How do you keep moisture off your car windows in the winter?

Is there a good way to keep moisture off my car windows during the winter? It makes them fog up. If possible, I’d like to keep the windows clear and free of frost and steam.

Moisture buildup on car windows is common and frustrating. The cause may vary depending on your area, but the cure is always the same: Keep your car dry.
Luckily, you can use these tips to keep moisture off your car windows in the winter:
  • Dehumidify your car. Aside from online products that can keep your cabin’s air dry, you can also fill a sock with kitty litter and hang it in the car to soak up any excess moisture in the air.
  • Use the AC. Besides pushing cold air into the cabin, your AC can also blow hot air. Using it at a warmer temperature can help keep the cabin dry without making you too cold.
  • Clean your windows. Dirt and dust particles can stick to your window and collect moisture, making your windows fog up faster. Keeping your windows as clean as possible is an easy way to prevent moisture buildup.
All in all, keeping your car dry and controlling the temperature can help you prevent moisture from accumulating on your car windows.
Remember, while foggy windows are irritating, winter driving conditions are more dangerous. Slow down when you drive, stock up on safety supplies, and make sure you have reliable roadside assistance in case you have any mechanical problems on the road.
