How to super clean your windshield
Follow these simple steps to clear your blurred windshield:
Clean the inside of the windshield with a soft and dry piece of cloth if it is blurred
When driving in the rain or general high humidity conditions, the windshield is often blurred and the driver’s vision impaired. In these circumstances, you should pay attention to the glass drying function that is often equipped on some current car models. This drying function will quickly clear the glass, but the drawback is that the windshield will become blurred again almost immediately after you have turned off the glass drying system.
For the cars that are not equipped with a drying system, you can use the air conditioning system instead. You should turn on the A/C and adjust the cabin’s temperature to the outside temperature, and the water vapors will gradually disappear off the windshield.
Turn on the air conditioning or glass drying system to clear the windshield when it’s raining
In light rain conditions, some drivers may choose to roll down the front window glass to about 5 to 10 centimeters and turn on the fan to circulate the air so as to avoid water vapors misting up on the windshield. However, this solution has the downside of getting rain droplets inside of the car and making the interior dirty.
