A MUM has claimed she knows the right way to defrost your car’s windscreen during the winter months.
Sara Deutsch, who regularly posts on TikTok, explained how a simple change to your morning routine could make a world of difference – and it won’t cost you a penny more.
Posting on her channel, she advised motorists to pull down their visors when they’re defrosting the car.
To start, drivers should start by blasting the hot air onto the window as normal, but make sure to put their visors down.
As a result, they should find that the defrosting process is far quicker.
Captioning the clip, Sarah wrote: “Teen drivers need to know this! Frozen windshields are about to be a thing with all the cold and snow.
“So, I do this video every year. If you have a windshield that is frosted over – make sure to put your visors down, so it stops the airflow and it creates a faster defrost on your windshield.
“If you ever have a sheet of ice on your car or when it’s frosted – put the [sun visor] down. Otherwise, you can feel the air come straight up over it.
“If you put the [sun visor] down, it creates a block, so that it actually defrosts faster.”
At the time of writing, the clip has racked up more than 2.7 million views as thousands of viewers flocked to the comments to praise the neat trick.
