Can any of you guys tell me how to prevent or reduce condensation on inside of windscreen please.

I tried filling an old sock with dehumidifier chemicals and leaving on the dash but to no avail.

Problem driving me daft as it takes so long to scrape off or use climate control blower.

Use your air con with a temp set at around 21. Check your pollen filter, if it's damp then you will never cure this. As grandpa days check for wet carpets or water in rear foot well. That is usually a damaged door polythene liner. Also make sure car is set to fresh air inlet not on recirculation.

Check that the air intake scuttle drains are not blocked with leaves etc. Accessed.from under the bonnet below windscreen.
Is the air con actually working? By that I mean is the compressor kicking in, not just the fan.
This is a perennial Xpic problem that I reckon can only be solved by installing a low wattage green house tube heater.
