Besides the fact that it’s illegal to drive around Caldwell with ice obstructing your windshield, it’s also dangerous. Follow any of these methods – or a combination thereof – to get ice off your windshield quickly and easily.
- Remove Snow – Before you do anything else, make sure to remove any snow from the windshield, because snow serves to insulate the cold.
- Deicer Spray – One of the most effective and least physically demanding methods of getting ice off your windshield is to use a deicer solution. There are a number of different solutions, including 70% isopropyl alcohol to one part water, salt water, and commercial deicer sprays. Once the ice is melted, make sure to remove these solutions from your windshield with your wipers or a squeegee.
- Use Your Defroster – Start your car 10 minutes or so before you plan to drive, and turn on the windshield defroster. This will warm the windshield up from the inside out, loosening up to the ice and making it easier to get off.
- Use Your Scraper – Using the defroster or deicer spray will loosen up the ice on your windshield so that it’s easy to remove it from the car with your scraper.

If you remove the snow from your windshield, apply a deicer spray, and turn on your defroster before leaving your Caldwell driveway, there’s a good chance you won’t even have to worry about using your scraper and can simply remove any remaining ice with your windshield wipers.
