How To: Prevent Your Windows From Fogging Up

How To: Prevent Your Windows From Fogging Up

Hey everybody—Jeremy here from O’Reilly
Auto Parts to talk about how to keep your vehicle’s windows from fogging up. Before
I get into that, I’d like to give you the opportunity to subscribe to our channel, if
you haven’t already, so you don’t miss out on any of our new content. All right, let’s start with some basics:
any time the temperature of your windows is below the dew point outside, the moisture
inside your vehicle’s cabin will condense on the windows and cause them to fog up. In
a pinch, you can try turning on your heater to warm up the windows… cracking a window…
or turning on air conditioning to remove moisture from the air inside the cabin. But what I’ll be showing you today is a
way to prevent the fog from happening in the first place. If you apply an anti-fog product
to the inside of your windows, you won’t have to worry about it. Keeping your windows
clean is a good place to start, since it reduces surface area for moisture to settle on. It’s
also a good idea to clean the inside of your windows before you apply the anti-fog. All you need is your anti-fog product and
a 100% cotton cloth or paper towels. Apply a small amount of anti-fog to your cloth.
Wipe each window thoroughly, one section at a time.
It’s important to use the anti-fog ONLY on the inside of your windows.
Once you’ve wiped the entire inside surface of the windows you need to treat, do a final
wipe with the dry side of your cloth to buff out any streaks.
Reapply as needed. And you should be fog-free. If you prefer, anti-fog also comes in individually-wrapped
wipes that work the same way. And that’s it. Anything you need for this
or other jobs can be found at your local O’Reilly Auto Parts store or Our DIY videos are designed to help answer
questions we get in our stores every day. If you found this one helpful, subscribe to
