To reduce the fog moisture on your mirror, Meek can add an electric defogger to the mirror. The defogger consists of a very thin electric heating pad that is attached to the back of the mirror. The pad creates a gentle warmth on the mirror’s surface to prevent moisture from condensing on the mirror’s surface during a shower or bath.
