What is the fastest way to melt the frozen windshield glass and mirrors of my vehicle during the freezing rain condition?

+5 votes
As everyone knows that some parts of Canada has terrible winter conditions when the weather gets to freezing rain conditions. It happened to me that during the Freezing rain weather condition, my car was fully frozen. I couldn't even open my car door at all. Somehow i opened my car door and turned up the heat inside. It took me ten minutes to warm up the interior of the car but the windshield glass and mirrors outside was still frozen solid. I had to wait at least 20 minutes before attempting to break the ice using my ice chipper to chip off the ice frozen on my car windows. But if there is a faster way to melt those ice, i could be saving on gas running to melt those ice buildup. Does anyone has any good ideas to melt ice fast and easy from the car's windshield and windows?

The cheapest and the fastest way to melt frozen ice sheet on your windshield is to spray 70% Isopropyl Alcohol that you can buy over the counter at most pharmacy or dollar store. This solution instantly melts the ice sheet and in no time, you can simply wipe your windshield with some windshield fluid and then you are good to go. This 70% Isopropyl solution is way cheaper than other commercial liquid solution advertised on TV.
