How to check if defroster is working?

Hey all,
I got my top replaced last week and I want to check if my defroster is functioning... what's the best way to check it? I mean I can't generate fog lol
My friend suggested watering the rear window.. does that work?
Thanks for any input

Get one of those stick on thermometer and see if the color change?

Or turn it on in the morning when it is relatively cooler, wait for it to heat up, then spray a fine mist of water on it.
