People are only just realising there’s a way to stop your windscreen icing up overnight… and it doesn’t cost a thing | The Sun

ICED-up windscreens may be frozen out forever after driversdiscovered a genius hack to stop frost in its tracks.

Incredibly, the clever trick only requires a common household item.

And what's more, it won't cost you a penny.

But by placing a towel over your windshield before a cold night draws in will leave the glass totally frost-free.

The video, that's racked up over 7.2 million views and 390,000 likes, got people talking.

Some were left in awe at the hack, with one noting: "Love it."
