Experts share easy de-icing trick that melts ice on car windscreen in minutes

The weather has dropped to seriously low levels across the UK.

Yesterday, forecasters even predicted snow to fall as we head into the "coldest week of Autumn".

And one thing to usually come with the freeze is the thought of having to de-ice the car in the morning.

Scrapping off the ice can often be a chilly task to do, especially if you're tired.

But luckily the experts at Nationwide Vehicle Contracts say they can help drivers "fix their ice problems".

The good news is that all you need is this solution to apply onto the windscreen – then you can drive off within minutes.

Also the experts warn the solution "will not freeze" meaning the spray can be kept inside the car for the cold weather.

They said: "Too many people still take the risk of pouring boiling water on their windscreens as a quick fix to their ice problems.

"The issue with this method is that it can actually cause your windscreen to shatter, particularly if you have tiny nicks and chips.

"Even the plastic bag filled with warm water hack comes with the same risk."

They added: "Instead, there is a spray you can make with things many, particularly during the pandemic, will have in our homes.

"All you need is a spray bottle, rubbing alcohol and tap water.

"Mix one part water with two parts rubbing alcohol and fill the spray bottle with the solution.

"This can then be sprayed on your windscreen to melt the ice."

The experts also said you can use hand sanitiser to remove the frost from your keyholes if necessary.

And we all have a bottle of hand sanitiser lying around the house these days!

LeaseCar previously told drivers to use rubbing alcohol solution as a homemade de-icer.

They said the solution was so good that drivers could watch the ice "peel right off".
