In keeping with my "Do this, you'll feel better" series, I'm challenging you to take a good look at those mirrors. Do they have mirror spit? Have you gotten used to looking through the cloud of spit at your reflection? Well, you shouldn't have. Shame on you. That's gross.
It takes less than two minutes to remedy this dilemma. In the bathroom that my kids use this problem needs remedied daily. Yes, they can clean it off themselves. No, they do not think this is as big of a problem as I do, so they don't clean it themselves. They think I'm lame and that I overreact to the spit. I think they're messy and would live like pigs if I didn't intervene. We're at an impasse.
Here's what I do to keep up on it: I regularly change the hand towels in the bathrooms. When I take an old towel down I wet a corner of it and wipe down the mirror. Then I use the dry side to dry the mirror. That's it. It doesn't streak, and it gets that nasty spit off the mirror. No Windex. No sponges. No paper towels. Just a simple wipe off when I'm changing out towels. If Windex is more your thing, go for it.
You might be thinking, "what's her problem? It's just a little spit, who cares. I can see why her kids think she overreacts." First, simmer down. Second, I promise that if you clean off your mirrors you'll feel better and understand what I'm talking about. And if someone could convince my kids that they, too, would feel better, that'd be great...
