Unhappy foggy situation!

I have a 1999 Kia Sephia. I live in Alabama and we have had rain every day for 2 weeks solid. My problem is this; when it is rainy weather, all the windows fog over on the inside of my car. My car has a very good heater, so I use the defroster to try to clear things up. It usually takes a long time to get the windows clear again, and since the heater is very good, it gets too hot inside the car. I have to roll one of the windows down a little so that some fresh air can come into the car. This usually helps some.

Is there any thing I can do to help the situation from occuring so much? I know rain-X makes an anti-fog liquid that is supposed to keep mirrors and windows from fogging up. But, does it really work?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

You do not have to have the temp set to hot to defrost your windows.If you have a/c and it works it should help defog the windows because it will remove moisture.Someone I work with claims the rain-x works but I have never used it personally.

Running the A/C should be sufficient.

You are using it on "Recirc" instead of Fresh

I've never used the Fog-X, but we use Rain-X on our trucks and I can vouch for the effectiveness. Especially good when it's raining so hard the windshield wipers can't keep up, but even in a moderate rain the visibility is much improved because the water beads up and goes off the windshield in between wiper sweeps.
