TikTok user Andrew Huston says you can pour hot water into a sandwich bag and rub it against your freezing cold windshield.

In a two-year-old viral video that has resurfaced, Andrew turns on the hot tap and places a ziplock sandwich bag underneath.

He then proceeded to pull it up and down on his frozen windshield, melting the accumulated frost instantly.

Huston’s videotapes has garnered over 3 million views and over 12,000 comments – most of them drivers thanking him for his service.

User Asta Butkiene wrote: “You’re my hero” accompanied by a heart emoji and no less than three heart emojis.

This is not the first time we Features this trick. We previously reminded drivers in February of this year.

However, not all are convinced, with many commenters on TikTok pointing out that Andrew’s seemingly great solution can break the windshield if the water gets too hot.

Last week, RAC warns about how hot water may cause your screen to crack.

The AA advises that a “good old-fashioned windshield ice scraper” is still the best way to clean ice without endangering the glass.

AA spokesman Tony Rich said: “You won’t always have a bag of sandwiches or hot water on hand, while the scraper should always be in the car. A broken bag can also lead to deposition.

“Using a windshield ice scraper, or a heater on a running motor vehicle (while never leaving the vehicle) can work quickly.

“Some Electric Vehicles have a preheat device to clean the screen before you set off.”

The AA also advises: “If you use hot water in a car with ice, you run the risk of actually damaging your windshield.

“Most people know not to use boiling water on their windshield, only 2% of people we asked said they do.

“But our survey shows that young adults (18-24 years old) are more than twice as likely to use boiling water as the general population.

“One in 20 people is at risk of having their windshield cracked by pouring boiling water on it.”

In addition, we have mentioned ten checks that motorists need do it before winter comes.
