Sick of having to mop your car windscreen dry every morning this winter? Shoppers are raving about a dehumidifier bag that ‘works wonders’ – and it costs less than a tenner
Brits across the nation are waking up to find their car smothered in condensation, thanks to the ongoing bout of miserable weather.
The Met Office has warned that parts of the UK will soon be hit with up to 10 inches of snowfall, as temperatures plunge below freezing once again. The cold outside air can wreak havoc on your car, freezing the outside windscreen and fogging the inside up.
It’s important to make sure your view on the road is completely unobstructed, as failure to do is a breach of the law and can result in a minimum fine of £50. So, if you’re tired of spending your mornings having to mop the windscreen dry, you may want to invest into a dehumidifier.
The Pingi Dehumidifier Car and & Home costs just £8.49 on Amazon – and has a 4.1 star rating out of a staggering 25,730 reviews. It claims the mini cushion ‘attracts excess moisture like a magnet, effectively absorbing it’.
The product features a ‘humidity indicator’ that will slowly change from blue to pink to signal when it has ‘reached absorption capacity’. Once this happens, drivers should put the bag in the microwave twice – in three minute periods.
“I’ve used this to demist our car now that the cold weather is upon us… [It’s] been working wonders,” one shopper said. Another commented: “Love this. My windows in my old car are always dry in a morning.” WHile a third added: “Bought this dehumidifier bag for my car – was sick of demisting windows every morning. I left it on dashboard ABIT closer to the window and it did the trick – no more issues.”

However, some reviewers rated the product less than five stars, complaining it took too long to dry out, or arguing that more than one is needed to see results. “Thumbs down for mid sized cars, this might be more effective in a much smaller car though,” one shopper said.
If the condensation has turned to ice – experts over at the RAC recommend making sure your car is well-ventilated. To do this, drivers should keep their windows open whenever safe and practicable. Just maybe wind them up if you’re driving whilst it’s snowing…
