I can keep mine from icing up only by making sure that the climate controls have the front defroster on, and then turn the fan up quite high to thaw, then keep it at half speed or better.
I usually juice up commercial winter washer fluid with pure isopropyl [not rubbing] a bit when it gets near zero and below, as then a shot of washer can almost always
de-ice them. The rears aren't as bad, but the electric defrost back there shuts off
after a few minutes.
Need electric wiper blades...
