"So, I do this video every year. If you have a windshield that is frosted over – make sure to put your visors down, so it stops the airflow and it creates a faster defrost on your windshield.
"If you ever have a sheet of ice on your car or when it's frosted – put the [sun visor] down. Otherwise, you can feel the air come straight up over it.

At the time of writing, the clip has racked up more than 2.7 million views as thousands of viewers flocked to the comments to praise the neat trick.
