'Miracle Treatment' To Keep Frost Off Car Windows

'Miracle Treatment' To Keep Frost Off Car Windows

Few things on the planet are worse than having to get up for work and go out in the cold to de-ice your car windows.

But that may now be a thing of the past - you can save your time, effort and also, more importantly, you can give yourself an extra 10 minutes in bed.

A new treatment that you use on your windows has been made available to motorists and apparently makes your windscreen immune to frost.

It's been used on planes traditionally, but thankfully, we can now use it to our advantage as well.

The solution - known as Duxback - stops ice from forming on your screen for up to six months. Not only that, but it improves visibility by 35 percent when its raining.

It also claims that at 40 miles per hour, you won't even need to wipers as the water just 'falls off' the window.

Halfords call it a 'miracle treatment' - so it must be good.

The product description on its official website reads: "Duxback is a revolutionary glass treatment that creates a 'hydrophobic' effect on automotive glass. Originally developed for aviation and applied to Boeing cockpit glass, a Duxback treatment greatly improves safety when driving in pouring rain especially at night.

"When driving over 40mph, rain water will be blown straight off the glass, no need for wipers! In wintertime, ice will either not stick to the glass or will be much easier to remove. Research has shown that visibility is improved by 35% when driving in pouring rain.

"Furthermore a driver's ability to identify a small object when driving in foul conditions is improved by 25%. A 25% improvement in reaction time is 58 feet at 40 MPH. Enough to save a life!"

One car kits cost £24.99 on the website and it includes the brushes you need, as well as wipes and obviously the treatment itself.

If, like me, you don't trust yourself with anything that grown up, you can also book into branches of Halfords and other car centres.

You might already be aware of this if you were up early this morning.

Last night, temperatures hit lows of -9.9C in parts of the UK. Although temperatures are set to rise slightly this week, we have been warned of a cold winter ahead, with parts of the UK already hit by snow earlier this month.
