To make sure our local drivers continue to drive safely, our Roslyn area Honda dealer is offering some helpful advice on how to defrost your windshield properly and quickly. 

Defogging Your Windshield For Easy Driving Near Roslyn

According to former NASA engineer Mark Rober, there are certain key steps you can take to quickly and efficiently clear the fog from your car windows. Specifically there’s a certain air conditioning setting that more effectively get rid of the fogging in the windows than others. The best way to make sure that you have clear visibility is to follow the same steps as Rober. For one, put the defroster fan on the highest setting. You’ll also put the temperature control on its hottest, have the A/C turned on, and the recirculate turned off. Lastly, make sure that the windows are cracked open. This way, the air will be similar to the air outside, and your windows will quickly defog.
