Way To De-Fog Your Windshield

Winter’s here, and for lots of us, that means dealing with a foggy windshield…

 

Full of condensation when we go to start our cars. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t take that long for your defroster to clear your windshield, but if you’re harried and already late for work, that extra time waiting can feel like an eternity. And we don’t want you driving around through a half-obscured windshield like a dingus.

 

Luckily, I have figured out a handful of easy tricks that will help you blast fog off the inside of your windshield in half the time. These aren’t old wives’ tales – this is science.

 

Thus, using a series of rigorous scientific experiments that would satisfy the evidence lust of any mechanical engineer, I tested all the different air conditioning settings you’ve probably got in your car to find the absolute quickest setting for blasting away fog.

 

Now, we should note: This is defogging the inside of the windshield. Defrosting, or removing frozen ice from the outside of the windshield, is a different matter altogether – one that you should use an ice scraper and never ever use hot water to resolve.

Anyway, here’s the heater setting that clears fog the fastest:

  • Defroster fan on highest setting
  • Temperature control on its hottest
  • A/C turned on
  • Recirculate turned off
  • Crack your windows
