When it’s Colder Outside than Inside Your Vehicle 

When it begins getting cold outside, our first instinct is to turn up the heat when we jump into our vehicle. But actually, that is not the most helpful way to deal with foggy windows when it is cold outside. Instead, lower the temperature inside your vehicle rapidly by turning on the defrost vent with cool air and cracking a window, don’t turn on the heat! This will make the inside of your vehicle cooler and help reduce the fog. Also, turn on your vehicle’s rear window defogger to help clear up the back window.

When it’s Warmer Outside than Inside Your Vehicle 

When the temperature and moisture level outside are greater than inside your vehicle, moisture will condense on the exterior of the vehicle’s glass. The trick is to increase the temperature on the inside of the vehicle to accumulate less moisture on the outside. For a quick fix, use your windshield wipers. Turn down your AC to the lowest setting to increase the temperature without it becoming too uncomfortable. Also leave your recirculation off, to help clear your foggy windows.
