How to De-Ice Your Windshield Quickly

Frozen Windshield | Clay, NY

With the holiday season in full swing here in Clay, New York, winter’s messiest weather is just around the corner. The last thing you want to encounter during a chilly morning is a windshield covered in ice. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to de-ice your windshield quickly.

Use De-Icer Spray

During New York winters, an effective de-icer spray can be your best friend. You can go out and purchase one of the many de-icer sprays available at most retail locations. Or make your own de-icer spray at home using saltwater, as it has a lower freezing point that fresh water.

Heat Up Your Car From the Inside

The inside of your car will be just as cold as the exterior. Therefore, heating up the interior of your car can help you start to warm your vehicle’s glass surfaces, which will make the de-icing go faster.

Chip Away at the Ice

Use caution when using an ice scraper to remove ice from your car’s windows. This will prevent you from scraping or denting the glass during the process.

Here at Sharon Chevrolet, we wish everyone in Clay a safe and warm winter. Remember to call us to schedule your vehicle’s seasonal service appointment if you haven’t done so yet.
