  • Grab a Bar of Soap


    Step 1: This really works with any bar of soap, but as you can see, I used a green, generic one. Easy peasy.

  • Run Soap Under Water


    Step 2: Gently run the top of the soap under some water. Don't get it soaked, but just slightly wet.

  • Rub Soap Over Mirror


    Step 3: Rub the soap across the mirror in streaks. Don't worry if it looks streaky. It won't last!

  • Rub Soap Into Mirror


    Step 4: Use a cloth to rub the soap into the mirror. If it's hard to completely blend it, wet the cloth slightly. The streaks will be gone!

  • Shower!


    Step 5: Shower in the hottest water you can stand. Don't worry about the windows fogging up or the moisture in the air! The mirror will stay fog-free.

  • Stay Fog-Free!


    Step 6: Admire your fog-free mirror and be happy it takes so very little to make it happen. Those in the know say this lasts at least three showers, and when it stops, just do it again.
