Well I know everybody loves to have a hot shower or bath. And when you get out you like to look in the mirror, but you can't because it is all steamed up.

Now my favorite thing to do to prevent that is to put Colgate shaving cream on my mirror. It shines and prevents the steam from fogging it up. Just be sure to rub it in well and don't put too much. If you do, it will leave white streaks and it will be embarrassing. Now you will have to do this every 3 - 4 weeks or so but I do promise you it is worth it.

  • 1/2 cup vinegar to 1 gallon water

  • 1/2 cup sudsy ammonia to 1 gallon water

  • 1/2 cup sudsy ammonia, 2 cups rubbing alcohol, 1 teaspoon liquid dishwashing detergent, 1 gallon water
