You find a really hot girl, and someplace tucked away ;)


You are making condensation; so you want warm moist air to hit a cooler surface, in this case the glass so by just getting it humid in the car (in your preferred manner), and have a cooler things for the water to hit, the water will condense and fog up the windows.

One way would be to power up an electric kettle and set it safely in the car. The steam will heat the windows and fog them up. Then
remove kettle and replace with actors.

There are steamers made for clothing that could be used, or humidifiers.

If you are talking about fake fogging, in my student days I used Arid Xtra Dry, which has talcum powder in it, it worked OK. Dulling Spray might work too.

For the record, I meant to say the steam will hit, not heat, the window. Typos are one thing but typos that look dumber than they are ...agh.
