Hot or Cold Water on Frozen Car Windows?
January 27, 2009 6:40pm CST
I just don't remember so we slowly poured a cup of luke-warm water on our car windows this morning. We're a little frost illiterate here in Southern California. Or perhaps it's just me. There's already a crack in the front window so we didn't want to have it implode from the frost. Anyhow, is it hot, luke-warm, or cold water we pour on frozen windows.

hello gtargirl it seems almost reasonable that one would pour cold water onto the frozen car windows like that. but what i always do, if i can at all get into the inside of the car to start it, that is exactly what that i do. i will let my car run for about ten minutes with the defroster on in the car while that it is running, and then when i go back outside to get into my car to drive somewhere, it is usually ready for me to go in. take care and have a beautiful evening.

That was the plan. . . to get inside and use the defroster. But it wasn't defrosting very fast and I had to get my son to school. The other thing was that we were so totally not ready to see frost on anything. We have a three-car garage . . . you would think we would use it for the car when the weather gets like this. Anyway, thanks TnWoman.

You should hear me speak German, that is terrible. But, your dutch is getting better and better. My Dutch is getting rusty now that I live in Berlin. Dutch is my second language, I learned it when I was 14 years old. Somehow it does not stick, like the first language. English. Yes, I like those smiley faces, hehehehe! Groetjes, tot de volgende keer.
