Clear frost from your windscreen in seconds using a SANDWICH BAG

A man from Coventry has come up with an ingenious technique to clear frost in seconds - and it's making our mornings a whole lot smoother!

Everyone has their own method when it comes to clearing a frozen windscreen, whether that be a can of de-icer, hacking away with a scraper or just sitting and waiting for your heating to do the job. But with Storm Darcy setting in across the Harrogate district and with windscreens accumulating more than just a light dusting of snow and frost overnight, people have been crying out for a quicker way to clear that pesky ice. Thankfully a man from Coventry has come up with a bizarre but ingenious technique that can clear the frost in seconds - and it's making our mornings a whole lot smoother! Daniel Harris shared his idea on Facebook, telling family and friends to fill up a sandwich bag with warm water and simply drag it across the windscreen to melt away the ice in seconds. He wrote:

"Hot water in a food bag and bam you've got a de-icer and a hand warmer. Works a treat, and it's fast! I used warm tap water so I could safely hold it and lower the risk of cracking my screen. "The de-icer cans are so cold in the morning and this way keeps you nice and toasty. Oh and yes it was ice not condensation. I know it looks it but try it and you won't be disappointed."
Daniel's idea has gone viral as people adopt it as a quick and easy way to clear their windscreens - plus it keeps your hands warm! Read more local stories from Your Harrogate here.
