Moisture/condensation in front lights

Got some condensation/moisture in front lights.

What is the solution to the problem?

Bags of silica gell?

Thanks

Should avoid washing car when car hot — as car light cools down moist air can get sucked into the light lens cover.

There have been several earlier forum postings on this subject that might interest you.

See OP from @ima2nr

And this post by @uberjeph
“Here's also a quick video I shot showing how quick and easy it is to open the light after it's out and baked in the oven. I used paint scrapers, not screwdrivers since they're a lot thinner.”
