The icy weather during the night has caused icy conditions across the country on Tuesday morning. The Meteorological Office has warned of temperatures below zero with the north preparing for -6 ° C and the south -3 ° C. The cold weather has led to many windows of supercarded cars.
How to get rid of frost
Driving on the windshield with ice is not safe, and doing so would violate the UK Highway Code.
If you do, you could get points on your license if the police stop you.
Frost and ice can be removed in several ways.
Scraping it with an ordinary ice scraper takes valuable time and can even scratch the glass, so it is not recommended.

Use a thaw
You can buy defrosting spray in most supermarkets, garages and service stations.
Spray directly on the icy parts of your window, then allow it to soak briefly.
After a minute or two, the frost or ice in your car window should disappear.

Use of heated rice packages or manual sodium acetate heaters
Place the rice in a mitten or a bag with a high strength seal and microwave for 30 seconds to a minute.
Pass the package of rice from side to side through the inside of the window while sitting inside your car.
This will heat the glass and the ice will melt, but be careful and fast, since, as boiling water can break the glass, keeping the heater warm in a place for too long can stress it.

Prevent ice in the windows
One way to ensure that frosted windows are avoided is to cover them overnight.
To do this, cover your windows with a towel, a folded sheet or a piece of cardboard at night before dew or ice forms on the window.
When you remove the covers in the morning, there may be some spots with moisture or ice, so you may have to scrape it in some places.
