Here's an easy way to clear off your windshield during the winter.

I've lived in Illinois for my whole life, so I'm used to winter.  That doesn't mean I like it.

I know every year there's snow, ice, and cold. To go out, I'll have to bundle up in many layers. At some point, I'm going to be shoveling and scraping windows. I despise it all.

So anytime I can find a better way, I'm all for it.

How about a fast and simple way to defrost my windows? I definitely could use that.

According to"How To Defrost Your Windshield (In Seconds) Using Basic Household Items." There's even a video to show me how to do it.

Basically, all I need is some rubbing alcohol, water, and a spray bottle.

"You take two parts rubbing alcohol and one part water, throw it into a spray bottle and use it on your windshield."

Like I said, quick and easy. Even more important, it's cheap.
