Now we are not saying this is a safe way to defrost your windows, but it is quite funny...

One thing you can say about Mainer's is we are full of ingenuity! This was clear when Waldo County Deputy, Jon Shaw pulled over a car that seemed to be having trouble defrosting their windows.

The photo above shows two LIT candle sticks on the cars dash in a serious attempt to defrost. While it is unclear if this is illegal or not, it might be a little too dangerous.

We made a pros/cons/ list:


  • Smells good
  • Romantic
  • More convenient than car cigarette lighter
  • Warm


  • Firey death if one tips over or you crash
  • Public humiliation on social media
  • Car defrost still broken
