Don’t wipe your foggy windshield with a cloth – use a hidden button instead

Olive oil car cleaning hack

A man has opened up about a little-known car function that can defog your car “quickly and effectively” without the need to use a cloth or tissue. 

The TikToker, who goes by the name Precise Auto, said: “When there is fog on your car windshield, do not wipe it with a cloth or tissue.

“Not only is it ineffective but it also affects the driving safety.”

He went on to explain that all cars have an “automatic windshield defogging function”.

The TikToker explained the process, saying “you need to find the air intake mode on the car’s air conditioning console”.

Then he said to turn the function on.

Recirculation mode could be switched on, which means air is moved throughout the car but he advised switching this off.

After turning the recirculation mode off, he said to turn on external air intake.

The TikToker then said the next step is turn the windshield defrost button on.
