Default Condensation removal....

Condensation on the inside windows. I hate it. How do I get rid of it?
What's the cause of it? Why does it take so long to remove with the
defroster? How can I seal up the outside of my car. What's the best way to
check for air/water infiltration. Ugh. Help!

I run my AC briefly to get rid of it.

Not sure if sealing your car would help, if that were possible.
Remember that condensation is due to the humidity in the air and your
car would still contain air, even if sealed.

Best way to deal with inside condensation is to use the A/C.

Best way to *avoid* it is to *clean* the inside glass surfaces.

As others have and will state, the A/C must be run with the defroster (your
A/C -is- operational, isn't it?). Also, that YOU are in the car ....
BREATHING ... contributes significantly to condensation on your windows. If
you get into the car with WET wearing wet clothing, this too contributes to
window condensation.

If your vehicle is equipped with a manual 'recirc mode' and you
are operating your heating system in the 'recirc mode,' that's
likely your problem. If not, check for a heater core leak

Yep. That, and tell your passengers to stop breathing.

BTW, while there are products out there that are sold specifically to
curtail condensation, a bottle of windex and some newspaper works very
well.

Ah, yes. When in doubt, use the simplets option. Thanks.

And thanks to all who have posted. I really appreciate it.

I always forget that part. The heater gets going and evaporates the water
from around our shoes and mats, then the moist air hits the not-yet-heated
windows.
