Is there anything more painful than sitting in a freezing car waiting for your windshield to defrost as you're already running late? When your scraper is no match for the ice that's taken your car hostage, chemicals can come to the rescue. We found the best 4 car windshield de-icers to help free your windshield of ice, snow, and frost so you can get your visibility back and get on the road faster.
