anti mist for windscreen interior

What's the best anti mist for windscreen interiors? I'm having issues with my windscreen in cold mornings. I don't want a product that's leaves a visible film on the screen

I just use the heater / air con and it de-mists it quickly and stays de-misted.

Wife's previous Fiesta had a heated green, which I much admit was very useful ...

Haven't tried any personally but wouldn't a mist on the screen indicate the car has/had a water leak into the interior previously? Just depends how bad it is i guess!

interior misting

damp in a car could just be off your clothes or shoes. A Damp atmosphere Just needs to keep your fan running all the time.Change the speed to suit, change the heat to suit. But keep the fan running, use AC when it's bad ie when you first get in on a damp, rainy day, cold day.
My fan is on 2 of 4, face & feet, temp is just into the RED, just move it up or down to suit. Cold Damp day AC on full through face vents clears the car quickest for me. over to youhttp://www.detailingworld.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/thumb.gif

I'll quote myself here:

If it's purely down to the people getting in the car when they've just been exercising or they've got damp clothes on from rain, then the aircon will sort it out, you don't have to have the car really warm for it to be effective - aircon makes the air cold, this causes the moisture to condense out and so aircon is not just cold, but also dry.
If no aircon, you'd need to use the heater to bring the internal temp up above the dew point.

Pretty sure AutoGlym Glass Polish has properties to help stop misting.

Maybe try that?

Firstly make sure the screen is as clean as you can possibly get it, secondly make sure the car is as dry as it can be inside.
I am just about to try some bags of silica gel in the mini as the Mrs is always complaining it takes too long to clear.

Does this leave a visible film on the interior glass - some products that I have seen reviewed leave some film which is difficult to see through at night!

How long does it last?

You can use air conditioning with heat. It's not a feature only for summer cooling.
