atch 12's mari nelson talked with a tech at safelite repair that says that he often repairs windsheilds that have been cracked due to not defrosting your windshield properly. how can this happen mari? i'm standing outside in medford to give you a live look at the fog. sometimes you can have small rock chips in your windshield that you may not have even noticed before. those cracks or chips in your windshield make it easy for your defroster to really expand those cracks and make them even worse. using an ice scraper is the best, but you can't just use anything to scrape the ice off your car--that can that if you are going to scrape the ice of your windshield, you need to be using a regulations scraper. that means one that you buy from the store for the sole purpose of scraping ice off your windshield. "don't use cd cases, don't use your cell phone case. don't use anything other than that. odds are, you're going to scratch your nature ... you don't want to scratch your windshield." aaron told me he's seen a lot of scratched and scraped windsheilds after people tried to use something other than an ice scraper. he said using a de-icing spray is also an option. [e16]windshield care with frost-tag you can buy both of those things at any auto parts store. de-icer is made with just a couple simple own. live in medford, mari nelson, newswatch 12. [e17]arson
