Does your car windshield sometimes frost up in the winter? Meteorologist Ken Weathers has a tip that may help you clear up the frost quickly.

Step 1: Put on rubber gloves, then mix two parts rubbing alcohol with one part water. (Do not use hot water, Weathers says, because it may crack your windshield. Room temperature or cold water is fine.)

Step 2: Pour the mixture into an empty spray bottle.

Step 3: Spray the mixture onto your windshield, and watch the frost clear up!
