Cooling a window down with dry ice or liquid nitrogen


#1

Was thinking of using dry ice or liquid nitrogen to spray down a hot window to instantly cool it to make cleaning on hot days easier. Anyone try anything like this?


#2

No, not unless you want broken glass.

Not to mention the cost factor.


#3

Just a tad overkill I think…


#4

Start earlier, or later


#5

As Steve said the glass will crack if it’s annealled/float or laminate and likely shatter if it’s toughened


#6

Never had had a window that wasn’t able to be cleaned due to heat.

Planning ahead helps.


#7

As others have already stated it’s probably not a good idea. I think a temp change that fast could/would be disastrous.


#8

Get faster and use more water.


#9

Get one of those whole house bug sprayer tents and put it around the house.

Then get a bunch of air conditioners.

You’re welcome.


#10

Really though, maybe slop some plain water on first? Black glass is a real PITA.


#11

Are you serious ? !!


#12

I use Sorbo Glide. Has two purposes: Friction Reducer and an anti drying agent.
I use it almost all year around because it makes solution slippery.

I’d like to see the video!
