Post: RE: Shower Mirror

Rain x has an anti fog version, but I didn't find it that effective.  I've found if I just throw a couple handfuls of warm water on the mirror, it will stay clear long enough to shave.

Post: RE: How to prevent stuck garden hose?

Is it possible this could be an electrolysis issue?  Perhaps there's voltage leaking from something that's grounded to the water pipes.  Just a thought.
