Icy windshields may be frozen forever after drivers discover an ingenious hack to stop frost in its tracks.
Incredibly, the clever trick only requires one common household item.
And besides, it won’t cost you a penny.
Sub-zero temperatures often leave cars with a layer of ice on the windshield.
And trying to scrape it off with a credit card or an old CD case when trying to get somewhere isn’t fun.
However, if you drape a towel over your windshield before a cold night falls, the glass will stay completely frost-free.
The car hack was revealed in a TikTok video showing a windshield partially covered with flannel.
While the rest of the screen is heavily iced, the glass underneath is completely free of ice when the towel is removed.
The video, which amassed over 7.2 million views and 390,000 likes, got people talking.
Some were impressed with the hack, and one remarked, “Love it.”
Another chimed in: “Common sense.”
But others were more skeptical, suggesting that buying a windshield cover would solve the problem more effectively.
Using a towel to keep your windshield from freezing isn’t the only handy trick to banning ice from your engine.
Another TikToker showed how to use hot water to fill a Tesco lifetime bag to easily wipe away ice.
And another deicer trick is to put a squirt of alcohol on a rag and rub it into the ice – removing it in seconds.
