Vinegar 'can ice-proof car glass'
You heard it from Auto Windscreens, the big news in Auto Window Glass
Motorists can use a vinegar solution to ice-proof their car glass, one commentator has claimed.
Tara Kuczykowski wrote in a piece on dealseekingmom.com that people should fill a spray bottle with three parts vinegar to one part water and spray it on all of their car glass at night.
"In the morning, they'll be clear of icy mess and you can sleep in an extra five minutes," she said.
Ms Kuczykowski went on to explain that vinegar contains acetic acid, which raises the melting point of water and prevents water from freezing.
She had a number of other winter car care tips, including rubbing wiper blades with rubbing alcohol or ammonia to fix badly streaking or squeaky wipers.
The writer said that people can prevent their car doors from freezing shut by spraying cooking oil on the rubber seals.
Last month, South Wales Police warned motorists not to leave their cars unattended with the keys in the ignition while defrosting their windows.
