This DIY Solution Will Defrost Frosty Windows In Mere Seconds

The cold never bothered you anyway.

1. Meteorologist Ken Weathers (yes, that’s his real name) of ABC affiliate WATE 6 in Tennessee published this video — which has more than 12 million views — featuring a way to instantly defrost an icy car window.

2. First, Weathers demonstrates tried and tested methods of defrosting, such as using the vehicle’s heater along with an ice scraper. And while effective, these methods take a little bit of time.

3. He then shows another method — using a spray solution to defrost the window instantly.

4. Weathers then goes back to the studio to show how to make the solution — one part water, two parts rubbing alcohol.

5. Weathers goes on to explain that the solution works because rubbing alcohol freezes at minus 128 degrees Fahrenheit, far colder that the freezing temperature of water, around 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

6. Now you’ll have a much easier way to “break the ice.”
