  • White vinegar

  • Clean cloth

Vinegar cleans, disinfects and prevents fog on mirrors and car windshields.

Not only can you use vinegar to clean glass and mirrors, but it also works well as an anti-fog solution. Wipe the vinegar mixture on your bathroom mirrors, car windshield and any other glass surface you wish to keep from fogging up.

Step 1

Clean the mirror or other surface that you wish to de-fog. Make sure it is dry and streak-free. It doesn't matter what product you use to clean the surface, and you can even use the vinegar in a cold-water solution to do it.

Step 2

To make the anti-fog solution, mix 2 oz. of white vinegar with 1 qt. of hot water in a large bowl.

Step 3

Put your soft cloth in the solution and wring out the excess. An old T-shirt works well for this. Wipe the glass, mirror, car window or whatever surface you want to anti-fog with the vinegar solution. Leave it on wet and let it air-dry.

Step 4

Reapply the solution and repeat steps 1 through 3 as part of a weekly cleaning regimen.
