How to De-Ice Your Car's Windshield

Last updated 5 years ago

When you are on the road, there are few things more important for your safety than visibility. For this reason you need to make sure that, during the cold winter months, you thoroughly de-ice your car’s windshield before getting behind the wheel.

In this video, you will learn how to de-ice your car’s windshield. First, you have to gather the required materials. You will need a tarp or sheet, a bungee cord or straps with weights, some ice and frost prevention spray, white vinegar, water, a spray bottle, 70% isopropyl alcohol, and dish soap. Begin by covering your windshield with a sheet or tarp that is folded to the appropriate size. Then, strap the cover down with the bungee cord or straps with weights. Before you get behind the wheel, take off the sheet and the snow cover will come off with it. You can also use the ice prevention spray the night before to prevent frost buildup. 

To ensure your safety behind the wheel through all seasons, always repair a damaged windshield. Call Glass on the Move at (510) 338-4791 for effective and timely auto glass repair services in the Hayward, Berkeley, Oakland, and surrounding areas.
