Mirrors always fog up after we come out of the shower. It is the same story. Shower. Fog. Shower. Fog. Shower. Fog.

It doesn’t have to be that way. You can stop mirrors from fogging up with a bit of science.  The trick is that you have to stop water droplets from beading up on the surface of the glass. Scientists would say that you need to change the surface tension. One way to do that is to spread a bit of shaving cream on the glass and then remove it 30 seconds later. The next time you shower, there won’t be any fog where the shaving cream once was.

Here’s to better living with a bit of chemistry.
