    Default Frost on inside of windshield solution!

    For the past 3 years in Calgary, I've had a problem with frost on the inside of my windows and front windshield on 2 vehicles, a 2002 Explorer and now a 2003 Murano leading me to sit in my car and scrape the insides of my car and cursing this God awful city the entire time, it created A LOT of stress for me as the insides would frost over even if I parked for an hour...I read about this before randomly online and thought I'd try it out and was amazed at how well it works! Just wanted to share with fellow Beyonders because it has saved me so much stress....basically, I just bought a Rubbermaid sandwich tray and filled it with a normal box of baking soda and put it on the dashboard in the windshield, done. Works amazing!

    PS...does anyone know if I have to keep changing the baking soda every month or anything?

    thats prety cool! as far as the baking soda though, i guess i would change it once you see that it starts frosting again.

    Does the front defroster switch not work for you? All the Fords I've sat in have had that setting on the heater, and it seems to work alright.

    The baking soda is a good trick though.

    i dont think the problem is that his defroster doesn't work its just that its annoying as hell to have to either

    a) sit and wait for the front defroster to get rid of the frost, which typically could take 5-10+ minutes

    b)scrape the inside window and make yourself look like an idiot


    sounds like a cool trick, thanks for the info

    Just curious.. do you have your vent set to "recirculate" or to take the air in from the outside?

    In this cold weather.. having it set to recirculate will almost always frost up the windows on the inside..

    You must fuck in your car alot to build up so much moisture/humidity.

    On a more serious note, check your climate control settings. If its on recirculate, switch it back to fresh air mode. If its already on fresh air mode, perhaps something is broken/blocked and fresh air is not making it to the inside of the car.

    my car does this too. All of my buddies who have new cars it does this. People with older cars it doesnt.

    I remember reading/hearing somewhere that it was because of the moisture seals in new cars are good that they dont release as much humidity.

    You guys don't understand lol...nothing worked...all the air circulation settings are correct, the cracking a bit of window after park the truck doesn't work either, I bought the Murano a month ago and there must be a crazy leak somewhere because it starts to frost over in about an hour after I park it...it is BAADDD...so yea, if anyone is having extreme cases of frosting on the inside of their windshield, the baking soda trick works like magic!

    Have u ever tried putting your A/C on w/ the heat on? I know it sounds stupid but I have to do it in my trucks and it works great. Never get any fog/frost of any kind. That baking soda trick is pretty cool though. Never heard of it before

    Most cars these day will do that when you put it in defrost setting.
