Frozen Doors

I was extremely agitated this morning when both my car doors wouldn't open because they were frozen shut. And to make matters worse I can't pull my other car out of the garage because the frozen one is parked right behind it. The locks are working but the mechanism is jammed up and won't open - and I beat the hell out of the thing trying.

I suppose I have 3 options right now
  1. Wait until Spring

  2. Throw a brick through the window

  3. Have it towed 10 feet down my driveway so I can get my other car out

Bummer...

Extension cord and hairdryer.

Two words: propane torch

Rachel has the best idea, although warm water is a decent substitute if you are too far away from a plug.

Jeff,

Forget the hairdryer!

Get a bunch of bloggers over at your place and I'm sure we can come up with enough hot air to take care of the problem!

Yeah...Springs sounds good ;) Although, if it had anything to do with chocolate, I'd totally have to go the brick route :D

I already tried the heat gun route but it didn't work.

I'm so tempted to go the brick route but I like John's idea - BURN THAT MOTHER TO THE GROUND!

heh...

Just poor warm water on it. It's also good for the windows instead of chipping inches of ice.

I use warm water. I also keep a handy, dandy spray can of "Lock De-Icer" around. They are really small and can fit into coat pockets, purses, etc.

The de-icer works great!
