How to Unfreeze a Car Door
1. Use an Ice Scraper
If just your car’s handle is frozen, an ice scraper should do the trick. If you don’t own an ice chipper, you can use a credit card or a similar plastic object.
2. Pour Warm Water
Try pouring lukewarm water over the frozen handle, door lock, or door frame. Don’t use hot water, or you could wind up with a shattered windshield due to the drastic temperature difference.
3. Blow With a Hair Dryer
If you own a hair dryer that doesn’t require an electrical outlet, or can get your hair dryer outside with an extension cord, you’ll be able to use this helpful beauty tool to melt the frost on your car.
4. Buy a Lock De-Icer
Fortunately, there are products you can buy that will help speed up the de-icing process. Most auto shops and big box stores carry lubricants, such as a de-icer spray or a lock de-icer, that will allow you to melt the ice on your car with ease.
