I wouldn't bother . To be totally honest it's a total waste of time and effort

misty2clear.co.uk might be something to look at. They sell patented valve system which is to meant to remove the mist from the double glazed unit without taking the thing apart. Never used them myself, so not able to say how good or bad the valve system may be.

Alternatively check out the following DIY Doctor project: http://www.diydoctor.org.uk/projects/condensationdg.htm for more information on dealing with condensation in double glazing
