Lucky to have a garage, shop, or even a car starter; find yourself more thankful than anything. After last week's record-breaking 77 degrees in Bismarck, North Dakota; mother nature has reminded us all she is back in control and dropped us to downright frigid.

Got your attention yet? And get this, more than likely you already have it in your home. Who doesn't immediately go wait, the solution that I've needed my entire life may very well have been in my bathroom medicine cabinet my whole life. No Way?! Yes, way. Just think of ALL those years, coming out every morning, hoping to not slip to your death first as you make your way to the vehicle only to then bust knuckles with those cheap ice scrapers, a credit card or back in the day a CD case.

Recipe For Success

Here you go, Isopropyl or rubbing alcohol and water. You read that right. Rubbing alcohol was all that you needed all these years. We couldn't believe it either.

Spray the solution on the windshield and WATCH THE MAGIC. BAM. Ice disappears instantly. Here's our little tip of the day to make the 701 a little happier place this coming winter.
