B. Open the air-conditioning to adjust the inner temperature of the car, which will eliminate the humidity and will soon thaw the frost or ice on the windshield.

C. You can spread a small quantity of glycerine or alcohol on the windscreen to prevent frosting or icing on the glass surface for a short period.

D. Mixing some washing up liquid into clean water and then mopping it on the inside of the windshield with a clean dishcloth.

Wipe the ?protective membrane? off with a clean wet dishcloth when the temperature has risen in the car.

E. If the windshield is covered by frost or ice while driving, you should stop the car to scrape it off and wipe it clean with a dry cloth. To ensure your safe driving please do not ignore it and continue driving or try to wipe off the frost/ice while driving.
