With temperatures falling overnight many are waking up to find a car covered in frost. 

This usually means breaking out the trusty scraper and spending some time clearing off the windows in the cold before heading off to work. EIther that or letting your car run for a few minutes which wastes gas and is technically illegal.

Well, there's a new way to do it and you probably have all the supplies already in your house.

A simple solution of 1/3 water and 2/3 rubbing alcohol reportedly will melt away and ice on the spot and sounds a lot easier than using a scraper.

Have you tried something like this? I know I'm going to whip up a batch soon. The best part is that since rubbing alcohol has a freezing point of -128 degrees you can keep it in your car and it won't freeze solid.

Good luck with this cool tip.
