DO NOT bang on, beat on, etc with your hand or other objects on any glass to try to remove the ice! Period! It can and will crack! Especially if you have any chips in it already. This includes back glass, door glass etc.
DO NOT pour hot water on chips - it will make them run (spread)
DO NOT put sheets, blankets, etc over the glass. All that will do is freeze them to your glass, get stuck, make it worse and really no way to get it off safely.
DO NOT run your back glass windshield wipers constantly.
DO NOT run your windshield wipers when blocks of ice are frozen to them.
DO turn your vehicle on and let it melt the ice itself via defrost setting, heat on dashboard, etc. Lock your car up and wait inside your house/office staying warm! Yes you will waste gas, but that is less expensive then replacing your glass!
DO use PLASTIC ice scrapers, but always be gentle and patient, as this can cause damage as well. (Dollar General, pack of 3 for $1-$2)
DO pour water not HOT, on your mirrors to remove the ice.
