How Do You Make a Vinegar Anti-Fog Solution?

To make a vinegar anti-fog solution, combine 2 tablespoons of white distilled vinegar with 1 quart of warm water. Pour the solution into a spray bottle, or wipe a soaked cloth directly on surfaces. Allow the surface to dry, and reapply the solution every two weeks.

  1. Create the anti-fog solution

    Combine 2 tablespoons of white distilled vinegar into 1 quart of warm water. Stir the ingredients together for several seconds.

  2. Prepare the solution for application

    Pour the solution into a spray bottle to apply on non-mirrored surfaces. Alternatively, keep the solution in its mixing bowl for use on mirrored surfaces.

  3. Apply the mixture

    Spray a liberal amount of the solution on non-mirrored surfaces, such as windows or on bathroom appliances. Do not wipe the mixture away, but allow it to air dry. Dip a clean cloth into the water and vinegar solution. Wipe down mirrored surfaces, such as bathroom mirrors or car mirrors. Generously apply the solution, and allow it to fully dry. Do not wipe the surface clean with a cloth, as this removes the anti-fog properties from the surface.

  4. Repeat the process every two weeks

    To prevent fog development, reapply the vinegar and water solution every two weeks. Heavy-use bathrooms or areas that experience high humidity may require more frequent applications.
