How do you keep the windscreen free from frost?

Just a thought....

OK if garaged for the mornings but...

How you you keep the screen in tip top shape?

Times start would be nice wouldnt it! i.e. set the car to warm up 8:00 am

Do you use de-icer?

That's terrible Pete!

I know a few people use cardboard on their windscreens to prevent the frost. I just don't go out until it's melted off later in the day unless I have to

Tried the de-icer the night before, but it was still frosty the morning after

Will still have to use the scrapper.

What I really do is use warm water and a squigy (sp)

Poor warm water over screen to clear ice then squigy dry before it freezes again. Works for me
