    Maybe. Depends on what is causing it.

    Vaping is causing it, 50/50 liquid about 5 ml in the evenings. Not planning to change a thing in my vaping. Just wondering if cleaning the air would help.

    Here in Holland it's only a problem in winter, there are a lot of air purifiers that work in different ways. What type do you use ?

    I have a Ionic Tower in my living room and cape 20mls a day, but I have vaulted ceilings. In my truck is where I need one. The vape plus dust hazes the windows.

    try waiting 3 weeks before cleaning the windows... it takes just as much energy to clean them at 3 weeks as it does for 1 week....

    or you could put up blinds/drapes and not worry about it ;)

    I have a purifier with a CADR rating of 250 in a rather small room. It's a HEPA that can trap particles down to 0.3 micron. It does help with dust (and allergies), but not as much with vapor. Why? Because vapor deposits on surfaces before the purifier has time to trap it.

    Foggy windows in the winter, is something I've learned to live with in my 4 plus years of vaping.

    Foggy windows, yup, a vaper lives there :lol:

    You could vape outside, or exhale your vapor into a filter, like several sheets of paper towel. Maybe have a vaping room, or if you have a cellar, take it there?

    I got the fog, mentally and on the windows. I don't care about the windows, I recall washing windows when I smoked. That water became nasty, like toxic waste water or something the EPA released into a stream. I just wash them down and the water is clear.

    And here I thought all I needed were new glasses to see out the window.

    It's winter here in Scotland, my windows would fog up regardless of my vaping; though vaping exacerbates it. The clothes dryer too. It's a question of warm/humid air indoors and the cold glass on which it condensates. I just bought a small dehumidifier and the problem went away.

    Not sure why everyone else is having these problems. I work from home so I vape in my house all day and all night. I blow vapor on my computer monitor screens and never see any residue or fog on any surface from vaping. Not my screens, not my windows, nothing.

    If I had to guess, I bet you are mtl at low wattage.

    0.5 ohm 30 watt, yes I MTL, but I do it with restricted lung airflow settings. So decent clouds. Enough to obscure field of view when driving with one puff, if not careful.
