How to Stop Car Windows from Steaming Up

Hey guys Chris fix here and today I’m, going to show you how to prevent your windows from fogging up. Sure you could use products from the store to keep your windows from fogging up. But did you know you could find products around your house that will do the same thing In this? Video were going to test potatoes, baby shampoo hand, sanitiser and shaving cream against the store, bought, anti-fogging treatment so lets first go over.

Why windows get all foggy. Fog happens because theres a temperature change and because theres humidity, … right now its cold outside my body heat is warm and my breath is warm and its humid … and thats? What creates fog in the winter time.

In the summer time? It’s kind of the opposite. It’s warm outside …, but you turn your AC on on the inside. So it’s, cool on the inside and any of the moisture inside the car … is going to turn into fog on your windshield.

To get the glass foggy. I have a hot pot of water …. As you can see, the glass fogs up completely …, and this is our control test so that you know the glass will fog up.. Now I can go and clean off the glass .

.. and we will section off the window in 5 parts to test each defogger.. Now, with the window sectioned into 5 parts, … let’s, apply the products.. The first product we’re going to try is the Rain.X Anti Fog .

… The directions say just to put some on a towel … and just rub it right on the glass., Make sure you cover all of the glass … and then take a dry spot on the paper towel and lightly wipe. So it removes any streaking.

. So the top left square is the Rain.X.. The next product we’re going to use is shaving cream.. All you do with the shaving cream is get a little bit onto the glass … and then you work it in with a paper towel.

. I’m using a new paper towel, so we don’t contaminate. Again make sure you cover all the glass.. Now you buff off all of this. Until it’s clear. And eventually it get’s clean. This definately takes a little more effort, then using the Rain.

X …. Ok, our shaving cream on the top here is done.. We’ll, move down to the bottom corner. On the bottom corner. I’ll, be using an old scuba driving trick that I use for my mask.. If it keeps the mask from fogging up 60ft under water, It should work on my truck.

So we’ll just apply that again making sure we get it everywhere and then we’ll, get a clean paper towel and just lightly go over the top. So we remove any streaking, so its nice and clear. When your doing this, you don’t want to remove the layer you’re.

Putting on here. You just want to make sure you can see through the glass and its clear Now lets test the potato. So your probably thinking potato what the heck this is one of the urban legends as a scuba diver.

You’re suppose to be able to split a potato And then just take the end here And you rub it on the glass Make sure that you cover all of the glass. The Liquid from the potato is actually pretty clear. Maybe this will actually work To be honest with you.

I’ve, never actually tried it Get a clean paper towel and we’ll just lightly buff off any off the streaks And thats streak free and looks good And then the last one is going to be the hand sanitiser just get A little bit and put it right on there and then we’ll, rub it right in And then we’ll, get a new paper towel and buff it out, Get that nice and clear just like the others.

So in this corner we have the rain.x Shaving cream, Baby Soap, Potato Hand. Sanitiser Now lets go, get the steaming hot water and see how it works. So we have our hot pot of water Lets test it out. So, as we can see, our rain.

x And our shaving cream Worked great Now, if we go down to the bottom here, Our baby shampoo left some kind on residue when it gets humid. So it does not look that great Actually feels kinda soapy, which makes sense Our potato again left some kind of residue doesn’t.

Look that clear its not soapy, at least And then our hand senatiser, which is alcohol. The reason people say it works is because its alcohol That obviously didn’t work. So from our results we can see the top 2 came out great.

These 3 didn’t work out that well, The Worst being the hand sanitiser, But the Potato and the baby soap didn’t work that great either. So in conclusion, the shaving cream worked just as well as the store bought rain.

x. Everybody has shaving cream at home, So in my mind its a clear winner, you don’t need to go out and buy anything special. It didn’t fog up, it looks nice and clear and it was pretty easy to apply. The results speak for them selves Before and after No shaving cream, Shaving cream, Pretty good difference there.
