So what’s the story behind the video? The solvents in the alcohol and bug spray dissolve the coating on the windshield, allowing the salt to penetrate the crack and hide it. Contrary to what the video title states, this treatment does not repair the windshield; it only hides the problem. Any windshield with a crack this large needs to be immediately replaced, as your windshield is a vital part of your car’s safety features. While you might be tempted to do a quick DIY fix for windshield cracks, this sort of problem is best left to professionals, who will fix it right the first time, every time.
