Cold air rages in winter, after one night many car owners find that windshield of their car is covered with ice. So, in face of problem that car windshield freezes easily in winter, how to solve it? Today editor will give you some quick tips for de-icing.
Why does a car windshield freeze in winter? This is because after people leave car, there is still a trace of hot air in car, so temperature of car's windshield is higher than temperature outside, which causes water droplets formed by hot air to condense. ice and close windshield at night. During snowy season, snow melts and turns into ice on windshield.
Many car owners will pour hot water directly on windshield to hurry up, but if temperature difference is too great, glass will break and also damage wiper rubber and car paint, so hot water is absolutely not needed. unacceptable! There are also some car owners who use their windshield wipers to scrape frost off windshield, which is also wrong. At low temperatures, wiper freezes tightly, and if it is used forcibly, wiper motor will burn out. Even if it can be scraped off, ice slag on glass will scratch glass surface.
If you want to defrost your windshield, correct way should be to completely soak a towel in hot water and wring out water, then wipe frost off your windshield with hot towel, which will not only quickly remove windshield. Frost on glass is removed and tearing problem caused by hot water contacting glass is also eliminated. However, while wiping glass with a hot towel can provide quick de-icing, it also has certain limitations.
When windshield of car is heavily iced, we need to use warm air to remove ice. First of all, we must start car when temperature of water in engine rises, turn on air conditioner and blow warm air on windshield until ice melts. Second, you can directly use special ice shovel, but when defrosting, glass anti-freeze shovel cannot be scratched back and forth, and should be pushed in one direction to prevent scratching glass.
Alternatively, you can also use chemical deicing method. In fact, this method consists of gently spraying a vehicle-specific de-icing spray onto iced glass, and frost on windshield can be quickly melted away. This special ice melting spray is not only fast acting, it won't damage car paintwork and can even prevent car glass from refreezing, which can be said to kill three birds with one stone.
In addition to mastering de-icing skills, preventing car windows from freezing at source is most important thing, and key to car windshield icing prevention is maintaining a constant temperature inside and outside car. We only need to open door to ventilate for a few minutes after using car, and when temperature inside car drops to same temperature as outside car, then use windshield wiper to wipe off water on windshield. in morning windshield of car will not freeze.
