Keep Mirrors From Fogging Up With Car Wax

Steamy showers make for foggy mirrors. But if you want to walk out of the shower to a clear reflection, a little car wax can help.

Over at This Old House, writer Jennifer Stimpson suggests:

Rub a thin layer of car wax onto a bathroom mirror and buff it clean. Next time you step out of the shower, you'll be able to see your reflection without having to wipe away condensation first.

In fact, you can also use the wax to protect your shower doors and tile from water spots. A paper from North Carolina State University says this is also useful for preventing mildew. But they warn against waxing shower floors, as that can cause slipping.

This Old House has a few other clever uses for car wax too. Be sure to check out their post at the link below.

    I find proper ventilation helps immensely. The wet steam can't condense on the mirror if it's not there.

    Wonder if this would stop swimming goggles fogging up?
