I've been waiting for months to try this homemade windshield deicing solution. Believe it or not, it hasn't been cold enough yet!

For the first time this week, it was cold enough for me to finally find ice on my windshield when I woke up in the morning.
To try out this DIY defroster, all you need is a clean, empty spray bottle, water and rubbing alcohol.
Fill the bottle with 2 parts of rubbing alcohol and 1 part of water, so if you are using 2 cups of rubbing alcohol, put 1 cup of water.
Just spray the rubbing alcohol solution on the ice and it will instantly melt. When I sprayed it on my windshield, the ice just disappeared.
You can also use this solution to defrost frozen locks, like in the door of your car.
You wouldn't think something as easy and inexpensive would work, but it is!
You can also prevent ice from building up in the first place by spraying a solution of 3 parts white vinegar and 1 part water on your windshield before going to bed at night.
