Demisting Your Windows Quickly

The blog this week is about demisting your windows quickly and effectively. Driving with reduced visibility will not only endanger you and your fellow road users but also opens you up to a hefty fine if you are found to be dangerous driving because of your poor visibility. Everyone is trying to save money at the moment, interest rates are rising, fuel bills are rising, food costs are soaring etc so when it comes to owning a car, we need all the help we can get to keep costs down. Read on to find out more:

Now we are moving from light mornings and long dry days into dark, cold and wet mornings and nights we know that our windows will be misted up and we may have to scrape ice. Leave an extra 5 minutes every morning and evening to ensure that you are able to see properly out of your windows before starting your journey. If you have a more modern Volvo or Toyota you may well have a climate control button – use it to demist your windows. Older vehicles may not have a climate control button. If you are lucky enough to have a heated windscreen it can not only melt the ice on the outside but can demist the inside – lucky you! If you are not fortunate enough to have a demist button or a heated windscreen then use your heating system but wait until the engine warms up a little so that the air being blown onto the windows is warm and not cold. Whilst you are demisting your windows you can be outside scraping off any ice. Do not leave your car running and unattended – not only do you risk the theft of your vehicle, you also risk a fine! Remember – less haste in the morning will make for a more pleasant and safer journey. Happy Safe Motoring Folks!
