Defrosting Windshield Near Me

As the Dallas weather temperature has been at an extreme low lately due to the polar vortex, we’ve been confined to our homes, even more, this past week. When it’s finally time to hit the road, it would be no surprise that you’ll come to find your windshield to be completely iced over. If this is your case, let us help you with this frustration. We’ve come up with a few simple steps to help you defrost your windshield in seconds with a common household product - rubbing alcohol! See below to proceed with steps.

Step 1: Take an empty 12oz spray bottle and fill with 8oz of rubbing alcohol and 4oz of luke-warm water.

Step 2: Mix the solution and begin to spray the entire windshield until fully coated and wait a few minutes to allow the mixture to set into the ice.

Step 3: Once the mixture has settled in, begin to scrape off the excess ice with a glove/mitt or an old credit card.

Step 4: And voila, you’ll be done in seconds and have a perfectly defrosted windshield!
