Anybody got a solution to all the fog on the windows in rain storms? I'm getting tired of driving with the windows down and the defrost blowing full blast to try to get the moisture to move out. I'm wondering about maybe Rain-Ex on the inside of the windows? I know you can get anti fog spray for ski and paintball goggles, but it would take a lot from those little bottles to treat my whole car. Anyway, suggestions appreciated. Lee Zz

Hey lee 72 240,
DON'T UNDER ANY CIRCOMSTANCE use Rain-x on the inside of your windows! Please, Please, Please DON'T DO IT! You will curse the day you were born if you do! I'm sure that "escanlon" will be telling you the same thing along with a story of a near divorce over this.....Bert

Re: Rain-x sucks....

D O N O T U S E R A I N - X A N T I F O G!!!


Thanks Bert, I cannot repeat this often enough. I used it on my Acura Legend and finally got rid of the nasty stuff on my windshield.....BY HAVING THE WINDSHIELD REPLACED!!!

I have used lacquer thinner, mineral spirits, denatured alcohol, all formulations of Windex, even naptha and just about EVERY solvent in my garage. All it does is clean it for about an hour and then it returns. The stuff should be labeled "permanent fog" for what it does. It will be so bad, that if you drive within 20 degrees of the sun, you will be blind, not blinded, you just won't be able to see through the windshield.

I have since found that if you give your windows a good cleaning with a good cleaner, they'll fog much much less. If you are a smoker you should do it often as the smoke leaves a film that the humidity loves and that's what most fog is.

THE WAY TO GET RID OF IT

Lee,
i've had the same problem during rain and cold mornings and i figured out if you run the A/C, yes the ac it will remove all the fog from the windows in minutes; you might freeze your ass off but at least you'll be able to see the road.
