Waking up bright and early to remove ice from a windshield is a pain. Unfortunately, many impatient drivers discover creative ways to break the glass instead of removing the ice.
“There are some creative ideas for getting ice off windshields, but they can be hazardous,” Wayne Robinson of Glass Doctor® of Amarillo, Texas, said. “There is a better way to remove ice from auto glass.”
Here are the Glass Doctor eight do’s and don’ts for de-icing your windshield:
DO: Pour cold water to gradually melt the ice on a “sealed,” frozen door.
DON’T: Pour hot water on the vehicle’s windshield and windows to melt the ice. The extreme temperature change can cause the glass to break.
