Ice Proof Car Windows with Vinegar and Water Spray

When the temperature is going to go down below freezing, spray a 3 to 1 solution of water and vinegar on your vehicle's windows. It keeps them ice proof.

Is it 3-to-1 water-to-vinegar or vinegar-to-water? Probably 3 parts vinegar. Spraying 75% water on a freezing cold windshield is more likely to *cause* ice than prevent it.

There is an easy and cheap way to make sure you don't end up with iced over windows every morning on your car. Vinegar! Just fill a spray bottle 3/4 of the way with vinegar and the rest with room temp water. Spray on glass at night and in the morning you can sleep in an extra minutes :). I keep a small spray bottle in my glove box and spray the windows when I get home in the evenings to ensure I don't forget.

I think I have read this before on here but I have a question. If you got any of the vinegar on the paint of your car, I would think that it would eat away at the enamel. It is an acid after all. I would be afraid to try it.

Doing this will cause your windshield to get pits and dips... Do not do this!
