Instead of using expensive de-icer on your car windscreen in the cold weather, or trying to scrape ice off with a rubber scraper thingie, pour warm water (not boiling!) over all your car windows and switch on the windscreen wipers to stop it freezing over again. This way you won't have to spend ages standing outside in the cold to de-ice your car.

We have two families living on the property and a very close neighbor. In the winter when the windshields get frozen and frosted over during the night, One of us goes out with a bottle of windshield washer and washes the windows for everyone. The windshield washer has to be the all weather kind and it will melt the ice immediately. We are a happy neighborhood who can all see clearly when driving on frosted mornings. The windshield washing fluid is freeze proof and will not hurt the car.

Our two car garage has too much stuff lining the walls to accommodate both large vehicles we own. When the second vehicle is needed for early morning transportation but is coated with frost that would take time to scrape off, my husband takes the first vehicle out of the garage, brings in the second vehicle and then plugs in the small space heater.

Within 15 minutes, no matter how bad the glazing of ice crystals, the vehicle is covered with droplets of water instead of frost. This way, no one has to stand outside in the cold to scrape but both of us have vehicles we can just get in and go!
