Methods for De-Fogging Your Windshield

We’ve all been behind the wheel in less than stellar weather conditions when suddenly our windshield begins to fog, heavily, and before you know it, you can’t really see anything. Regardless of whether you’re going 10 miles per hour or 65, this can be particularly troublesome. Instead of contorting in strange ways behind the wheel just to see a slight bit, take a look at a few of our suggestions for what to do when your window fogs up at the wrong time.

Dry It Out with Cold

One of the best ways to de-fog your windshield is by running the air conditioner, especially when temperatures outdoors are above freezing. While putting on the air conditioner in cold temperatures may not sound entirely ideal, you can elect to tick the air a bit towards the warmer side if you want to be more comfortable while the fog abates.

Heat Works Too

Another option for clearing pesky windshield fog is by running the heat through your defrosters. This approach works especially well when catching the fog right as it begins to develop. You’ll want to put the defroster on the “high” and set the temperature relatively hot. Be sure to turn off your car’s recirculation setting and crack your windows slightly. This should see you driving down the road with a very clear windshield.

 

Next time your windshield fogs up, don’t panic! Utilize the methods listed above and you should see that fog scattering to the edges of your windshield in no time flat. If you require any other auto glass help, always trust Wisconsin Windshield Centers.
