Windows all steamy?

On those cold and rainy days there is nothing worse than a misty car windscreen that you cannot see out of.

Why does the windscreen fog up?
Put simply the window is cold and heavy with moisture and when you jump in with your warm breath, it quickly cools down creating more moisture which condenses on the nearest cold surface it can find: your car windows.

What can you do to solve this problem?
Turn on the air conditioner onto the demist cycle as this will work to remove the water vapor. Set the air conditioning onto warm and get toasty at the same time.

Stay Fuel efficient
Using the air conditioner in your car reduces fuel efficiency, so once the windscreen is demisted turn the air conditioning off.
