If you have the opportunity, always park the car so that the front part faces east, preferably not hidden by buildings and houses. Thus, the first morning rays of the sun will slowly melt the ice and frost on the windshield.

And putting cardboard on the glass is a great way to prevent the formation of ice. You can also place an old towel instead of cardboard.

You can also make a homemade thawing liquid that you will just spray on the frozen glass in the morning and thus avoid scratching. It’s very simple.

Pour a liter of alcohol, a deciliter of water and 1 teaspoon of dishwashing detergent into the bottle. Shake well. There is another recipe – pour alcohol and water into a spray bottle in a ratio of 2: 1 (two thirds alcohol and one third of water).

If you want the wipers not to get stuck to the frozen glass, put old socks on it. Or just lift them up so they don’t stand on the glass so they don’t even get stuck. The exterior mirrors on the car will not freeze if you ‘pack’ them in plastic bags. You can also wrap them with rubber band.

Also protect the locks from ice – this is where the WD40 helps. Spray it into the locks on the car and it will not freeze overnight. And if you want to protect the door from icing so that you can open it in the morning without any problems, grab some grease. It can be glycerin, Vaseline, edible vegetable oil.

If you find yourself somewhere in the city, freeze your windows, and you do not have a spray or scraper with you – reach for a bank card and scrape off the ice. It will go a little slower, but you will still be able to sit in the car after a while.

Then there is the trick of not fading the windows in your vehicle, which is often the case during cold days. It’s very simple – cover all the glasses with shaving foam and rub well with a paper towel, until the excess disappears. You can use the same method with bathroom mirrors.

On top of that, fill old socks with cat litter, tie them up and leave them in the car. This sand absorbs moisture, so it will also reduce the amount of it in your vehicle.

In the end: It’s not out of place to repeat – never, ever pour hot water over frozen glass, as they can crack, especially if they already have minor damage. A better choice is lukewarm water that you can smear with a cloth on the glass.
