Just a scraper or warm water when in the daily. My Focus has heated screen which is amazing and should be a standard safety feature on all cars. How Ford managed to keep the patent for 25 years is beyond me. Flick it on and you have a clear screen in about 20 seconds for a heavy frost and as little as 10 for a light frost. Doesn't steam up on the inside when you drive off. When I see idiots driving whilst looking through their steering wheel I just shudder. I live on the top if a big hill in Yorkshire so i see this all the time this time of year.

I had a layer of ice on the *inside* of my windscreen at the weekend. Made a right watery mess cleaning it off. I guess the car must have been a little damp inside and hadn't moved for a few days.

Saw someone this morning with her windows open - putting the aircon on works for better!

Our product, like most, is alcohol so potentially it could impact on your paintwork protections IF it came into contact with it.

But in practical terms, on the front screen, your wipers will move ice sludge to the edge of the screen in solution with water and as the thaw happens it will run down into the scuttle and through your windscreen-base drain holes, exiting harmlessly under the car.

On side and rear windows de-icer will run diluted with water down bodywork.

I have never heard of any degradation caused by de-icer, and as it will blow off or disperse, and isnt being rubbed in, I cant see I being an issue at all.

Cheers - You know we're a paranoid bunch round here! I might get some as it was hard work this weekend.

Preheat on the RRS, set to 15 mins before mein furher goes out and it's toasty warm, it's also got heated front screen. The old transit I use for work has a heated screen so I have to wait a minute or so.
