Drivers stunned at free hack to defog your car that works in just seconds

Sitting in the car waiting for your car to de-fog can be so frustrating - especially when you're in a rush to get somewhere and haven't left enough time to clear your windscreen.

But a mega easy trick shared on TikTok could save you sitting behind the wheel for what feels like forever - and drivers are already pretty stunned by how simple it is.

You can watch the trick below:

Shared on TikTok by @carsdotcom the idea is so simple, and can be achieved in just a few easy steps.

"Foggy windows? No problem - try this hack!" The company wrote.

The first step is to turn the heater up to the maximum temperature, to make sure as much heat as possible is heading to your windows.

Next, turn on the air conditioning, as this will make the air inside the vehicle much drier - a crucial step in clearing the windscreen quickly.

Once the air con is on, turn off the air circulation - this button can often be found with a car icon featuring an arrow pointing backwards.

Next, open the windows just a touch - and voila! The windscreen should be clear.

Drivers are already pretty impressed with the video, with one person explaining they had been struggling with the problem when they found the clip.

"We were having this issue and it was TikTok to the rescue," they wrote.

Meanwhile another said: "Wowwww I gotta try this."

And a third added: "Great tip!"

And a fourth commented that the idea was 'so helpful'.

Earlier this year, we told you about the man who attempted a de-icing hack on a cold morning - but ended up with some serious regret after his car reversed and smashed into his neighbour’s garage.

Daniel Johnston, 19, had turned his engine on so the heated windscreen would remove the frost, but he was left in a ‘blind panic’ after it lurched backwards and crunched right into his neighbour’s garage door, causing £750 worth of damage.

CCTV footage caught the moment poor Daniel desperately attempted to grab the wheel to prevent the car from hitting his neighbour's garage - but the car only came to a stop after hitting the door.

Daniel's bumper was ripped off in the incident and he was left with a dent in the side of the car, but luckily he had the £400 worth of damage fixed at his work for £120.
