A frost-free Vinegar Friday

Is it just me, or do Fridays come up awfully quickly these days? Only 3 more Vinegar Fridays before Christmas! How is that possible??

As the cold air descends, I have a tip I feel is worth sharing again and again. To help you avoid the miserable scrapping of your windshield on frosty mornings:

Mix up a 3:1 solution of distilled white vinegar and water in a spray bottle and spray it on your windshield and other car windows. Ice will not form on the windows because the acetic acid in vinegar raises the melting point of water which prevents freezing. Cool beans.

That's it. Have a safe and frost-free weekend!

Keeping it green and easy with vinegar,



  1. I have a dumb question: spray this at night and the frost doesn't form in the middle, right? Not spray it in the morning and it melts he frost?? How often do you have to spray it?

    1. It's not a dumb question! Spray it on at night for a frost-free windshield in the morning.
