VF and a visit from Jack Frost

Photo by George Hodan

With the chilly mornings lately, many of us have been greeted by Jack Frost's handiwork on our car windows, so I thought it would be a good time to repeat a tip I've shared before. 

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.

Now, some of you have asked about the acid eroding the paint on your cars. It will not, provided you are diluting it and not sloshing it full strength all over your paint job. A light spritzing on your windows will not have an effect. However, it may start to eat away at the wax, so be prepared to have to wax your car again once the weather warms up again. 

That's your tip for this particular Vinegar Friday. Feel free to share!

Keeping it green with vinegar,
