NICE Experiment :: No fog on the mirror

Well I do not know how it is in other states, but here in the europe it is a issue, when ever one takes a hot bath, the mirror in the bathroom get fogged up and take some time to clear for one to use it again, the best way to make it fog proof is to take regullar shaving cream a plam full [depending on the size] and spread over the mirror then clean it with the toilet paper. This leaves a thin film on the mirror and it does not get fogged for the period of 10 to fifteen days.

Hope this helps some one. Question
I know that, everytime I go to swim I always wash the glasses by the shaving cream or shampoo... that's a good idea~~
(I've used these many times myself.)

Just a few things you might not have thought of...

I had never heard of the toothpaste method for removing permanent magic marker from assorted materials, (especially plastic) until I went looking for an easy solution.

Gel toothpaste seems to work the best, but any type will do in a pinch. Just spread some on wherever the magic marker is and scrub!
Use paper towels, an old toothbrush, etc.
You can also use toothpaste to help remove permanent marker on clothing/fabric - just be aware of what kind of material you're attempting to clean.
Silk, satin, leather, lace... things like that need a little extra care.

Idea Try using WD-40 for removing the glue left behind by labels.

Need to remove a stubborn label from something made out of polyethylene/polystyrene plastic, (like a CD/DVD case) and don't have WD-40?
Try rubbing it generously with baby oil & letting it sit for about 24 hours.
A lot of labels will peel right off like saran wrap after the baby oil makes the label gum adhere to the paper instead of the plastic.

Idea A few drops of your favorite cologne or perfume in the rinse cycle will keep your clothes smelling great if you run out of dryer sheets or fabric softener. (Just make sure nobody's allergic to it.)

Idea The best glue I've ever used - Gorilla Glue! That stuff will bind anything together.
Gorilla Tape is also incredible.

Arrow ATTENTION SECOND-HAND SHOPPERS! - If you purchase any type of cloth-covered furniture from a yard sale, flea market, Goodwill, etc, be sure that you wash any part of the item that can be washed and spray/powder it all over with a good flea killer before you bring it into your house!
If you have a way to store the furniture outside for at least 24 hours while the flea treatment does it's job, this is highly recommended.
I cannot stress this enough, especially for pet owners.
A $5 flea-infested sofa or chair can turn into a very costly entire home pest control problem.

Hope these little tips help some of you out! Smile
