Autumn is almost here. This means that the temperatures will drop and the fog will invite itself to your windshield. Unless, of course, you use a few simple techniques.
Allowing 10 more minutes in the morning to defog your windshield is fine, but it is possible to avoid this by applying a few actions on a daily basis.
First of all, it’s important to remember that fog comes from humidity in a car’s cabin. To avoid having the front window completely fogged up, so you have to try to get rid of all that moisture.
An old-fashioned technique consists, for example, in placing newspaper on the floor and change it regularly. You can also install a sock filled with kitty litter on the dashboard. Finally, the more classic solution, the humidity absorber in the passenger compartment.
Prepare the windshield
Fighting humidity is one thing, preparing your windshield to avoid fogging is a second. There are several techniques such as the use of alcohol, inside and outside (against frost).
But above all, a clean windscreen is essential to prevent fogging. Even if it is not pleasant, it is therefore important to keep your windows clean from the inside.
A classic demisting
You haven’t had time to do all this and the fog is preventing you from seeing properly? It is always possible to activate the demisting function fully and wait a few minutes.
Air conditioning in heating mode is also a great way to get rid of water particles on the windows. The latter dries the air and warms the passenger compartment, two in one!
