As the temperature goes below 0 degrees your car’s windshield get covered with ice. There are two methods of removing this frost.
- People start their cars and AC and turn on heaters on full after a couple minutes it starts melting. This will start melting unless whole air in the car get hot sometimes shift the air flow towards windshield by using this technique you can get ice melted earlier but this is a risky technique because some time due to the sudden change in temperature windshield gets cracked. Also, a lot of petrol/gas is consumed in this process which is also a waste of national resources.
- Another way of cleaning, some people use ice removing brushes, this technique also consumes a lot of time and you have to stay in the cold while performing this exercise and even some scratches appear due to this.
Then what should you because every process has some setbacks should you drive the car without defrosting windshield. No, I am suggesting to do this as this is the riskiest.
There is a home solution can help you solving this problem. Take 1 part of water and 2 parts of Isopropyl alcohol (IUPAC name propan-2-ol), also called isopropanol or dimethyl carbinol, is a compound with the chemical formula C3H8O or C3H7OH or CH3CHOHCH3 (sometimes represented as i-PrOH). It is a colourless, flammable chemical compound Isopropyl alcohol will freeze at −89 °C (−128 °F). Isopropyl alcohol is a household item so you can easily get it in the market or you might have at your home Spray this on the windshield frost will disappear in seconds. You can always keep a bottle of this solution ready in your car As the isopropyl alcohol has freezing point 128 F below the water freezing point so this solution will never freeze.
