Here's the place to share tips/tricks 2017. We'll start with glass. Who knows where we'll end up.
FROM THE SOAPBOX:
The rear window defroster does not work at all.
By the time I came back to my apartment, I had no feeling in any of my toes. I guess I have to wait and go shopping tomorrow. I hate shopping on Saturday's.
I know RainX is OldSkoole (1980s), and many products claim to be better, but I find it works/lasts well, if you do a quick clean with 0000 (finest grade) steel wool after the usual spray cleaner before you apply it

Dang. I thought you had sled dogs up there!
For the interior surface, a dab of many brands of shaving cream work about as well as Rainx, but must be reapplied periodically if you're counting on hem to help remove frost vs just anti-fog
There are DIY defroster films for the rear defroster, but first check if the problem is just a broken connecting wire or blown fuse (cheaper/better fix). A friend with a voltmeter can check that in a minute.
Actually, I think EVERYONE should own a "multimeter" (they measure more than just voltage). Harbor Freight gives away free Cen-Techs (print this coupon), but according to my Great Guru of the North, AvE, when Princess Auto (Canadian equivalent) offers you a "Power Fist" [their house brand], they're not talking about multimeters.
Of course, then you'd need to know when/how to use them. I'd be glad to help with that.
