Ask Aunt Laura ~ De-Icing your Windshield


You’re late for an appointment and rush out the door only to find your windshield is frozen over. You don’t have time to run the defroster for 10 minutes and you can’t find the scraper.

AHH! This simple recipe of rubbing alcohol and water combined in a spray bottle will save the day. Keep it in your car so it’s always handy, and no it won’t freeze. :)
