Halfords Night Before Deicer
Advantages: The spray bottle has its uses.......
Disadvantages: Not worth the £3.
With the cold weather well and truly upon us I thought it may be appropriate to write this review now. That isn't because I am using this product to help me out on the icy mornings. No, this is because I used the halfords Night Before De0icer last year with very limited results. Take it as a warning, really, that this product is as much use as a chocolate fireguard, anyway.....
The Halfords Night Before De-icer is designed to do pretty much what it says on the handy plastic spray bottle. It is designed with the driver in mind, keeping the ice and frost at bay during the night, leaving you with an ice-free windscreen so you can easily drive the car in the morning without having to scrape and spray your way to a clear screen. The spray is simple to apply. I used to apply this spray at night if the car was getting left on the driveway. Application was simple due to the trigger action spray. The solution is quite thin, and protection against ice forming is given, provided the temperature doesn't fall below -⁯25°C. The packaging also states that it 'prevents frost bonding to windscreens'. Quite a bold claim, but would it be able to live up to it?
I applied the spray liberally and returned to my car the next day. My windscreen appeared to be as frozen as I would expect without application of the product. I thought that maybe the ice would clear very easily, as the product would prevent it from forming hard over the glass, but I were wrong. The windscreen wipers were actually stuck solid, a result of the spray in my opinion. My view was that the spray had actually had a negative impact on keeping frost and ice at bay, and for around £3 for the bottle I were quite annoyed.
Halfords do sell a lot of good quality car cleaning products. Unfortunately their Night Before De-icer offers no comfort to the user. I were constantly left with frozen windscreens and as much hard work de-icing as ever. Ultimately I must say this product doesn't work, and I totally agree with the other reviewers that have rated this product 1 out of 5 stars. I wouldn't be surprised if it had a rating of ZERO, but the lowest score I am able to give is 1, so one star out of 5 it is for the Halfords Night Before De-icer.
Summary: Not worth the money, a waste of time.
