2 Ingredient DIY De-Icer



When the mercury drops and the ice begins to form on the glass of your vehicle the last thing you want to do is spend time in the cold scraping it off. Thankfully, a simpler method has been developed, spray de-icer.

A single can of de-icer may cost roughly $4 a can and may last you a week or two, but certainly not the entire winter. Thankfully the chemical combination for de-icer is simpler than you think, and you can likely create your own using items you already have at home!

What you’ll need:
     a spray bottle
     water
     isopropyl alcohol (you can find it for $1 or so at most drug stores)

Directions:

1. Fill the bottle 1/3 - 1/4 of the way with room temperature water (not hot or boiling).

2. Fill the rest of the bottle with isopropyl alcohol.

3. Twist on the nozzle and shake thoroughly to mix ingredients.

4. Spray generously over glass windshield and window and watch as the ice quickly melts away.

Note: Be sure to properly dilute the isopropyl alcohol with water as spraying it directly on the exterior of your vehicle without dilution could damage the paint.
