How Salt and Saliva use for breaking car glass windshield

Fact Check:

A video in heavy circulation online claims to demonstrate and warn people that Thieves use simple table salt and saliva to break your Car glass to have full access inside and attempt robbery. The breakthrough process of the car glass seen in the video is true, but the claim that simple table salt and saliva are used for the same is a hoax.

About the Video

Seen in the video is perhaps a thief in hand cuffs demonstrating an easy trick to break car glass. The man takes small pieces of alleged salt in his hand, makes them wet by saliva in his mouth, and then throws them at a near by car glass – thereby shattering it. Then a slight push on the shattered window removes the car glass completely, whereby a thief can have full access to the car. Quite a lot of people who watched the video in fact believed it is possible to breakthrough a car window glass with a handful of salt and saliva.

Not Salt and Saliva Breaking Car Glass

A close look at the video, after the man throws the material at window glass reveals the pieces falling off as it is, even after the impact. So the claim that simple table salt and saliva was used to break the car window glass is hoax. The man in the video has most probably used bits of hard ceramic material of a Spark Plug to break the car window. You can see a similar demonstration in another video shown below. The high density of the ceramic fragments is effective in breaking the glass windows. In the first video, the man is dampening the (probable) bits of ceramic material in his saliva possibly to make them wet so they produce less noise when they impact the glass.
