Windshield covered in snow that says help


There’s nothing like the good old-fashioned way. This way takes the most time and keeps you in the cold, but you can scrape all the ice off the car for better visibility. Make sure your windshield and rear window are clear of snow and ice, because those are the most important. If you don’t scrap off the ice on your other windows, that can create a bigger blind spot for you. 


If you just want to sweep off the snow and let the engine do the rest, you can. Letting the engine heat up and then turning on the defroster will melt the ice on your rear window and windshield. It will also help you while you drive by clearing the fog on the inside of the glass. 

Home Remedies 

There are also home remedies that you can try to help melt snow and ice from your windshield. Vinegar can help melt the ice and snow and rubbing alcohol can help your windshield wipers get rid of the slush. Do not put hot water on the windshield, it will just add more ice and even damage your windshield.
