I’m a car expert – my 40p window defrosting hack can save drivers huge hassle on icy mornings


- Advertisment -

DRIVERS are blown away by a window defrosting hack involving a 40p household item.

Temperatures are plummeting, and many are waking up to find their car windows covered in thick frost and ice.

The mercury fell below zero in some parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland overnight, with frost in the far north.

And the Met Office have warned Brits that wintry showers will arrive within days.

To prepare, experts at Lotus Car Rental have revealed simple a hack that will make your life much easier on frosty mornings.

With a little extra thought, drivers can prevent frost from appearing in the first place by spraying their windscreen.

A solution of mixed water and distilled vinegar sprayed on the car the night before can help stop the appearance of frost.

Motorists can nab a half-litre bottle of vinegar from Sainsbury’s for 40p.

The acidic liquid is typically used as a de-icer because it has a much lower freezing point than water.

This means the liquid won’t have time to settle and freeze on the affected area.

It comes as one TikTok user demonstrated how to defrost your windscreen in just three minutes this winter using four simple steps.

Elsewhere, another effortless hack will keep you warm while driving this winter – and it will only set you back £6.

Your car’s heating system could stop working if its coolant levels get too low.

Topping up the coolant is a cheap way to keep your heater in good condition.
