Iowans, We’ve Been Scraping Frost Off Our Cars Wrong This Entire Time [VIDEO]
I have never seen someone use an ice scraper this way before and my mind is completely blown. There's no way this can be common knowledge and if it is, chalk me up as a moron. Does everyone know this? Where has this information been for the past 16 years I've been driving?
During the winter months in Iowa, at some point, you will have to scrape the frost that has frozen to your car's windshield and windows. If you are able to park your car in a garage overnight, you'll end up doing a lot less scraping. If you have to leave your car out overnight, you might be scraping the frost off your windshield every morning before you leave for work.
Scraping the frost off your car sucks. It always seems to be needed when you're running late, it's time-consuming, and everyone wishes it could be done faster. What if it could be done faster? There is a British woman on TikTok, named Charlotte Brown, who might've just discovered a faster way to get this done and save us all a lot of time.
Normally when scraping off my car, I just use the flat side and scrape away for as long as it takes. I don't believe I've ever seen anyone do it this way in my entire life. I definitely wasn't taught about this in driver's ed. Once again, I might just be an idiot but have you ever tried doing it this way?
You know the back side of the scraper, that normally has the ridges on it? I've always thought they were there for decoration or something. This lady is now showing us they have a functional purpose.

I'm lucky that I am able to park my car in a garage every night and haven't had to scrape any frost off of my car yet, this winter season. If you are someone who has to constantly scrape your car off in the morning, will you test this theory out and let me know how it goes? Look how fast she's able to get the frost off of her window.
This could be one of those internet things that looks awesome but doesn't really work but as far as I can tell, this looks pretty legit.
