How can I prevent frost inside my car windows?

Winter is around the corner, and one of my biggest pet peeves is getting frost inside my car windows! So how can I prevent that from happening to my car this winter?

Answer
When frost appears inside your car window, it is due to moisture trapped inside your car when the temperature drops. This is a common but understandably annoying problem that we can help you with!
If you are lucky enough to have garage parking, leave your windows cracked when you get out of the car to give water vapor a place to escape.
Another option is to point your heat vents at the windows before you leave your car. If you have a remote car starter, the frost on the windows will melt away after a few minutes once you start the vehicle. If you don’t have a remote starter, start your vehicle with the heater on and close the door before you remove the snow from your car. By the time you clean your car off, the frost should be gone.
If you are short on time, use a hand warmer to wipe the frost from your window. Some heated gloves are electric, and some have a pocket with a space for a hand warmer.
While you are getting ready for winter, don’t forget to make sure to have a solid towing plan for your car. If you’re looking for roadside assistance at a great price, try Jerry.
