A tip from the wintery north: Removing ice from your car windows. It’s a cold morning. Last night’s rain has turned to a thick coating of hard ice on your car windows and you need to get to work. So you take out your scraper and start hacking away. Wrong wrong wrong. Here’s how we do it in Western NY.

First, start the car and turn the defrost temp all the way up and then blast the fans at full power. Turn on any electric window defrosters. Now, just sit there in your rapidly warming car and wait. In about five minutes you’ll see the ice beginning to slide off the glass. Not you can go outside and clear all the windows in a few minutes with no effort. You’re welcome.
