AN expert mechanic has revealed his top tip for clearing your frozen windscreen – and you'll have the key tool in your wallet.

Motor whizz Scotty Kilmer also cautioned viewers on what not to do to remove ice during the biting winter months.

Posting to his TikTok channel @scottykilmerofficial, he said: "I'm going to tell why not to pour hot water on a windshield in cold weather.

"Yes, it melts the ice but it can also crack your windshield.

"And if you've got those little micro cracks from rocks in the windshield, the hot water can make them spread in an instant".

Scotty recommends two must-have tools to remove the pesky ice, and one will likely be in your back pocket.
