Are you fed up of battling with a frozen car every morning? Here’s a video we’ve made to give you our top tips on de-frosting your car so you can get on with your safe journey to work! As many of you know, every second counts in the morning when you’re rushing around getting ready for work or getting the kids ready for the school run – but not only is it dangerous, it’s also illegal not to have all of your car windows and mirrors clear when driving, and you can be fined up to £1000 if you get caught.
Getting up just five minutes earlier during the winter can make all the difference, and it’s much less stressful as you’re not trying to look through the small hole in your ice-covered windscreen to drive, too. Another MoneySupermarket top tip: never pour hot or boiling liquid onto your windscreen as it will crack the glass and make sure you only use an ice scraper to remove the ice as anything else can scratch it. Which means you could end up with a much bigger problem than just an icy windscreen!
