Stop Car Windows From Steaming Up Using Cat Litter

This simple inexpensive trick can stop car windows from steaming up using cat litter each and every cold morning with every little effort.

There’s nothing more frustrating to the morning car/truck commuter than walking out the door, running a few minutes late, and finding the windows so foggy that you just knew you are going to be late for work. As winter is approaching, many of us will experience the frustrating situation again and again during the cold early winter mornings.
Stop Car Windows From Steaming Up Using Cat Litter

We are left with two options, three really but we will get there.

The first option is to start the car and wait for that magical combination we’ve all found in our cars between the defroster, the wiper blades, and anything else you can do to make it go away.

The second is to run back into your home and grab some towels to wipe off the extra moisture, hoping it won’t come back after you’re done, but it most likely will for the first several minutes on the road. Neither of these are great when you’re in a hurry.

So, what’s your next option? What can you do to make this problem a thing of the past for good? Is there such a thing? Yes, there is. You can make your own moisture-free car and it won’t cost you much time or money to make it.

Luckily, there is a simple and effective solution to this problem.

Materials needed:

Pair of socks
Kitty litter

That’s it. While it seems strange, it actually makes perfect sense. Kitty litter is locks in moisture, removing excess from litter boxes. It does the same for cars, making your mornings fog-free as you find yourself dashing to that early morning meeting or rushing your kids off to school. Moisture won’t be part of your morning routine any longer.
