It's that time of year again.

Frost on your windshield can be a pain. But what can you do?

Turning on your freezing car and sitting in it, waiting for the windows to defrost, is not exactly optimal.

Sure, you could break out the ice scraper. But that's physically taxing and almost always aggravating. Not to mention the fact that, half the time, your ice scraper doesn't even do that good of a job.

But there's an inexpensive and quick way to take the frost off your windshield: a mixture of rubbing alcohol and water.

A solution of one-third water and two-thirds rubbing alcohol will do the trick. And, since rubbing alcohol has a freezing point of 127 degrees below zero, it will never freeze on your windshield.
