We’re Icelanders and these are our tips for an ice-free windscreen in winter – what works for us will work for you
ICELANDERS shared tips on keeping your windshield ice-free this winter.
As temperatures drop, Britons have to de-ice their windscreens more often before driving to work.
car experts from Iceland, Lotus car rentalhave compiled a list of tips that Icelanders have been using for years to defrost their car windows.
The easiest tip is to park your car in the right spot because the sun rises in the east and will melt it for you.
Spraying your windshield with a solution of water and vinegar every night before bed can also help.
If you don’t have vinegar, you can grate onions into your windshield.
Cut one in half and rub liberally over windows and windshield the night before.
When motorists don’t have a way to park their car indoors, they can use an old or spare bed sheet to help.
Placing a bed sheet over the windshield at night can effectively protect it from the ice.
However, if you forgot to follow any of these tips and you need a quick fix, turn your front and rear demister to maximum and then the ice will begin to melt.
After that, you can wipe away excess water with your wipers.
You can always use an ice scraper if you’re in a hurry, but it’s important to use this instead of a credit card as they can scratch the windshield.
Car experts also recommend using de-icing fluid, which speeds up the ice-scraping process and is available at most supermarkets and gas stations.
Spraying your windshield with vodka will also clear the ice on your windshield in a matter of seconds.
