I work a 3.92 hour day, 5 day a week job 18 miles away from my home. My 1992 Chevy is in need of a new fan for the heater. Hard to enjoy the drive when the pins for the driver door leave it 1 inch open for the commute. Rougher yet is that the heater fan comes on at will (not my will - it's own will). Therefore, on a crisp, icy morning, I've been stumped as to how to defrost the windshield.
My solution? I normally leave three or four 1/2 bricks on top of my wood stove to wrap in a towel and apply to whatever part of my body is wacky that day. So I applied my hot bricks, wrapped in towels, to the inside dash, and lo and behold, I was able to see clearly until I had gone about 3 miles down the road and my heater popped back on. I guess a little Montana smarts was required to save me the cost of a trip to a repair shop. Bring it on Old Man Winter!

You seem to be a wonderful gal. Keep it up. Love your solutions.
You can also purchase a spray to spray on your windows that works very well. You can find it at most home improvement stores in the automotive section or at an automotive store.
What a great attitude about what seems to be a true problem! Too bad everyone cannot look for solutions as you have done. I will remember this when I think I have something to complain about. Good luck and I hope you have lovely holidays.

I think old man winter heard you. We have 20 in of snow some have 30. Keep using your smarts though. If you don't use it you lose it.
