How to Get Ice Off a Windshield Quickly

Ice usually gets stuck on your windshield overnight, making it extremely frustrating when you need to be somewhere. However, there are a few different ways to remove snow from your car windshield and save some time in the process. Let’s check out how to remove snow from your car windshield, so you can get on with your day around Decatur:

  1. Start your car, and turn on your defroster, setting the heat to “high.” 
  2. Spray your car with a mix of warm water and salt, but don’t overspray as it can cause damage to the glass on your windshield. 
  3. Use a rubbing alcohol and water mixture to remove any layer of ice on your windshield.
  4. Once the ice starts to break down and get soft, use a scraper or anything similar to scrape away and remove the ice. 

Does Vinegar Melt Ice? 

You might be asking yourself, “Does vinegar melt ice?” Many Bloomington drivers use vinegar to de-ice their windshield, however, this is only effective if you spray vinegar on it the night before. However, if there’s already ice on your windshield, vinegar will not be as effective. Vinegar melts ice due to having acetic acid, lowering the overall freezing point of water.

One thing to note is that you should never use vinegar on your windshield if it’s cracked or damaged as it could make it worse. If you need an ice scraper that is both safe and effective for your vehicle, you can order parts from Leman's Chevrolet City Llc near Springfield!
