How to Prevent Fog on Glass Surfaces

Foggy glass can be frustrating, impairing visibility and hindering the clarity of windows, mirrors, or other glass forms. Fortunately, there are effective methods to prevent fogging from happening while keeping your glass crystal clear. 

To prevent fog on glass surfaces: clean the glass with a streak-free cleaner, spray a moderate amount of an anti-fog product onto a dry, lint-free microfiber towel, and wipe in a back-and-forth motion until evenly applied. 

Required Products 

To prevent fog on your glass surfaces, you’ll need the following: 

  • A streak-free glass cleaner 
  • An anti-fog glass treatment 
  • Microfiber towels 

Clean the glass with a streak-free cleaner

Before applying any anti-fog product, starting with a clean surface is essential. Any debris lingering on the glass can cause micro scratches when applying pressure with a towel. We recommend using a streak-free glass cleaner like Invisible Glass. It uses no scents or dyes which can cause streaking and is a safe yet effective bet for cleaning glass. 

Spray the cleaner directly onto the glass and wipe using a lint-free microfiber cloth. Avoid using paper towels, which can leave an uneven finish or residue behind. Ensure that you remove all dirt, smudges, or fingerprints that may be present on the glass.

Next, select a reliable anti-fog product for the type of glass you’re working with. Invisible Glass Anti-Fog is an excellent option for those treating windshields, mirrors, and windows. It uses a unique formula that prevents hazing and streaks from fogging surfaces. 

Refer to the instructions for the recommended application and settling time. For Invisible Glass Anti Fog, spray a moderate amount into a dry, lint-free towel. We recommend starting with a little product and increasing it as needed. Remember: The more you apply, the greater chance that you’ll have excess to clean. 

Wipe in a back-and-forth motion until evenly applied

With the solution sprayed into a microfiber towel, wipe the clean surface using long back-and-forth motions. Avoid using any circular technique, which can lead to pooling and an unsightly finish. Focus on getting the corners or edges of the glass, as these areas tend to be more prone to fog accumulation. 

Once you’ve covered the entire area, allow it time to dry – this can take a few minutes with good circulation. If you accidentally touch or smear it before it dries, simply reapply more and wipe to reactivate the solution. 

Repeat these processes whenever you notice your glass getting foggy, particularly in a high-humidity environment or during temperature changes. If fogging reoccurs, simply repeat the process above. 

How does anti-fog work? 

Anti-fog chemicals create a surface tension change on glass surfaces. Condensation still occurs on your glass, but it forms less visibly. Instead of large, fog-forming droplets, condensation transpires as microscopic specs that are nearly impossible to see with the naked eye. 

Keep your glass invisible! 

That’s all it takes to prevent fogging on your glass surfaces! Whether it’s on the road or in the house, these simple steps are all you need. Remember to: clean the glass with a streak-free cleaner, spray a moderate amount of anti-fog products onto a dry lint-free microfiber towel, and wipe in a back-and-forth motion. These preventative measures will allow you to enjoy a fog-free glass and secure enhanced clarity no matter the conditions. See things clearly and enjoy the view!
