When it’s time to embark on your commute, a frosted, foggy car can be more than a frustration — it can be a hazard to your visibility. Here are some quick tips to help you defrost your car and stay safe on the road.

 

If it’s warmer inside your vehicle and cooler outside

When you’re trying to stay warm in your car, but your windshield is fogging up, crank your heat to its maximum setting. Then, switch to AC to help draw moisture out of the air. Finally, disable any air recirculation, and crack your windows a bit to vent out the humidity. You can also use your windshield wipers to scrape away any fog or frost on the outside of your car.
