PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! As temperatures continue to drop, some parts of the South West could see lows of 4C tonight. The weather looks to be turning a little on the frostier side, which means the return of the worst of the seasonal chores - the daily scrape of the car windscreen. Whether you choose to painstakingly scrape the ice off with a battered and out-of-date debit card, spray it down with horrifically smelling de-icing spray, or you like to live dangerously and risk pouring hot water over the window, it is an annoying way to have to start your day. While it might be irritating, it is a necessary annoyance - driving with frosty windows can land you with a £100 fine and three points on your license, reports The Mirror. Well, what if it didn't have to be? Experts from Iceland, Lotus Car Rental, have revealed an incredibly clever and bizarre hack that should keep your windscreen from freezing over using a staple item from your kitchen.

According to experts, onions can break down frost when it first starts to appear on your windscreen. They recommend cutting an onion in half and rubbing it over your windscreen the night before you need to drive. While it might mean popping out at night in your pyjamas and dressing gown, it should prevent frost forming in the first place.

. Vinegar will also do the same job, so you could also spray your windows down with vinegar the night before. The experts explain that vinegar is often "used as a de-icer because its freezing point is much lower than water’s, meaning the water doesn’t have the chance to settle and freeze on top of the vinegar". Other tips to prevent ice buildup include covering your windscreen with a sheet, or cardboard to prevent it icing up in the first place. Naturally you can also use the old-fashioned debit car or de-icing liquid as well. Experts do remind drivers about the dangers of using hot water on cold windows, however. The experts warn: "It may sound obvious but it’s always worth mentioning that you should never pour boiling hot water onto your windscreen. While one in five of us have admitted to doing this, even pouring lukewarm water can cause car windows to crack, especially if they are already chipped. "Instead, pour some warm water in a ziplock bag and then rub the bag over your windscreen. This hack went viral on TikTok last winter because it takes the ice off in seconds!"
