How do you prevent car windows from fogging up?

My windows get super foggy, especially at night or when it rains. What should I be doing to stop my car windows from fogging up while I’m on the road?

Foggy windows can be irritating and dangerous! Especially in the winter, visibility is essential to safe driving. Luckily, you can use any of these tips to stop your windows from fogging up:
  • Clean your windows and windshield. Dirty glass tends to fog up more easily.
  • Put silica gel packets near your windshield.
  • Take drinks or wet items out of your car.
  • Leave a bowl of kitty litter in the car—ideally near the windshield.
If none of that works, it may be time to see a mechanic. While it’s uncommon, foggy windshields could be the result of refrigerant or other problems in your air conditioning system.
