Motorists praise fan bottom to defrost frozen car windscreen in minutes

With winter right around the corner, most drivers will know the faff of having an icy car.

Temperatures are dropping low which means vehicles are going to be pretty much frozen each morning now.

And experts at Driving Test Success told motorists they can clear windscreens by activating their fan.

In a TikTok video, the motoring experts said drivers can then turn the fan to normal once the windscreen is clear.

The captions read: "Frozen windscreen? Put the temperature on high.

"Put the front windscreen fan on max. The ice will start to melt from the heat.

"Wipe away excess water and return the fan to normal."

The video racked up thousands of likes, with many praising the "magic" tip.

One said: "Wow magic the ice is gone."

But some pointed out it'll be more costly to do it this way.

A user posted: "Wastes more fuel. Just get [out] and scrape it off you lazy so and so."

The experts weren't the only ones to suggest using the fan.

In another video, Clear View Driving said road users should use their de-mister before they start driving.

They said: "Now don't use your windscreen wipers or washers as that won't help. Turn on your front and rear de-mister.

"The rear de-mister also heats up your side mirrors in most new cars.

"But if the mirrors are not clear, make sure to clear them before you start driving."

The AA also encouraged road users to "turn on the warm air blower" and "heated mirrors" to clear frost cover quickly.
