We may not get a lot of extreme cold in Texas, but if you park outside overnight in winter or get caught in icy weather, it’s best to know how to defrost your windshield ahead of time so you can have a clear view of the road to drive safely.
Three Ways to Defrost Your Windshield
- Start your car and turn on the defrost setting and the heat. Turn off the air recirculation feature. Let your windshield heat up from the inside to melt the frost on the glass.
- Use a plastic ice scraper to scrape off the frost on the windshield.
- Use a solution of 1/3 part water to 2/3 parts rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle to spray the windshield. It will dissolve the ice with minimal work from you. [source]
What Not to Do
Never use metal objects like keys or a spatula to scrap ice off your windshield. The metal could scratch the glass.
Never pour hot water on your windshield. The sudden temperature change from cold to hot could actually crack your windshield.
Icy Windshields Create Dangerous Conditions
Winter weather conditions lead to icy windshields and roads, which can result in dangerous driving conditions for drivers on the road. Use caution when driving in the winter months, and if you have been injured in an accident, call or text Carrollton Injury Law at 972-360-9898 for a free injury claim evaluation.
