I guess this isn't really a baby tip, but when you have the kids already strapped into their carseats in the middle of winter, and the windshield is frosted over, anything that gets you moving quicker is a good idea!

What I did was fill a small spray bottle that I bought at the Dollar Store with windshield washer fluid good to 45 degrees below zero.

We start the car, have the heat settings on defrost, high and hot and I spray the windshield quickly before strapping in the kids.

Once I am done, the ice scrapper does a quick job of any remaining ice.

Another idea: Cover your windshield with an old bed sheet when snow or ice is in the forecast.

Hold the sheet in place, by closing it in the door on each side. In the morning, just peel the sheet off the windshield.

Thanks to Cathy for this Frugal Baby Tip!
