6 Best Ice Scraper 2021 | The Sun UK

THE winter months have plenty to recommend them – snow, hot chocolate, ice skating – but a few nuisances, too.

Namely: ice on our windshields. We've rounded up the best ice scrapers so you can remove ice (and other muck on your windows) with ease.

An ice scraper isn't the most exciting item to purchase, but it's an absolute essential to get you through any cold snap. More than that: it's practically a legal obligation, since front and rear windscreens need to be cleared of ice and snow before you set off on your journey.

While we've all used an old CD or credit card to de-ice our windshields in an emergency, a decent ice scraper will do the job without any damage to the glass – and hopefully faster, too.

A de-icer spray – or a homemade equivalent made with isopropyl alcohol and dish soap – will also make the job easier.

Leave it on for a couple of minutes before starting with the ice scraper.

From telescopic designs to those with hand-warming mitts, there are a range of ice scrapers available, starting at just a couple of pounds apiece.

1. Swedish Ice Scraper

  1. (AD) Swedish Ice Scraper ICE06 6mm Black with Neoprene Holder, £12.99 at Amazon – buy here

We never thought we'd appreciate the design of an ice scraper, but then we saw this stylish – and sturdy – version from Swedish Ice Scraper, which is made from recycled acrylic glass with a neoprene holder.

Available in three colours – black, white and yellow – it boasts sharpened edges that are diamond polished and a plough-shaped blade for quicker, more efficient ice-clearing, and to access hard-to-reach corners.

Fans are impressed by its performance; one writes: 'I noticed that my windshield was clear and I'd made mincemeat of two side windows. It just sticks to the glass like glue and slices the ice off like its not even there.

'Odd, it doesn't shove or break the frost or ice, it's like its separating the glass and ice at an atomic level'.


  1. (AD) MATCC Ice Scraper Mitt, £11.98 at Amazon – buy here

Anyone who's forgotten their gloves ahead of an ice scraping session will attest that this waterproof, fleece-lined mitt is a sound investment to get you through the winter months.

It features a textured handle you can grip onto easily, and a fluted plastic blade – and it won't just keep your hand warm in the cold. The scraper works well, too.

'Standard scraper, pretty good compared to some I’ve used in the past with a glove. Decent quality plastic for the job coming from an individual that works with polymers', writes one reviewer.

  • Ice Scraper-Squeegee, £3.99 at Lakeland – buy here

Cheap, cheerful and effective, this ice scraper squeegee is a 2-in-1 tool that gets rid of ice, with a hard scraper edge and squeegee blade.

Reviewers think it's great – and not only for ice scraping. Some swear it's indispensable for cleaning the shower or any DIY interiors needs.

4. Halfords

'Used this during a heavy freeze in Glasgow for the first time in the last few days (early Jan 2021). It got really tough ice off the car better than any scraper I had used before'.
