If circumstances permit, I find the best way to make an icy aerocraft operational is to start it up and crank up the heat and all defrost controls. After the aerocraft is running at operating temperature, apply de-icing fluid to the important or problematic areas. This would include headlamps and headlamp washers, washer jets, windscreen and wipers and the perimeter of all frozen doors and boot lid. Open and close the doors a few times to shake remaining ice loose. Then move off runway. Store in hanger or large garage if possible. Avoid operating windows or sunroof unless well thawed. Check side mirrors for interference due to ice in case adjustments are required. You can pour the de icer right from the jug or reuse an old empty spray bottle. Works better if pre-warmed to room temperature. Over and out.
