  • Instead, look into a high-quality deicing product, which would be specifically designed to melt the ice and frost away quickly.
  • Additionally, you can simply scrape off the ice with an ice-scraper. If you don’t already have one in your car, you should remedy that situation ASAP.
  • Lastly, if you are really desperate, you could simply pour a bucket of lukewarm water over your windshield. However – never pour boiling water on your windshield, which could cause it to crack.
