Quickly De-Fog Your Bathroom Mirror With A Blow Dryer

Hot showers are great, but even with the fan on in the bathroom your window can get completely fogged up. Wiping the fog with a towel never works completely, and waiting is, well, waiting. So how can you solve this problem?

Instructables user Carleyy suggests turning to your blow dryer:

It's frustrating to lose mirror access after a steamy shower! Dry that steam off with a quick blast of hot air from your hair dryer. Now you can just leave the blow dryer on and continue drying your hair :)

It's a clever, simple solution to a common problem. Pretty neat!

Ed. note: This is one of those things my family has done since I was a child, and if you grew up in a similar household, it may seem like an obvious tip. But Dachis had never heard of it before, and it's a can't-go-wrong shortcut if you've never done it before.

    I've been doing this for a long time now lol.

    ...or you could just leave the window ~1-2" ajar, and you don't have to run exhaust fan at all then. Much cleverer because you use less power doing it. No fan, no running of hairdryer.

    put a bit of shaving cream on the mirror then wipe it off with a towel. somehow it stops the mirror from fogging up again while u shave.

    I haven't tried it because it rarely happens to me, but i imagine RainX on the mirror could work. Although if your mirror is fogging up too badly, chances are your gonna cause some issues elsewhere down the track due to excess moisture (though im far from an expert on the subject).
