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

What I did was fill a small spray bottle 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 scraper does a quick job of any remaining ice.

Another idea: Cover your windshield with an old bedsheet 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!
