Keeping Fingerprints off Mirrored Cabinets

If you have a mirrored cabinet (such as a medicine cabinet) that requires you to touch the mirror to open it, thus leaving fingerprints, I have found that placing small vinyl clings/decals at the spot you touch eliminates the fingerprints. I like to change the vinyl clings to correspond with the seasons or holidays. You can involve your children in this, too!

I have read that applying a layer of shaving cream on the mirror (like a "window polish") helps repel fingerprints, fog, and lint on the mirror.

(I've tried the shaving cream idea and it streaked and left such a film that I had a TERRIBLE time getting it off!)

The shaving cream has worked for me. You need to use the cheapest kind you can find (not gel). It keeps the mirror clear for a couple of months, and then I just use the shaving cream again.
