A mother has revealed the life hack she ‘can’t live without’ as winter takes its toll on us and our daily routines.

Many people might be setting their alarms five minutes earlier each day as the festive season begins to make time to defrost or de-ice the car, but young mother Chloe has a trick to cut the amount of time this task takes you.

As the cold mornings and nights draw in, Britain has already had its first snow of the season and people are beginning to wonder if temperatures will drop low enough for a white Christmas.

Chloe, who goes by @chloemart15 on TikTok, introduced her ‘little life hack’ with a clip of her filling a shopping bag with water from the sink.

‘This is super quick and easy,’ she said, ‘all you need to do is put lukewarm water from the tap straight into a plastic bag.’

She started by filling a carrier bag with lukewarm water from the sink Running the bag up and down the windows made the frost disappear seamlessly

You then see her dragging the bag up and down the windscreen of her car.

The icy layer disappears with ease and no arduous scrubbing is required.

‘It literally takes five seconds, if that,’ Chloe added, before reiterating: ‘I cannot live without it.

‘Try it, guys, you will not regret it.’

The instructive clip now has over 10 million views. 

But Chloe did urge caution, being sure to say you want to use lukewarm water to avoid damaging any of your car’s windows.

Too great a sudden change in temperature can damage glass by causing small cracks.

Especially as you will likely be doing this repeatedly, not being careful could lead to you waking up to a smashed windscreen rather than an icy one. 

If that is putting you off, experts have also recommended a list of simple and free tricks to avoid your car freezing overnight.

If you commute after sunrise, which is admittedly fewer people than ever over winter, see if you can park your car facing east in the evening so that the sun’s rays strike the windscreen as early as possible. 

If this is possible, there is often no need to deice.

Another trick involves spraying a mixture of water and vinegar onto the windshield in the evening.

The solution can act as a blanket of protection for your car overnight, preventing the build-up of ice from forming to begin with because vinegar’s freezing point lower than that of water.

The homemade de-icer can be made using three parts vinegar to one part water in a spray bottle.

And finally, if you can spare a bedsheet, spreading it over the screen can help to stop ice forming.

You can use the wipers to keep the sheet in place and be sure to keep a plastic bag or something similar in the car to place it into once it has done its job.
