Anti-fog treatment

My girlfriend has a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta, and she has had a bad problem about her windows fogging up. I was wondering what a good product people use for this is.

Crack the window when you're banging in the back seat.

Seriously, though, the best way to prevent fogging is to minimize the amount of moisture in the vehicle. Maybe she needs to do a better job of kicking the snow/water off her boots in the winter? If she has carpeted floor mats, take them out of the car and let them air dry in the house for a couple of days. On a dry sunny day, maybe try opening all the windows and parking the car in the sun, if that's an option.
She should keep her windows as clean as possible, too. Clean glass doesn't fog as fast as glass covered in dust/road grime.

That's the weird thing is that other than a closed bottle of water there is no moisture in the car. As far as the cold it got below freezing last week and I hated it. I like the hot weather.

I've been to Georgia; there's moisture everywhere. My clothes stuck to me like crazy when I was down there, haha!

I think Rain-X makes an anti-fog product; she could give that a shot.

Haha. I forgot about the humidity, it's been 80%+ for the past 2 weeks. I picked some of that up at Walmart today. Hopefully it works.

If that doesn't work maybe one of those products made for scuba diving masks will?

The defroster only makes it worse. She has about a 25 minute drive to school twice a week. She ran the defrost the entire way, and it looked like this .

Hahaha. That sounds like a slogan you would hear on TV or the radio somewhere.

The first step to clear windows is admitting the need to release in the parking lot.

Check the in cabin filter for the AC. If its clogged, it will recirculate the cabin air causing moisture to build up.
