How do I dehumidify a car in the winter?

The inside of my car windows are always foggy when it snows. How do I dehumidify a car in the winter?

That can grow to be a pain! The most important step to avoiding fog is to keep your car windows clean. Dirt and dust particles can attract moisture that leads to foggy condensation. Using a car window cleaner can help clean the inside of your windows without damaging them.
Damp items in your vehicle can also increase the humidity and cause foggy window glass. Try to take out rain-soaked coats or even bottles of water when you exit your vehicle.
Use your climate controls to dry the condensation from your windows and clear humidity from your car. Use the defroster mode at a cold temperature to start with, then raise the temperature until the fog clears.
Doing both should help keep your windows clear and let you safely drive your vehicle in the winter. If you’re looking for some extra protection, consider a roadside assistance membership with Jerry.
