How to defrost your windscreen: new car de-icing technique goes viral – here’s how it works
Man’s genius de-icing hack will clear your car in no time and keep your hands warm
Daniel Harris shared his on social media and people are loving it, with many rushing to try it for themselves
One of the worst things about winter is having to get up ten minutes earlier so you can stand outside in the freezing cold de-icing the car.
Before you’ve even started your day you’re freezing cold and fed up after scraping away at all that horrible ice.
But one man might have just made that morning chore a LOT more pleasant after he coming up with a new way of doing it – and it’s genius.
He shared his idea on social media and people are loving the idea, and many have already tried it for themselves.
Instead of using a can of de-icer and a scraper, Daniel Harris fills a sandwich bag with warm water.
He then simply drags it over the windows and watches the ice melt immediately.
He wrote: “Hot water in a food bag and bam you’ve got a de icer and a hand warmer. Works a treat, and it’s fast!”
He later added: “I used warm tap water so I could safely hold it and lower the risk of cracking my screen.
“The de-icer cans are so cold in the morning and this way keeps you nice and toasty. Oh and yes it was ice not condensation.
“I know it looks it but try it and you won’t be disappointed.”
Daniel’s tip could come in handy this week as a brutal -11 Arctic chill will return and plunge the country into another deep freeze .
Bone-chilling gales are set to sweep in from the east and plunge temperatures to subzero for days.
It’ll lead to a blanket of fresh snowfall by Wednesday for many areas, including southeast England.
“Next week looks like bringing further very cold weather and snow which could affect much of the country.
“Some of this snowfall could be heavy and towards the middle of next week there is the potential for some disruption due to the weather.
“We can expect more of the same through the rest of the month and through much of February,”. Said James Madden, an Exacta Weather forecaster.”
