No... not what you thought... much much more boring.

After having to defrost the car TWICE this evening after leaving work, just wondered what you do with your own cars...

I'm a squirter.

I use to just clear the windows with walm water, but now i can get deicer so cheap it doesnt really matter!

Warm water is in the lead

Toyota safety feature that one Very Happy

With my old n/a l often had to get in through the passenger door and force the drivers door open from inside. It was this or risk pulling the door handel off lol. Drivers door was always worse for some reason which was an inconvenience.

I normally scrape as I forget to stock up on spray and am in too much of a hurry for walm water.

Scraping is normally done with old bank card too as I forget to steal a scraper.

Rich you must be one hell of a quick scraper to beat hot water lol. Or it takes a long time for hot water to come through your taps in the mornings.

Scrape, I hate deicer for some reason. I've got a hardcore metal scraper that does an awesome job. Just use the heated windscreen alone on the back.

walm water all day long for me...I hate deicer as it goes on the paint and leaves stupid streaks, didn't like using a scraper as my 106's windscreen is already scratched to fudge couldn't afford to inflict anymore on it. Laughing

love the fact that non of us are organised enough to cover it the night before! Laughing

Car cover for me Laughing

Much easier pulling the cover off and having a frost free car then messing around with kettles, scrapers or de-icer which barely works. Loads quicker too.
