This is a question for the shower shavers.

My shave mirror has gotten so cloudy I could barely see, so I bought a new mirror today.  I hear Rain-X is pretty good (based on an internet search).  What are you guys using to keep your mirrors clear, if anything?

Cheers,
Eric

Old trick if your windshield wipers fail. Take a potato, cut in half and rub agaisnt the glass. It creates a clear, but super slick surface water cannot bead on.

Get you a can of Barbasol. Rub it all over the mirror and let it dry. Wipe off. Have not tried but a couple people I know swear by it. I plan to try it this week. 

I found car wax actually works pretty good to. Allows the moisture to just run off.

Back in my cartridge days (shower shaving), I used to smear a soap film on the mirror.
Sure it wasn't the prettiest but it did the job and rinsed off easily.

I returned the shave mirror I just bought, which had a magnifying function that made the image very distorted.  I exchanged it for one of these.  Thanks for the recommendation.  First use is tomorrow.

I have a cheapie 5.99 suction cup mirror I bought at Bed, Bath, and Beyond that was supposed to be anti-fog (yeah,right...). I just wipe it with a hand towell after I shower and before I shave (shower shaver here). I have it stuck where water doesn't splash when I rinse off the lather, so unless I'm super messy no need to wipe after shaving.

Shaving cream is a good deterrent for foggy mirrors. I usually apply shaving cream on the  mirror before I shave, it works.Or you could even try cleaning it off with a squeegee, I recently bought one from better living dispenser http://www.dispenser.com/ , but I normally use it to clean the shower wall. You could even try buying a fog free mirror from any store.

I think this is a scuba diver's truck, but you can spit on the mirror. I did it when I shaved in the shower and it worked.

I used this: https://www.amazon.com/Squeegee-ToiletTr...B005OSQGN8 today.  It worked great.  No fog, and no need to put any gunk on the mirror.  The mirror also was distortion free and had a good surface area (not a tiny little mirror).  Thumbs up!

Barbasol foam in a can works pretty good.

If you swim or scuba, then the fog-free products used for the goggles works well.

Prior to traditional shaving I could only shave in the shower and also encountered the issue of a foggy mirror. Body soap and canned shaving goo were always on hand as eventually even the reportedly fog free mirrors succumbed. 

Now that I've ditched the carts and employ proper prep and technique I couldn't imagine shower shaving again. I'd be too concerned about my equipment, besides there is such a thing as too much water when it comes to lather!

That said, my daughter shaves in the shower (with a LadySchick, Rooney Super Badger, Aesop bowl and the entire Simpson unscented range), but she doesn't need a mirror to see her legs!
