How to stop windshield from fogging up every morning ?

Anything I can do to stop it from happening ?

Slightly leave window open ?

Any idea ? Any product to help stop it ?

I use the wiper blade and that clear it up but hate that it mess up my windshield. Can't have whole car looking good with dirty windshield.

Thx.

If you have air conditioner, use it full blast directed towards windshield (fresh, not recirculated air).

Fog, or dew?

Either way, I have no clue

Cool avatar, btw.

CarPro has a product. Not sure how well it works:

CarPro Fog Fight, defogger, car window defogger, windshield anti fog

I think the Op is referring to the outside - since stating about wipers.

@ Wors, the product was highly sought after at first, but then:First Impressions: CarPro Fog Fight

Re: How to stop windshield from fogging up every morning ?

You do seem to have quite a quandary!

-Are no other vehicle surfaces being fogged/dewed upon?

-If not in too big of hurry...Blast away with the defroster.
(But then...there goes the plastic cowl getting water-spotted
from the dripping-wet wiper blade inserts)

-Park your vehicle with the business-end pointing East.

-Leave a little later in the morn.

Open both of the front doors, spread a beach towel across the windshield, tuck the ends of the beach towel into the vehicle, and close the doors to keep the towel in place. In the morning remove the towel and drive off. I see people use towels, cardboard, sheets, old shirts, etc.

The problem is too much moisture in the air in the cabin. Air con gives you dry air, so it helps absorb a bunch of that moisture. Open windows, don't use recirculated air.

P.S. you can use air con with the heating on high
