With the onset of cold weather, the number of household problems associated with car care, including car maintenance, increases significantly. Due to the low temperatures, drivers have to warm up their vehicles' engines for a long time and regularly scrape ice off the windshield.

SSPDaily writes: "There are many tips on the Internet, of varying degrees of effectiveness, on how to prevent glass from icing up and how to get rid of ice quickly if it does. In particular, one clever person recently shared a life hack on social media to solve the problem of a car windshield freezing with a bottle of vodka."

Is vodka a driver's best friend?

Yes, 26-year-old Jack Mantipley from Scotland claims that spraying vodka on the windshield and adding "a few shots" to the windshield washer prevents icing. According to Jack, in this case, the type of vodka does not matter, and any "cheap" bottle of alcohol will work well.

The video shows Jack pouring vodka on the windshield and then pouring the rest of the bottle into the windshield washer. After posting the video on his TikTok, he collected more than 1.8 million views from surprised colleagues.

The driver claims that the alcohol "doesn't freeze" and therefore prevents anything from icing up. Jack explained: "I thought this was a more famous hack, to be honest. It's something I've known for quite some time and I've been doing it since I started driving."

He continued: "I was outside the day before I posted the original video and my neighbor asked me what I was doing. I always used vodka. It's very strong, so I decided it was the best kind of alcohol."

In the continuation of the video, Jack showed how to make a spray with vodka without pouring it directly. He said: "If you take a spray bottle and put the top on a bottle of vodka, it will last longer."

Jack said he used to use store-bought de-icer, but it was much less effective. He believes that timing is key, as it affects the effectiveness of the product, and recommends that drivers apply it in the evening.

"If you go out at night and apply it to your windshield, it will be much more effective," Jack added.
