Dehumidify

Firstly ensure your glass is free of grease and dirt by cleaning with a glass cleaner without any special coatings.

Get a dehumidifier plenty of car specific ones available, or make your own from silica cat litter in a sock or cloth bag and keep it on the dash board. The cat litter belowshould last you all winter for £2.20 (this method also worsk in the home)

Then use the de-mister function on your heating/AC.

Opening a window will help as the air exchange will swap internal moist warm air for dryer outside air also helping to remove some moisture from the air thus clearing the screen sooner.

Anti fog coatings in my experience don't work as intended

I had the same problem years ago since then I have 4 reusable silica dehumidifiers and coat the inside of the screen with rainx, never seen humidity inside car again. I also have the AC on all over the year.

The rainx stuff needs to be applied according to instructions and not when is too cold otherwise will streak and is a PITA to make the screen clear.
