As people in most parts of the country continue to shiver through what feels like an incredibly long winter, one clever Aussie has come up with a way to save herself time in the mornings by unearthing a hack to prevent her car windscreen from becoming icy overnight.

Instead of forking out money on de-icer or attempting to scrape away the ice, the young woman used an everyday household item to prevent ice from forming on her car’s windscreen overnight. In a video posted to social media, Bianca shared that she simply placed a towel over the glass the night before.

The following morning, she pulls the frosty-looking towel off the windscreen to reveal a frost-free windscreen, ready for a quick escape from the driveway. “Towel the night before, you’re welcome,” Bianca, who lives in Melbourne, Vic, said.

Just this week, millions of Aussies shivered through another chilly week as colder and drier air spread across the country, with both maximum and minimum temperatures falling “well below average”.

On Thursday, Tasmania recorded its lowest July temperature on record and the second-lowest minimum temperature for any time of year with –13.5°C at Liawenee.

Big stretches of the Outback received a drenching, causing the risk of flooding to dirt roads, and road and rail closures.

Many Aussies came forward to thank Bianca for unearthing the life hack, with one saying it “works a charm”.

Another night shift worker thanked her for sharing, saying it’s a “game changer”.

“This is the life hack I desperately needed. I’m pouring water over my car windows & usually not quick enough, so it freezes before I can drive," said a third.
