How to Clear Up Your Foggy Windshield

Depending on the temperature outside, there are multiple methods on how to clear your foggy windshield. In the chilly, cooler weather, you're likely to experience the interior of your glass surfaces on your car fogging up. The condensation occurs due to the difference in temperature and humidity between the inside and outside of your vehicle. When you need the windows to be cleared up right away, the fastest way to do so is to lower the inside temperature so that the moisture stops building up.


Method #1 - Turn the defrost vent on WITHOUT heat, or opening the windows in cold weather is the fastest way to get rid of hazy windows. While it is effective, it isn't very comfortable for you or other passengers in the car. This method is recommended for when you need it cleared FAST. It's sometimes better to use the method below if it is uncomfortably cold outside.

Method #2 - You can warm the inside of the car and blow warm air across the windshield using the defrost setting. It will evaporate the excess moisture. Then you can follow up by blasting the AC and turning off the recirculation feature. As you can see, this method takes more time.
