Easy way to get rid of FROST on windshield

1/3 c  lukewarm water and 2/3 c Isopropyl alcohol.  Place mixture in a spray bottle and spray your frozen windshield.  Keep in car because the alcohol will not freeze.  It's a breeze.  Cat Very Happy

When mixing products and putting in a plastic spray bottle --- be sure children don't get their hands on it.

I just use the car's defroster.  If the frost is too heavy / the defroster would take too long, I carry a scraper in the glove compartment.

That works like a charm - I mixed up a bottle and used it on my windshield!

Is to park it in a garage then you won't have frost!! LOL LOL I am only teasing you I just couldn't resist! LOL Great idea to mix this up and keep in your vehicle because you really can get frost during the day here in CO if you are parked outside.

I heard last night if you rub your windshield with the cut side of a potato or onion, frost won't form.  Also dip your key in hand sanitizer to unlock a frozen lock.

Um, be REAL careful with this!  Glass expands when it gets hot so you'll definitely break or crack your windshield if the temperature of that water is too warm.  I would vote for the ice scraper over this method all day every day.
