CarPlan Blue Star De Icer
Advantages: WOrks quickly, great price
I don't like to get caught out when it comes to de icer and as soon as a little frost strikes the supermarkets whip out their deicers at full price, knowing that we all need to defrost our car on those cold wintry mornings. I instead, like to stock up on de icer either before the real chill starts or when it is starting to get a little milder coming into the SPring, in preparation for the next year and I usually pick up a handful of these Carplan Blue deicer for £1 in Poundland, for a 600ml aerosol containers, which is exceptionally good value for the product in question.
This de icer does stand out on the shelf due to the blue/white colouring, which if I'm honest, looks a little on the tacky side, but I don't care as long as it works - which it does. On the front of the canister, it claims that it 'melts ice fast' but also that it 'operates down to - 15C'. Now, thankfully neither my husband nor I have ever had to use this in minus 15C temperatures, but there have been plenty of minus temperatures to still try it on.
It is easy to spray this canister on the frozen part of the car window, and once sprayed I get into the car and get the engine going to get the car warmed as well, with all the blowers at work, and within a short period of time, the combination has worked well to clear the windows. There have been plenty of times I have used this product on a cold winter night, coming out of the supermarket etc and being met with a frozen car window, and a little spray and a little engine heat, and the car is clear.
I have never had any problems with this spray. It doesn't smell terrific but I doubt there would be too many that do smell nice. At £1 this is a great value de icer that really does work at normal winter temperatures and using alongside a car that is warming up, it does work fast at defrosting the windscreen, and letting you get onto your journey, especially when you don't have a lot of time in the morning. I dont' see why you would pay more for a deicer when this one does everything you need at a very good price!
Summary: A great, well priced de icer
