You’ve been de-icing your car wrong -Here’s how to do it properly


Many times I’ve seen people pouring hot water on a cold windscreen, just please don’t do this unless you like having a crack in it.


Experts say that all you need is salt, water and an old towel, by covering the towel in a water salt solution and covering it over your wind screen over night, this can stop your windshield from icing over.

If you forget or dont have a spare towel handy then you can spray the salt water over the windscreen in the morning.


If you’ve got no salt, you can mix surgical spirit or indeed any booze with water (two parts alcohol, one part water) instead.

It works because salt and alcohol has a lower melting point than normal water.
