A lot of us living in Portland, Oregon, or its suburbs know how cold it might get during winter season, with some areas near 10-15 degrees it is very easy for cars parked outside to get very cold and freeze up overnight. And what happens the next morning?, you wake up late or barely in time to get to work only to realize your windshield is frozen and you cant see a thing, and you think, “I gotta go!”, so you decide to pour some hot water on your windshield to melt the ice… Bad Idea! Why? because in a few seconds you will see your windshield crack!
That is why it is extremely important to take the time to de-ice your car with time by letting your car warm up for about 5-10 min. The heat of the engine and your a/c will help de-ice your windshield in a safely manner. Another alternative is to purchase a de-icer spray but you would be exposing yourself to chemicals.
