Defogging Your Bathroom Mirror

No one wants to waste precious time in the morning defogging a bathroom mirror.Rather than spend time during your hurried morning shower, why not try this bathroom cleaning tip? Make mirror defogging part of your weekly bathroom cleaning ritual. To prevent your mirror from fogging after your shower, clean it once a week it with a solution of dishwashing liquid and water.

If your mirror has already fogged, aim a hot air dryer towards it and it will clear in no time.

This was a great tip. My husband always complains about the mirror being fogged after his showers. I tried this and he keeps raving about it.

The hot air dryer should not be a plugged in electric hair dryer as portable electical appliances and water don't mix and could kill

I have tried the shaving cream tip, and it was AWFUL! It stayed cloudy for days and it took about 4-5 washes to get my mirror clean again...

Go to an automotive store and buy the defogger they sell for car windows, spray it on mirror and wipe off just once a week. No more fogged mirrors, guaranteed!

Good tips, I was once told to use newspaper to wipe dry the mirror to give a sparkling clean effect. It works wonder to prevent mirror from fogging too.
