A MUM has revealed her simple trick for de-icing her car windscreen in seconds, and people have hailed it a "game-changer."
Angela Hickling took to Facebook to share her simple hack which requires nothing more than an empty stain remover bottle.
She has chosen Dr Beckman's carpet stain remover bottle that comes with a brush attachment that will work as a "scraper" on the car.
She simply fills the bottle with warm water and then glides the brush head again the ice, causing it to melt before her eyes.
Sharing a video of her tip she wrote: "I'm a genius, get ya self one of these bottles, fill it with warm water and ya sorted, no cold hands scraping anymore and it cleans ya window screen to, the brush bit is ideal."
For those who don't have a bottle lying around you can pick one up for £2.80 at Wilko.
Her post has since amassed almost 2,000 likes and 7,000 shares as well as hundreds of comments from motorists praising her tip.
One wrote: "I’m literally going to fish my empty bottle out of the recycling tonight!!! You absolute genius!"
A second added: " Total game changer. I knew this stuff was magic but that's just upped the scales."
While a third wrote: "Maybe you need to patent that, very clever!"
Those wanting to try the trick should stick to warm water rather than boiling.
Despite being able to clear the glass in seconds, experts believe the change in temperature could cause the windscreen to expand and crack.
