What is salt, and what does it do to ice?

I love melting people's cars with salt.

Looks like they already needed a new windshield, that's a pretty big crack. Sandpaper on the wiper blades forcing them to replace it will make them safer and less likely to get pulled over by cops, they ought to be grateful!

Or they were getting it replaced anyway, and made up this gag they "fell" for.

Add isopropanol 99% to your washer fluid reservoir in the winter.

What does that do to the seals and gaskets though? Will it cause a bigger problem down the line?

You're worried about damage to your windscreen washer set up in the long term? It's just a cheap 12v water pump with a some rubber lines, you can cobble that stuff together at any decent parts store.

I haven't had any issues I the ten years I've been doing it however if you're worried you can just keep a spray bottle of rubbing alcohol in your truck and apply directly to a frosted window.

Depends on the type of rubber I’d assume. Diluting the isopropyl would probably minimize any damage

Hot water works the best, preferably almost-but-not-quite boiling water.

Hot water is probably how it got cracked in the first place. Cold water is already alot warmer than ice and is all that's needed.

yeah this is what i do. i toss "sink hot" buckets. that loosens up the ice so i can scrap it off.

if you let your car defrost and warm up for 20 minutes or so helps too. this is for ohio michigan indiana region, i know it gets much colder in Montana or the Dakotas

I cracked cold windshield just by placing my hot foot on it. Boiling water would hardly fair better.

They just need to go up a grade in grit every day until they get up to 40000 grit.

It's an easy fix though: just drive really fast on the highway - the wind will smooth it out.

It works most of the time, and remember to jerk the wheel side to side while at top speed, to shake off the last bit of residue.

Starting to make sense why they claim there is a need to ban "fake facts".
