Waiting for your car windows and windscreen to become clear on cold mornings can be a real pain, adding a lot of time to your journey.
It can also create a huge mess, especially if the mist is on the inside of your windows, as endless wiping with a cloth can cause marks and streaks to appear.
However, it's vital that your windscreen is completely clear before you set off, as failing to do so can mean you're landed with a hefty fine. To help with this, one woman tested out four 'weird' demisting hacks that don't involve using a scraper - and they all seemed to work well.
My London reports that Lexi Iles put some common household products to the test rather than using deicer fluid, which isn't always environmentally friendly.
And although they all worked, there was one in particular that stood out against the rest.
Here's everything that Lexi tried, and what she thought about each one.
You'll likely have this lying around if you have a cat at home, but even if you don't, it's easy and cheap to pick up from the shops.
All you need to do is find an old sock or pair of tights, and fill it up with the litter, tying it at the top so that it can't escape and make a mess, and place it under your front and back window.
Lexi said: "This trick was so effective that I left my car for 10 minutes and by the time I returned the windscreens were clear as day. The cat litter works by absorbing the moisture in the air. Plus you can leave these stockings of litter in the car and plus them back in place after you finish your drive to ensure you don't get into a misty car."
Drivers have sworn by this trick for years, so Lexi decided to try it out.
Rub some standard washing up liquid over your windows using a clean cloth, making sure to buff it
