Opened the front door and just sheets of clear ice. I had difficulty in getting to the garden gate.
I had to put down rock salt before Ann could step out the door.
Then big problem my de icier would not touch the ice on windscreen and itís was too solid to try and chip away.
As the clock was ticking I resorted to filling a big lemonade bottle with cold water from the tap.
I slowly poured it onto the windscreen and it worked gradually melting the ice. A second bottle was required to finish off.
I think this only worked as the air temp. had crept up so that the water did not freeze.
Do not ever use hot or warm water. It could crack your screen and also when warm or hot water cools it can go colder than the original surface temp. Some sort of temp bounce.
Have a good day. Allan C.
