As if we weren't already exhausted from dealing with flu season and dry skin, there's now harsh, icy weather on the way for most of the United States. And if you commute to work in a car, you know what that means!

When the temps drop below freezing, it's pretty much guaranteed you'll have to trudge outside, start the car so it begins heating up, and fumble around for your ice scraper so you can start clearing off your windows and, you know, actually see the road when you're driving.

But what if you don't have an ice scraper on hand? Maybe you just moved up north and are dealing with ice for the first time, or maybe you just don't know where the dang thing went since last winter.

Either way, don't panic—a brilliant mind over on Reddit came up with an alternative solution using a kitchen item most people have on hand: plastic food containers.

User castewar posted this video in r/lifehacks demonstrating his nifty trick for scraping ice off his car window using a plastic food container just big enough to fit in his hand. He suggests skipping purchasing that round ice-scraper advertising on Facebook, and just rifling through your plastic food container drawer instead. In literally five seconds, he scrapes off every bit of ice, making his window see-through again. Genius!

One commenter makes a fair point: the ice he's working with in this video isn't the heaviest, so who knows how this hack will hold up after a major blizzard or ice storm. But next time you're stranded without an ice scraper and need to get on the road ASAP, grab one of your plastic food containers and give this trick a shot—it could save your morning.
