Morning dew on windshiel

Any way to keep the dew of the plastic windshield on the ranger when parked outside overnight?
It's a pain to wipe it off and always afraid of scratching the plastic.

Throw a plastic tarp over it. Rain X spray may also help it run off better

I have a full windshield myself It's very frustrating coming out at 530am and your windshield is frosted over or heavy dew.. I'm about to take mine off. no issues in the summer.. but cold frosty damp mornings in the Fall it's horrible.. only heated air will dry it out..

It won't help with dew or frost , but if you do inevitably scratch up the plastic or polycarbonate windshield , standard old Pledge furniture polish will have the view looking through the windshield like new again . Best part is that Pledge is cheap and found in almost every store .

pledge doesn't leave a oily residue ? I can testify rainX doesn't work on plastic. it's just pan ole moisture forming cold air warm surface

I use a rubber squeegee to remove most of it. then a dry soft towel..
