It's winter and I'm living in Minnesota. That means when I wake up in the morning, ice and frost is going to be on the windshield of my car - eventually. So far, the winter has been rather temperate. It was only this morning that I was actually able to test out this ice scraper.
First off, it has a decent amount of weight to it - perfect for when you want to put more oomph behind those thick sheets of ice. But, it's still light enough as to not wear you out right away.
The scraper itself is without those annoying grooves that make it look like a set of claws went to work on your windshield. Thank goodness! It's a nice, solid piece that easily took off this morning's frost. Of course, the real test will occur once the snows start falling and, trust me, they are on their way.
The handle is very comfortable and is not made of the really hard plastic that was so common in the scrapers of the 80s and 90s. It is a nice rubber, so your hand has some cushioning.
The cloth itself did very well in helping me clean my dashboard of the dust that inevitably accumulates. And I can easily fold it up and stash it in the compartment of my door - invisible to the eye. But, it's certainly not an eyesore - yet. I will put a lot of use in to this cloth.
This would be a very good stocking stuffer for people who live in the colder regions of the country.
