into a spray bottle.

Shake the bottle, then can spray on the windshield. Leave for about five minutes before scraping the ice.
