If it's cold enough to frost up your car's windows, then it's too cold to stand outside painstakingly trying to scrape the ice off. To the rescue: These shortcuts that will clear up your windshield in SECONDS.
If you know ahead of time that the temps are dropping below freezing, dissolve a teaspoon of salt into a quart of water, dunk an old towel into the salty liquid, and place the towel over your windshield overnight. (You can secure the towel by placing the wipers over it.) The salt water freezes at a lower temperature than regular water.
No time for the towel trick? Pour the salt-water mixture into a spray bottle and spritz it on your windshield. The salty liquid will melt the ice pronto. Or you can try mixing rubbing alcohol with water (two parts water, one part alcohol) and spraying that. The alcohol, like salt, has a lower freezing temperature, and will melt the ice. (You can try this with vodka, too!)
There goes another excuse for arriving late to your destination during the winter!
