How To Quickly Melt Ice On Windshield

If you live in a cold climate, you know how quickly ice builds up on your windshield. It can be dangerous to drive with ice on the windshield because it makes it harde to see where you’re going and increases your risk of having an accident. That said, there are several things that you can do to melt away iced-up surfaces quickly and easily.

Keep Your Car In The Garage If Possible.

While you should always be mindful of the weather, there are some things you can do to help your windshield defrost faster. If possible, keep your car in the garage during the winter months so that it’s not exposed to the elements. The sun’s rays will penetrate through windows and heat the interior of your car, melting ice on windshields much more quickly than if left outdoors.

Use A Windshield Protector.

You can keep ice from sticking to your windshield by applying a car windshield protector. This is a thin, transparent film that sticks onto your glass and prevents snow or ice from adhering to it. You’ll only need one application, which can last for days or even weeks depending on the weather conditions. It’s also easy to remove when you are ready to drive again: just peel off the film, and no damage is done!
