Say Goodbye to a Foggy Windshield with These 5 Tips!

No one likes driving with a foggy windshield. It limits your visibility, making it much more difficult to drive. Worse, it increases your risk of getting into an accident, especially at night.

Many drivers find themselves frantically wiping their windscreens with their sleeves or tissue paper or whatever absorbent material they could lay their hands on as soon as they see their windshields and windows fogging up. However, this doesn’t work at all.

Perhaps you’re one of those drivers who haven’t yet found a solution to your car fogging up. To help you out, Veteran Car Donations shares five ways of preventing car windshields and windows from fogging up in cold temperatures:

  1. Turn on the defroster when warming up your car.

Activate your defroster every time you warm up your vehicle. See to it that you set the temperature to high on the auto system, or full hot on the manual system. In case you’re using a remote starter on cold mornings, set the defroster the night before so you can easily remove fog from your windshield.

  1. Use an ammonia-based window cleaner.

An ammonia-based window cleaner can quickly remove fog buildup on your windshield. Use vertical or horizontal strokes to apply the window cleaner. Apply it to your windshield’s interior regularly.

  1. Apply shaving cream, too.

You may also apply shaving cream on your windshield’s interior. This will create a protective film on the inside that can stop fogging. Use two clean towels — one for wiping and another for removing the shaving cream.

  1. Switch to “fresh air” mode.

Check if your car’s heater or AC system is set in fresh air mode. Having it on recirculate mode will enable it to reuse moist or humid air, which increases the possibility of windshield fog.

  1. Have a specialist examine your HVAC system.

A defective HVAC system is one of the possible reasons why you’re having trouble preventing your car from fogging up. If you see fog on your windshield when you activate your car’s defroster, consult an HVAC specialist to fix the issue.


The Simplest Way to Get Rid of an Unwanted Car

Is your car fogging up the least of your concern? Are you more worried about how that vehicle is draining your finances with its never-ending series of repairs?

We at Veteran Car Donations are here to put a quick end to your main source of stress. We’ll gladly take that beater off your hands once you decide to donate it to us. When you do that, you’ll not only get to dispose of that vehicle quickly and at no cost to you, but you’ll also be extending a helping hand to the suffering veterans in your local community.

Our team will put your vehicle up for auction after fixing it, with the proceeds going to our veteran and military nonprofit partners. These IRS-certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are dedicated to improving the lives of former U.S. service members who are homeless, unable to find jobs, and suffering from disabilities as well as serious illnesses, including mental health disorders.

Our charity partners use the funding we give them to provide their beneficiaries with housing and financial assistance, employment and livelihood opportunities, family support, free quality health care and medical treatment, psychotherapy services, scholarships, and many other services meant to uplift their lives.

Donating to Veteran Car Donations will enable you to receive valuable rewards, such as getting entitled to claim the maximum tax deduction in the next tax season and getting a professional pickup and towing service from us anywhere in the country absolutely for free.

More valuable than these material rewards, you’ll get to experience the priceless joy and satisfaction of doing something that will help transform the lives of our nation’s heroes — those men and women who fought and risked their lives for us so we can live in freedom and peace.

We’re not choosy on the type and condition of the vehicle you intend to donate. We accept nearly all vehicle types,  including those that are no longer in good condition and won’t even start anymore.

It’s so easy to donate to us. We’ll take care of most of the work for you. Simply give us a call through our 24/7 toll-free hotline at 877-594-5822 and one of our donation specialists will walk you through our quick and simple donation process. You can also contact us here.
