Go easy on the scraper

Like we talked about in our last blog, ice buildup is sometimes impossible to prevent on your car. However, if a storm rolls through and you find yourself scraping ice off your car, here are some ways to get ice off your car without damaging your vinyl wrapping:

  • Use luke-warm water: pouring luke-warm water on your car and then lightly scraping it can help you get ice off without damaging your wrapping. However, if the water is too cold, it may just freeze. If it’s too hot, you risk cracking your windshield.


  • Use de-icer: If you don’t mind spending a little extra money, de-icer may be a great tool for you.
  • Use your defroster: make sure you immediately start your car and turn on your defroster when you go out to scrape off your car. This will make the ice softer and easier to get off.


If you follow these tips, you should be well on your way to getting ice off your car without damaging your vinyl wrap.


Avoid road salt

There isn’t much that’s more damaging to your car’s vinyl wrap than road salt. As you drive over road salt, it can get kicked up onto your car’s body and will begin to erode the vinyl wrap. If you tend to use road salt for your driveway, try finding another method of melting ice and keeping your driveway safe.
