How to Reduce Ice Build up on Car Windows

Nothing is more frustrating than waiting for your car to defrost or standing out in the cold scraping ice off your car windshield, but you can cut down on the amount of ice that builds up by cleaning the glass in your car with a simple vinegar solution.

Difficulty: Easy


Things You'll Need:



Spray bottle

Clean paper towels

Mix a half a cup of vinegar with one and a half cups of water in a spray bottle.

Saturate all glass surfaces with the mixture. You may notice some solution dripping onto your car's paint. This will not harm your car's paint finish the way commercial de-icers can.

Wipe excess solution from all windows and the windshield, but leave the windows slightly damp and allow it to air dry. The water will evaporate, but the vinegar compounds will remain to help fight ice.

Reapply the solution twice a week. You will find yourself spending less time scraping ice. Not only will this reduce ice build up, it will also keep your windows from fogging over.
