  • Water
  • Rubbing Alcohol

See? Easy, right? All you need to do is pour 1/3 cup of water and 2/3 cup of rubbing alcohol into a spray bottle, then spray it on your vehicle's windshield and watch the ice melt away instantly.

And by the way, whatever you do, never, never, never pour hot water on your windshield, as it's a quick way to crack it.

How does this simple solution work anyway? Well, because rubbing alcohol has a freezing temperature of 138 degrees below zero.

Now, it is important to keep in mind that the alcohol could be potentially harmful to your car's paint job. But as long as you're not dumping massive amounts on it, you should be just fine.
