I have been waiting for months to try out this homemade solution for de-icing windshields. Believe it or not it hasn’t been cold enough yet!

For the first time this week it was cold enough that I finally found ice on my windshield when I woke up in the morning.
To try out this DIY de-icer all you need is a clean, empty spray bottle, water, and rubbing alcohol.
Fill the bottle with 2 parts rubbing alcohol, and 1 part water, so if you use 2 cups rubbing alcohol put in 1 cup water.
Just spray the rubbing alcohol solution on the ice and it will melt instantly. When I sprayed it on my windshield the ice just disappeared.
You can also use this solution for de-thawing frozen locks, like in your car door.
You wouldn’t think something so easy and inexpensive works, but it does!
You can also prevent ice from building up in the first place by spraying a solution of 3 parts white vinegar and 1 part water on your windshield before you go to bed at night.
This solution will slow down the process of ice building up on your windshield.
