    Default Winter TIP for you windshield

    for everybody that has had the problem of ice or even frost on your windshields in the morning. I have found that you can make your own De-Icer from products you have at home for a fraction of the cost of buying the store/marketed brand solutions. All you need is regular tap water and some rubbing (Isopropyl) alcohol. You will need to mix 1/3 part water with 2/3 part rubbing alcohol into a squirt bottle and there you go you have made a De-Icer solution that you can use for pennies on the dollar. You can even keep this solution in your car since rubbing (Isopropyl) alcohol wont freeze unless it is greater than 128 degrees below zero.

    The rubbing alcohol comes in various levels. Seen some at 70% and at 50%.. I would guess less water for the 50%.
