De icer

First frost of the year on the car this morning and having sealed the glass with Angelwax H2GO was wondering what sort of de icer to use.

Any suggestions?

I have H2GO on mine and use the Car Chem de icer. Bought 5L last Christmas during their promotion period. Don't know if it will degrade any screen sealant or not.

I do have angelwax h2go on also, and I use angelwax clarity screen wash diluted as per instruction for de-icer:
“Dilution Ratios:

19:1 Summer Use
9:1 Autumn/Spring Use
4:1 Winter Use (-15)
1:1 Extreme Winter (-25)
0:1 De-Icer. Use with the supplied trigger spray

It works ok, not wow but at least I know that my h2go protection is fine.

Di water works for me, keep a 2.5 or a 5l in the house and pour as needed.

Thinking this year of keeping some in a spray bottle in the car.

I hate the thought of any deicer as it will degrade coatings and LSP's and plastic dressing

Autoglym De-Icer make an effective de-icer which is harmless to paint, rubber, plastic and glass.

I would guess that all de-icer products affect LSPs and coatings to some extent, but it is the extent that you can limit.

I know that the Autoglym product states the above on the reverse side of its bottle.

+1 on the luke warm water.
I've always got an empty 2 litre coke bottle with a sports cap on to squirt over the windscreen in the winter.

Water is enough, just tepid.

I use AG de icer since getting car with frameless doors as can’t open door if glass won’t drop and have found it very effective.

Have used water previously, but if this then re-freezes, properly stuck with door,...

Really like the fact that the AG de icer is a trigger spray rather than aerosol can, so can be more accurate and use less...
