These 6 tips will get rid of foggy car windows fast

So you can get back on the road safely
If you drive frequently, you know what we’re talking about: your windshield fogs up right when you start your car. Which makes sense now that it’s getting a colder and more humid outside. Cold air traps less moisture than warm air. But we still want to get rid of those foggy windows as quickly as possible so we can get back on the road safely. These 6 tips will help you do just that.

1.Clean your car’s grill
It’s important to keep the grill on your car clean. These often get clogged up due to filth and leaves. If the rain can’t wash it away, there’s a good chance it’ll end up in your car. And we don’t want that because it’ll fog up the car’s windows.

2. Heat on and windows open
Don’t turn on the vent recirculation button, instead keep it off. If you do that, your car won’t bring in new air. Turn the heat on because warm air traps more moisture than cold air. In the meantime, opening the windows can help release humidity.

3. Air conditioning on
Most people only turn the air conditioning on to keep cool on warm summer days. But it can also be helpful in the winter. The AC is in fact a more effective way of getting rid of humid air than turning the heat on. Anyway, it’s always a good idea to turn on the AC every once in a while, this will help prevent odors and bacteria buildup.

4. Keep your car dry
In The Netherlands, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll get soaking wet in the rain before getting into your car every once in a while. In that case, put your wet jacket, bag, umbrella, and other belongings in the trunk. This will prevent your seat cushions from absorbing any moisture. Once you’re home, it’s a good idea to open your windows for a bit of ventilation. That is, if you have a dry place to park or a garage, of course.

5. Dehumidifier
There are special dehumidifying products, like dehumidifiers or special cushions. You can buy these to get rid of humidity in your car. And for cat owners, kitty litter in an old sock could also help.

6. Shampoo
Rub a bit of soap or shampoo on the inside of the windshield to prevent fog. Obviously not too much, otherwise you won’t be able to see the road properly.”
