Things I Use My Truck Windshield Defroster For


10% - Defrosting my truck windshield
90% - Blasting it on full speed and heat to dry out wet and cold work gloves while I have the windows down so I don't roast myself.



Can you tell I'm stuck in my truck with nothing to do until a late delivery gets here?

I keep a bag of gloves on the dash. Wet one go on the defrost and I get a warm dry pair out of the bag.

I'll even put sealant there when the van is parked at a job in the winter. A little greenhouse effect.

Pre heating socks. There is nothing better than warm dry socks.
