    With the cold weather what's everyone using for scraping the frost off of their windscreens? I'm having problems getting mine clear. I used my Halfords discount card but it only got 20% off.

    Hot tap for me. Never once had a problem with it, even on glass with pre-existing bullseyes and cracks.

    Warms the glass, as well as melts the ice, so removes mist from the inside, too.

    I'd imagine water from the cold tap will suffice, me? I do have electric heated screen and the car is garaged .
    I do remember years back a guy put some hot kettle water on his windscreen of an allegro, the screen cracked! Modern screens may have improved but I'd still not suggest very hot water.

    I normally park in the garage so it rarely freezes, I also have a heated driveway, if I park outside I pour water over it from the cold tap which averages at 17 celcius, so quite warm really. It is warm enough to melt the ice on the outside and stops the condensation turning into ice.

    Boil a full kettle. Clears the ice perfectly. Don't usually use it all so with whatever's left I'll just use it to top up the brake fluid
