How Do You Defog Your Bathroom Mirror?

As you might expect, it's not all serious topics all the time here at the Sugar HQ, and that's why I ask the hard-hitting questions, like "Have you ever had a massage go too far?" and "How do you let it hang?" — in regards to toilet paper, of course.

Speaking of this bathroom necessity, after becoming frustrated with Mr. Bella for leaving linty remnants behind, it became obvious that he was using a little TP to defog my steamy mirror after showering. I'm not too keen on the Mr. B. approach, so tell me, whether it's a "wax on, wax off" method with your hands or a swipe of a towel, how do you make your mirror less cloudy?

Usually I keep the window open during a shower but if it dogs up regardless I use a paper towel.

shaving cream. it will keep your mirror de-fogged for a few showers. really does the trick.

I usually hit it with the blowdryer for a few seconds. Does the trick every time.

I usually leave a candle burning in the bathroom, that tends to do the trick. If I forget, I use the hairdryer on the mirror.

Either the fan or if I'm in a hurry, my blow dryer.

I only take hot and long enough showers twice a week (hair washing, shaving, exfoliating, stuff like that) and my mirror doesn't get foggy with my usual short showers. But when it does, I usually wipe it with my boyfriend's towel :x

I bought a little hand-held squeegee for a couple bucks at Ikea. Two squeaks, and I can see!

If I turn the fan for the vent on and crack the door just a bit the mirror doesn't get foggy. Plus it's better for the walls if the moisture doesn't build up, that's how mold starts to form.

I use a the same thing i use to get the water off of my shower walls...a squeegee? does the trick but doesnt leave streaks!

I use a dehumidifier and keep the door open. In the winter I open the window, but most of the year it's too humid here for that to work.

you'd think by now they would put fogproof mirrors in bathrooms...

I use TP like Mr. Bella! It's so wasteful, though, huh?
