NUISANCE IN THE MORNING

Foggy auto windows can be an aggravation toward the beginning of the day, particularly in case you're racing to get to work.

You either need to risk driving out of a scarcely-transparent windshield or spent several minutes waiting for your windows to defog.

That is, nonetheless, except if you choose to use this basic trick that guarantees your vehicle windows will never fog up again.

GETTING RID OF FOGGY WINDOWS WITH A SOCK AND CAT LITTER

To begin with this extraordinarily savvy idea, you will need an old sock that is clean and free from openings and auxiliary issues so the litter can't spill out.

You also need cat litter and masking tape. It is prescribed that you use a low-scent or no-smell cat litter just so your car's cabin does not smell like litter.

Fill the foot portion of the sock with the litter and afterward use your tape to secure the open ends of the sock that you are using.

It's better to use a smaller tube so that you can put in an adequate litter and still have a lot of room toward the end to tie it off safely so the litter can't spill.

Once you make your litter-filled sock, basically put it on your dashboard when you are stopped.

You may also consider making one to return in the back window too since this can also get extremely foggy on those chilly days.

And, this is it. You will come out in the morning and not need to stress over taking out mist before leaving your garage.

Another useful car hacks you don't want to miss are using toothpaste to clean the headlights, a shoe for a cup holder, a staple remover to add keys to the key ring, your seat warmer to keep food warm, and nail polish to fix paint chips and scrapes.
