Step 2: Rub the Castile soap all over the bathroom mirror.

Allow the soap to sit on the mirror for 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 3: Use a microfiber cloth to wipe the Castile soap away.

The Castile soap creates a layer on the mirror that steam cannot penetrate. Even though the mirror looks clear when you wipe it away, there is still a super thin layer of soap left that you can't really see left behind.

The result is a nice, clean mirror that you can actually see yourself in after showering! You may need to repeat this process once per month to keep your bathroom mirrors from fogging up.
