How to Defog Your Car Windshield

imgresGetting in your car and having fogging windows can be a stressful and an annoying situation at any point of the day. Whether it be early in the morning or not, it slows down your commute and can make you late. Luckily, we have a few tips that let you defog your car’s windshield in seconds.

  • One of the more common times in which fogging occurs is during cold and rainy days. It is the difference between the temperature and humidity, inside and outside of the vehicle, which is a primary cause of the fog.
  • To allow your car windshield to defog, we suggest that you let air circulate freely throughout the vehicle. You can simply lower some of the windows and within a few minutes your car will defog.
  • If this doesn’t work, apply the hot air from your car’s heating system directly onto the window. Just crank up the defrosters and you should be good to go.
  • Besides the hot air, you can actually also use the air condoning and cold system of your car. Although it can work, the moisture will evaporate slower because cold air can’t hold as much moisture as warmer air.
  • Rubbing your hands on glass to remove fog temporarily, but it will leave a dirty look. It is suggested you use a mixture of soap and water before cleaning the windows. After cleaning the windows, pass a dry cloth around to remove any of the solution.

This happens when all four of your wheels lose contact between the tire and the road. It is suggested that you don’t brake abruptly or turn the wheel. Instead, simply release the gas pedal slowly keep steering straight until you gain traction with the road. If you are in a situation where you must break, lightly apply your foot to the brake pedal.
