I had been waiting for frost on my windshield so I could try that old Rubbing alcohol and water trick on the windshield to instantly defrost your windshield. It did not work! I had a feeling it wouldn’t, but I wanted to try it. I’m always a bit skeptical of these “tricks”. People post and re-post that sort of thing, but I rarely, if ever, hear of anyone trying them and what the outcome was. So there you have it, I tried, it failed.
On a brighter note today is February 1! For the first time EVER I tried, at least, one new thing each and every day for an entire month! So I celebrated with a short fun video of that new thing! Some were silly, some were dumb, but we still had fun.
In case you missed something along the way here’s a run down of my new things I did or tried in January!
