The best scrapers to clear a frozen windscreen

Winter is here and so are the icy mornings. If you live in the lower parts of New Zealand, you know how frustrating it can be to have to daily go through the motions of scraping the frost from your windscreen before you can drive.

For those of you who read our previous post on how to clear a frozen windscreen, you would have recognised that several of the techniques involve the use of a scraper. So what type of scrapers are available and how do you use them to clear a frozen windscreen? Here are some tips and recommendations from our experts.


Tips and recommendations from the experts:

1 First of all, you need a good quality scraper that is durable, ergonomic and effective. You don't want to waste time and energy with a flimsy or dull tool that can damage your windscreen or leave streaks. Some scrapers have features like a soft grip, a squeegee, a brush or a heating element to make the whole job easier and faster.
2Secondly, you need to choose the right technique to scrape off the frost. Start by turning on your car's defroster and heater to warm up the windscreen from the inside. Then, use the scraper to gently remove the ice from the outside, starting from the top and working your way down. Don't use too much force or scrape in circular motions, as this can scratch your windscreen or create more ice.
3Thirdly, you need to prevent the frost from forming in the first place. There are some simple ways to do this, such as parking your car in a garage or under cover, using a windscreen cover or spray, or applying an anti-frost coating to your windscreen. These methods can save you time and hassle in the morning and protect your windscreen from damage.

We hope these tips will help you clear your frozen windscreen quickly and safely. Remember to always check your visibility before driving and drive carefully in icy conditions. Stay safe and warm this winter!
