TIP #2 – Defrost your windows well
Neglecting to defrost your windows might get you to your destination faster, but it’s a dangerous habit. Plan for a few extra minutes to clean all your car’s windows well. And don’t forget the top of your vehicle-snow could slide down the windshield and obstruct your view while the vehicle is in motion. Also, clean the inside of your windows once a week. Invest in a good windshield scraper. If you find yourself without one, a credit card can work as an ice scraper in a pinch.
Use a mixture of three parts vinegar, one part water in a spray bottle to make window deicer. Never use hot water to melt ice, the sudden change of temperature can cause the glass to shatter.
