While driving, especially if the car has multiple passengers, through our breathing or even just by talking, the hot air from our breath coming into contact with the cold glass, due to low outdoor temperatures, creating condensation that quickly steams up the windows. The issue is obviously much more prevalent in the winter months due to the cold weather cooling the glass, however, it can sometimes happen on a particularly cool night in the spring or summer months, too.

There is actually an easy method that can provide some immediate relief and can prevent the inevitable fog from building up on our windows and windshield in the future. By simply applying this method, we can quickly say goodbye to fogged up windows in the winter and drive our cars without having to deal with the obstructing condensation.
